The building began to be built in 1902 the request of the contractor Kiev Dmitry Orlov. He wanted to make a lucrative home there (hosting apartments or rooms for living), but was shot dead in 1911 in the Far East during a business trip. The weight of the construction of a house collapsed on the shoulders of his widow. She managed to take out a loan and almost finished building, but in the final stages of construction in 1904, due to the negligence of workers in the house, there was a fire and the castle was completely burned – only remained walls. She hardly sold for 100 thousand rubles at auction. The new owner, after repair work, He began to rent housing, but rumors that rushed to Kiev in the castle continued, e durante a noite pode ser recebido de medoem todo o prédio foram tumultuosos e assobiando sons.
