The "ŁOMNICA" villa is one of the most mysterious villas in Lviv, built at the beginning of the 20th century in the style of romantic historicism. It has been the subject of unsuccessful legal battles involving dozens of agencies and interested parties due to its fragmented ownership. Now, after lengthy negotiations and legal procedures, the villa has finally regained its integrity as a real estate object and is seeking a new owner.

The "ŁOMNICA" villa is one of the most enigmatic villas in Lviv, built at the beginning of the 20th century in the style of romantic historicism. It is situated on the historic "Vulka" plot in the then-elite suburban building zone, which was established in the 17th century above the Vuletsky Stream. Its restoration and revitalization could mark the beginning of the revival of the historical character and status of the entire area!

This architectural gem was constructed in 1910-1911 according to the stamp of the authoritative builder and architect Karol Turkowski, commissioned jointly by the future well-known architects and builders Jan Pfeiffer and Stanisław Rewucki. In 1927-1929, it was reconstructed by the architectural bureau "Stanisław Rewucki and Władysław Derdacki" for the potential future residence of the three sons of Rewucki. As a result, the villa received three separate entrances and three independently planned apartments, as well as the ability to autonomously use three levels of the object and a huge basement on the ground floor level in particular.

 

 

The villa stands tall as the main architectural landmark on a steep slope, perfectly integrated into the local relief, where there used to be a vast fruit orchard, and today, almost a historical park hidden from human eyes, with dozens of long-standing trees.

 

 

Hence, it derived its name, according to one version, from the inspiration of the Lomnicky Shield—the second-highest peak in the High Tatras in Slovakia, originating from the Lomnica stream, which flows at the bottom of the Lomnica Valley. According to another version, the villa's name comes from the river Limnitsa (Lomnitsa, Lomnica, Łomnica), which flows within the Kalush and Ivano-Frankivsk districts of the Ivano-Frankivsk region and is a right tributary of the Dniester. At the beginning of the 20th century, the name "Lomnitsa" was also widespread among villas and estate houses in Zakopane, where active residential development was also taking place at that time.
