check if remote directory exists via ssh

I use python libraries to check if dir exists or not during the automation to make sure my script will create the dir i want is not present locally. But what if i want to do the same thing remotely.

I found few posts showing the same stuff with paramiko's sftp and other ways. I'm ok with paramiko but i have to install it via pip install, i can't simple use paramiko library with out install like any other standard library. So i liked ssh way.

I use 'test' command remotely, let's see 

if (sudo ssh -i /home/downloads/server.pem ubuntu@ -o "StrictHostKeyChecking no"  'test -d /home/ubuntu/test_dir');                     
    echo 'yes' 
which is working fine.
