    Introduction

    Built between 1919 and 1921, the Seon Byeong-guk house’s unique architectural style uses dimensions greater than those of traditional houses. The house is divided into three sections: an inner house, a separate house, and a shrine. They are surrounded by two walls: an inner wall and an outer wall. The house lies in the middle of Samgacheon Stream which flows from Sokni Mountain. This design resembles a lotus flower floating on water, which symbolizes fertility, prosperity, and longevity for the generations of dwellers. The house is also surrounded by lush pine trees.

    * Information on the House
    The descendants of Seon Byeong-guk still occupy and manage the house. A separate structure is used as a tea house, while the inner house offers rooms for students. As the house is still a private home, visitors are asked to be courteous and maintain the privacy of the residents.
