Russian country house resembled a château, in part (5)


I believe the answer is:


'russian country house' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'resembled a chateau in part' is the wordplay.
'in part' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'DACHA' is hidden within 'resembled a chateau'.

(Other definitions for dacha that I've seen before include "Second home in the country for Muscovites?" , "Russian second home" , "property overseas" , "Russian holiday cottage" , "Country home in Russia" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
