Buildings of 19th century

Recently restored mansion of end of 18th century at 18, Malaya Dmitrovka street, in the center of the city.
I could not find much info about this beauty (Wiki helps, as usual).
Belonged to A. Saimonov, who had significant position in the court.  His son was a friend of A.Pushkin, Russian poet, his nephew was a member of Decembrists secret society and the Decembrists' meetings were possibly held here.
Since 1976 the building is included in the list of State architectural monuments.
