street) or Da Yin (silver street) and a Shang Heng Jie, etc.

Our house is a classical Min-Style house compound. For the restoration of this

historical house, we tried our best to keep and restored it authentically. You could

appreciate old time material world with original red-brick roof top, patio, old glass

windows, structures and aura inside.
