Brief of Guo s Villa

Guo s Villa is situated by the Sleeping Dragon Bridge (卧龙桥) on Yanggong Causeway, right next to the famous “Breeze-ruffled Lotus at Quyuan Garden (曲院风荷)”. It is a special garden-like villa featuring elegance and quietness. As it is named after a certain Guo Shilin, it is called Guo’s Villa, otherwise known as Fengyang Village (汾阳别墅). Dating back nearly 140 years to the Qing Dynasty, it covers an area of 9,800 square meters.

The villa consists of two sections: the northern section and the southern section. The southern one is a residential section, called Living in Quietness (静必思). It features a pavilion-style house with a courtyard. The house consists of two halls and two wing-rooms, forming a little courtyard with a golden lily pond in the center. Known as a Zhejiang-style quadrangle, it is where the host used to live and receive guests and friends. The house is furnished in the Qing style.

The northern section is a garden section called Sky in the Mirror (一镜天开). In the center of the section is a pond. And a pavilion on water separates the garden villa into the northern section and the southern section. Both sections are always pleasant to the eye both on sunny days and rainy days.
