Úri utca 58 (I.)
Nepomuki Szent János és Xavéri Szent Ferenc
Saint John of Nepomuk and Saint Francis Xaver
Two statues of in niches above the entrance gate:
(Nepomuk c. 1345 - Praha 1393), confessor of the queen of Bohemia, refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. At the behest of King Wenceslaus of Bohemia he was thrown from the Charles Bridge in Prague and drowned. John of Nepomuk is patron saint of bridges (Wikipedia)
(1506-1552), pioneering Roman Catholic missionary, co-founder of the Society of Jesus
It is also possible the left figure is St. Charles Borromeo.
Peculiar is that both saints have a halo with seven stars. The only saint (except St. Mary) to have a halo with stars is Saint John of Nepomuk, who has five stars in his halo.
The mansion was built in 1720 by the Hadik family.
