|This is the old house of Lee Man-hyeon, also known by his pen name Chiam. He served as a town chief and
a high-ranking court official during the reign of King Gojong of the Joseon Dynasty. He is also the 11th generation descendant
of the great scholar Lee Hwang, also known as Toegye.
The hanok was designated as the 11th Folk Relic of Gyeongsangbuk-do. It was originally located in Dosan-myeon Wonchon-ri, but moved to the current location as the original site was flooded due to the construction of the Andong Dam in 1976. The house is composed of a square-shaped, tile-roofed main building that measures 22 kans*, a 5-kan lofty front gate, and outer quarters. The main building consists of the anchae (women's quarters) and the elevated sarangchae (men's quarters). The roof of the sarangchae has a peculiar shape, as it is sloped and has gabled roofs on each side.
*kan: a traditional measurement that corresponds to the space between two columns
