As a mansion, the building was used by Georgios Skouzes family, Don Guido Canti Bolognetti (the Prince of Vukovar), Mr. Georgios Frangopoulos, Mr. Athanasios Andritsakis and Mr. Eleftherios Venizelos, former Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic.

Having constructed in 1926, the building has the neo-classic Greek architecture style. It is made of stone masonry and consists of 3 floors.
