    Here are the entries from lingvo :
    -отделка - ( земляной литейной формы ) patching, piping, smoothing, trim, ( процесс ) trimmin, refinement, finishing; decorating
    - безрамное остекление
    безрамное - frameless
    остекление - glass cover, cladding glass, glazing
    (безрамная конструкция - frameless construction)
    -стеклопакет - glass pack, glass packet, double-glazed window, double pane unit
    double-glazing [ double-pane ] unit, double glass, manifold plate glass, insulated glazing unit, double glass pane, multiple glass pane, double-glazed [ double-glazing ] window, dual-pane window
    -генподрядчик - general contractor
    -флигель - wing; outbuilding, outhouse (отдельно стоящий )
    Hope the context will help you to choose
    -в 30 минутах езды по(along???)...
    -дом по адресу...
    My suggestions:
    This house is 30 minutes by car (bus or whatever) along the X road.(no prepositions)
    дом по адресу... - house at the address...(but I think the word "address" may be omitted here)
    Native speakers, corrections appreciated.

    Examples:
    If you say, 'в 30 минутах езды по' - I think this would be 'in 30 minutes driving along... (followed by a description of along what!!!)

    Also: Бат - красивый исторический город, расположенный в 90 минутах езды от Лондона
    Bath - The beautiful historical city is 90 minutes drive from London.

    The house is located at the address 110 High Street, London. You can also say, 'The house is located at 110 High Street, London', without the words 'at the address'.

    Ансамбль - Ensemble - works okay here

    Парковый - adj. of Парк - Park or Gardens - I have a garden around my house but a Palace would often have gardens.

    Дворец - Palace

    In English I think that boils down to, 'Palace and garden ensemble' - Try that in Google and you will get a lot of hits which is a sign that you have it right, or at least makes you think you are right when you are in fact completely wrong

    I think it should be at "Савёловский рынок" or some other places where there's a big choice of CD's.
