Formerly Anping Chen Lai Residence(原安平陳保正厝)




Anping Chen Lai Residence has been erected in Yanping Street in the Qing dynasty. It was the residence of geomancer Ji-yun CHEN dispatched from Fujian in late Qing dynasty when he was a civil affair attendant during Japanese colonization. The building is a typical three-row street house. Part of the front row was demolished during the expansion of Yanping Street, only the second half of the front row, the middle and the rear rows survive. Inside the house there are mezzanine and coral-stone partition walls. Between the middle and the rear rows stands a red-brick screen wall of about 4m tall and 1.5m wide with the eight trigrams and inscription “Baoji” on the surface. Above is the sun, the moon, and cloud decorations, and around there are bat ornaments. They are the most striking features of the building.
