In the midst of Hangzhou, behind thick stone walls is the former of residence of this successful 19th Century businessman. The exterior belies the beautiful gardens and rich rooms and furnishings in the residence. The house itself is divided into several large compounds -- one for Mr. Hu, one for his wife, one for his Mother and one for his concubines. Mom definitely had nice accommodations and in fact in one room in the entry, you will see two hand carriages, one for Mr. Hu and one for his Mother. Take your time as you move through the house to appreciate the detail, carving and metal works. The garden is lovely with carp filled ponds and pretty plantings.
