"Шульц будинок", Новоград-Волинський

What does this term "Schultz house" mean? I found it in an online narrative about a city where my ancestors once lived:

I have been trying my best, with my next to non-existent knowledge of Ukrainian and Google Translator, but it seems to make no sense to me.

Does "Schultz House" refer to the family who lived there? Or is it some type of general slang term for something speakers of Ukrainian would understand automatically? Maybe like the way English speakers say "peeler" to refer to a policeman, alluding to Sir Robert Peel, founder of a professional police force in Britain? Maybe "Schultz house" means "brothel" or some such?

From what I gather, this house was near to a residence of a Count Uvarov, who I believe owned several of the properties where my ancestors subsequently lived.
