Lee Teng-fan’s Ancient Residence (李騰芳古宅)
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.

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.
值得一去的古宅可以了解近百年前，的有錢人生活形態，跟現代人住帝寶的差別～很有趣 而且地圖解說淸楚，從中國人講求的風水上，設計馬背的金形丶水形丶火形丶土形， 為什麼沒有木形，因為主人叫姓〈李〉。另外還有可愛的倒吊獅，夾...
