Taipei County, Taiwan –
Situated at the intersection of Danshui Township and Sanchih Township, DeAn Residence with hundred years of history is a well-preserved traditional Chinese residence, which the courtyard is surrounded by three buildings. Under the generations’ protection and maintenance, the house still has a red-painted wooden bed from the grandma’s era, kitchen stoves, farming tools, etc. The brick-red DeAn Residence is situated right next to the flower field. Thus, many photographers often come here taking pictures, especially during the flower blossom season.
The current owner of DeAn Residence is a white-haired and vigorous granny who is still able to take a walk every day and chat with visitors. Her hospitality and enthusiasm makes people so hard to believe that she’s already over 100 years old. She has also guarded this old house and the family history for a long while. Because of its widespread fame, DeAn Residence becomes one of the most famous historical residences in Danshui where many dramas were filmed here.
DeAn Residence is full of the beauty and charm of Taiwan’s early architectural features; simple yet elegant. As a reminder, the residence is occupied, so visitors should not disturb the lives of others out of courtesy.
