Manor Fleryanovo

Wooden homestead in the village of Fleryanovo erected in 1870. After some time, 2 brick buildings were completed. Of particular note is the pediment with neo-Gothic elements, which resonates strongly with the rest of the Bochvica estate.

The bricks for this part of the building were brought from Bobruisk, from the famous factory of Rosenberg and the Lozinsky brothers, as evidenced by stamping. By the way, the pediment of this manor is very reminiscent of another Bokhvitsey estate, which is located in Pavlinovo.

The Florianovo estate consisted of 19 rooms, including an extensive library. A linden alley led to the house with an entrance through a massive gate. In 1914, the Germans dismantled it and took it away.

Manor Bokhvitsei inside

The inside of the Bokhvitsey manor looked quite modest and without the attributes of luxury. This is probably due to the fact that the owner, Jan Otton, was a man of science, art, horticulture and agriculture. He invested in the development of his region, collected books, opposed serfdom and advocated freedom and education for peasants.

In Soviet times, the Bokhvitsey estate was on the balance sheet of the local collective farm. At the end of the 20th century, the club of scientific and technical creativity of veterans began to function here. Now private individuals, Heinrich Tretyak and his wife, are engaged in the estate, who support and restore the old house to the best of their ability, and also conduct excursions for everyone.
