I saw it last springtime, it was okay. The only parts burned were a wing and some work areas. It should be open after the restoration is complete this summer. If not already.
 Sorry the picture is so large, I tried to resize, does not seem to have worked !

Had any floorplan of the Farm been posted? :-\

This is a floorplan of the ground-floor made by Shtakenschneider just before an engraving of the Alexander II rooms to the Farm.

Svetabel,

Thanks so much for the Farm floorplan.  Did your source have any key to the room numbers?  It would be wonderful if we knew what the rooms were intended for.  Thanks for your postings!

Oh, Bob, I wish I had a key :( Only the floorplan...

Can anyone find a key and post it?  It would be wonderful to know which rooms were which.

The last photo of the farm posted here was in 2005.  Does anyone have an update on repairs/restoration, new photos, information on when it might be open for visitors? The Peterhof website treats the farm as if it never existed!

Too many threads to keep track of here!  I found my answer about the current state of the Alexandria Park farm under "St. Petersburg
country residences".

While reading Prince Michael of Greece book, Jewels of the tsars, he writes of Ferme at Peterhof. Ferme was built for Nicholas I and his tsarina, and was a favourite home.

I have been unable to find out anything about this royal residence.
Can anyone help with information, photos etc. Many thanks

Ther are 3 "cottages" in Alexandria Park at Peterhof.. One is the Farm, and was a childhood favourite of  Nicholas' family. Recently restored. Another the Cottage.  Preserved but rarely visited.
 Nichalas'  personal favourite, which he had built, is the Lower Dacha. Destroyed. Only ruins are left, but there are ideas to rebuild it. Collectively, they were all called "the Farm"
 Here are pictures of 2 of them. I could not find the 3rd, although I have it here somewhere!

The third is the "Cottage".  There is a topic on it (with pictures) that can be found at:
