Ho-Am Byung-chull Lee's great grandfather built a traditional Korean compound himself on 1,907㎡ of land in 1851. This is where Ho-Am Byung-chull Lee was born, grew up and lived until moving out upon marriage. The birthplace is a straight, graceful traditional building on flat land and facing the southwest. Successive additions and remodelings over the decades produced today's highly sophisticated and elegant structure.
The compound is composed of a main gate and gatehouse, the men's quarters, the women's quarters, and a storeroom. The entire compound is surrounded by a refined traditional wall composed of earth, stone and a tiled top. The surrounding trees and woods add a wonderfully natural scenic air to the setting. The site is a highly auspicious one in terms of geomantic principles that consider the flow of energy from the surrounding hills and the slowly flowing Nam River.
