Znamenskoe belonged to Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaevich (the elder) and is located, I believe, to the east of Peterhof.  Mikhailovskoe belonged to Grand Duke Mikhail Nikolaevich and is located to the west of Peterhof.  Not much of either is left.  Not sure where Grushevka is.

Both Znamenka and Mikhailovka are refurbished and used as suburban hotels / resorts.
Grushevka, which belonged to GD Nikolay Mikhailovich, is in the Ukraine near Nikopol (Dnepropetrovsk - former Ekaterinoslav - region), and is now called Pokrovka.

Znamenka was eventually owned by Grand Duke Peter Nicholaevitch and Militsa.  Nicholas and Alexander often met Rasputin there.
There is also a Novo-Zamenka on the Peterfof road wh

The finery of the interiors was being preserved till 1919, and in 1941 the Palace was destroyed and reconstructed in the 1960s.
The Palace is two-storied, the Main rooms were on the ground floor, the Private appartments were on the 1st floor.It's interesting that GD Nikolay Mikhailovich (eldest son the GD Mikhail ) had the most of own rooms on the 1st floor while his brothers GD Mikhail Mikhailovich had only 2 rooms (Reception room and Bedroom), GD Georgiy Mikhailovich had 5 rooms, GD Alexey Mikhailovich (who died young) had 5 rooms and the famous Sandro aka GD Alexander Mikhailovich had only 1 room (Bedroom) as he was a rare guest at home.

I have a floorplan of the ground floor, if someone would like to see it, I'll post. :)

Did GD Serge Michailovich have no rooms at all?
