The house of the estate manager was built in the Art Nouveau style in Neskuchne Park on the outskirts of Trostianets. The two-story building of asymmetrical composition with a tower in its eastern part was perfectly integrated into the picturesque environment. The house was inhabited by the family of Julius Koenig, forestry manager and the last owner of Trostianets, the son of one of the richest businessmen in the Russian Empire, the ethnic German sugar producer Leopold Koenig. Neskuchne Arboretum is a 256-hectare monument of landscape art and is one of the oldest plantations of oak, ash, and linden trees in Ukraine with specimens up to 250 years old.

During the Second World War, from 1941 to 1943, Trostianets was occupied by German troops and suffered significant damage. In the early 1950s, war-damaged facilities were rebuilt, including the Neskuchne estate manager’s house, which was blown up in 1943.

On March 27, 2022, retreating from Trostianets in the Sumy region, Russian troops burned a unique architectural monument of national importance—the house of the estate manager Leopold Koenig built in 1911. As a result of the direct tank attack and fire, the facades of the house were significantly damaged, the roof and ceilings were ruined, the interiors were destroyed, and the windows were broken. Now the building needs a detailed examination for the possibility of restoration.
