YUSUPOV'S HUNTING HOUSE "KOKKOZ" (BLUE EYE)
[ ] 10.12.2010, 00:12

  
  On April 1908 Felix Yusupov (Elder) bought an estate in little Crimean Tatar village Kokkozy.  On 1910 famouse Yalta architect Nikholas Krasnow finished here a small "local stile" palace, accordangly of desire of wife of F.Yusupov - Zinadida Yusupova. It became,  like a huge mountain Ai-Petry with hundreds of thousands hectars of the land, a present to her from husband.
   This was once Zinaide Yusupov’s palace. When in 1914 her son Felix (Yusupov Yanger) married with a niece of Zar Nikholas II Irina Romanova, this hunter house became a present to daugter-in-law from Yusupov`s family.
   It’s decoration was based on the Khan’s palace, with the symbol of a blue eye running through the decoration. One window was in the shape of an eye, and once contained stained glass.
 

 ...What’s left - the main building and a guest house.  Little to see of the "former paradise” that Agnes de Stoeckl described...
