Modern Mansion In Moscow’s Mayendorf Gardens

This jaw dropping private home and separate spa pavilion with interior design by Magni Kalman Design and architecture by Mossine Partners is located in the in very exclusive Mayendorf Gardens village of Moscow.

The Mayendorf (or Meiendorf) Village is a subdivision in the exclusive and secretive Rublevka community that is home to several Forbes millionaires, State Duma deputies, and high-ranking public officials. The area is right near to the Novo-Ogaryovo residence – the residence, which Russian President Vladimir Putin often uses for private receptions.

From the front the large rectangular home looks very industrial with a wooden clad entrance smack in the center and large glass walls with louvers.

The ground floor (which is more like an underground floor) consists of a beautiful slate swimming pool, spa and entertainment area with glass walls that look out onto the grassy yard. It is not visible from the front of the home.
