Skole, Ukraine Archive? #ukraine

My ancestral cousin, Baron Herman Groedel, owned a villa (and large sawmill and property) in Skole (Demnia), purchased in 1886 from Count Eugeniuz Kinski. Baron Groedel then enlarged the property significantly. I would like to find any records of ownership, transfer, bill of sale, architectural documents, or any other official document related to the villa. Over the years I have come across several stories about the purchase of the property; including that it was purchased by Hermann's brother, Albert, and a business partner, Adam Schmidt, and later transferred to their business (Groedel Brothers). Can anyone advise as to where I might find the official documents for the villa? 

Thank you!
