From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Novo-Ogaryovo (Russian: Ново-Огарёво), also Novo-Ogarevo, is an estate in the Krylatskoye district of Moscow to the west of the city, by the Rublyovo-Uspenskoye Highway and is the location of a suburban official residence of the President of Russia, officially recognized as such in 2000.[1]

The residence was constructed on the basis of a 19th century manor in the first half of the 1950s at the behest of Georgy Malenkov for his daughter[2] Construction work was under way when Malenkov was removed from his position (1955), and this place was used as a state estate for housing high-placed guests, for receptions and as a place of work of various governmental committees.

Novo-Ogaryovo has been often referred to as one of "gosdachas", since Soviet leaders viewed it as their vacation retreat. Since 1991 it was reserved as a governmental residence, mostly unused until it was renovated by Vladimir Putin in 2000. A six-meter-high wall surrounds the presidential residence. During Putin's term in office, luxury dachas started to appear in the vicinity.
