The national historic landmark, Lee Teng-fan’s Ancient Residence, is a signature building that is refined and magnificent. After the middle of the Qing dynasty, Taiwanese generally expanded their houses if the social status of their family was enhanced so as to bring honor to the family name. Lee Teng-fan’s Ancient Residence is the best example of the house expansion trend back then.

The residence is delicate, elegant, and spacious with all the quintessential traditional elements. It is also the only national historic landmark in Taoyuan City. A typical Zhaoan Hakka building, the big wooden structure of the vestibule and main hall is the most exquisite part of the woodworks of the building. Since Lee Teng-fan was good at calligraphy and painting, there are many calligraphy works and paintings adorning the indoor area.

    Fascinating Glimpse Into Taiwan's Past

    Traveler rating:4 2014-03

    We visited the Li Teng-fang historical residence in Daxi, which is in Taoyuan County outside of Taipei. It is located a short drive outside of town, set amidst rice fields. The house, which is in nice condition considering its age, shows you how the upper-middle class lived in the late 1800's. The house itself was built around 1860 by the son of a wealthy merchant. He later went on to a high-ranking position in government. The house is laid out so that the household workers lived in the outermost portions; the family itself lived in the center most part. Besides the architecture and construction which I found very interesting, the home still has the original wood-burning stove, kitchen items, some artwork, and other items showing you how a well-off family lived so long ago. I found the rain-water collection system fascinating, as well as a network of mini-canals around the court yard to keep the court yard areas from flooding during heavy rain. There are no facilities of any sort here (rest rooms, food stands, etc). Just a nice, quiet place to look into Taiwan's cultural past.
