The Old House of Ljubiša T. Janković in Leskovac was built in mid  XIX century. It is located outside the village center on the left road side Petrovac – Žagubica.

It is designed as a ground floor object with a cellar and protruding porch. By its characteristics it belongs to a rich Morava house type. Its base is of Cyrilic letter ”G” shape, dimensions 9,70 Х 7,00m. It was built in half – timbered construction, with intertwined twigs as a composite, plastered with mud and whitewashed. The roof is four – sloped and covered with tile. The west, main facade features with protruding porch and pseudo Morava arches, closed with parapet. On its south side there is an entrance with wooden staircase.

By its size and spatial functional organization it belongs to a rich house type. Spatially it is divided into a central room, a so called “house”, a big and small room, a porch and a cellar beneath it, built of crushed stone and mud.

 Valuable objects of material culture used to be kept in this house and these were: a wooden waterwheel, benches, coat hangers, furnace in place of an old fire place in”the house”, carriages and gigs. The house was disassembled in 2006 and made ready for relocation into an ethno park at Tulba, Požarevac.
