Originally all one-storied houses with mezzanines were equal, built in the Baroque style, they were joined with fences from Sadovaya Street and painted in the colour of the same with facades of the Catherine Palace. In 1784 I.V. Neyelov enlarged mezzanines, transformed them in the low second floor. In 1817 small front gardens were laid out in front of houses. The marshal’s house (6 Sadovaya Street) was rebuilt and doubled, in the middle of the 19th century the Tsarskoye Selo superintendent of Palace buildings lived here. The Study house (10 Sadovaya Street) was occupied by the office of the Governor of Tsarskoye Selo, Peterhof and Gatchina over a some period in the early 19th century, in the middle of the 19th century noncommissioned - Masters of the Horse lived here.
