It is believed to have been constructed at the beginning of the 19th century, as a two-part Kosovo-type single-story house, with a horizontal porch on the long side linking separate, mutually unconnected rooms.Supposedly, in the middle of the same century, it endured certain changes that gave it the present appearance of a Grocka town house. At that time, a terrace (doksat) and an underground basement as wide as the terrace were added on its shorter side, with an entrance to the basement made under the terrace. In this case, the usually established direct connection between the added room and the porch was left out, and the entry from the porch into the existing room was closed. The terrace, as an integral part of the porch in this type of houses, was separately shaped as an independent element. The house was built by applying the bondruk type of construction (half-timber work) with straw filling (čatma) and covered with roof tiles (ćeramida). The interiorhas a four-part design and the middle room with the fireplace (odžaklija) is directly linked to the porch. The added spatial structure and dimensions indicate one of the ways of creating traditional houses inPomoravlje and Eastern Serbia.The fact that it was built in a marketplace (čaršija) reflects the spirit and economic drive of the emerging class of citizens in Serbia. Conservation and restoration were undertaken in the 1980s, and restoration and organization in 2003/2004.
