See several pictures here. Please note that the pink building with white columns is not the original mansion - it was built in the 1950s at the same place.

Views of the stables built in the mid-19th century in the Gothic revival style:

For those of you who are curious as to why the Palace and Estate of Ostashevo are in such horrific condition, you can blame the German tank divisions that came through in mid-December 1941 and laid waste to the entire Ostashevo region.
