The most representative house is Shanju Room which hadn’t been completed yet even after nearly 50 years’ construction. The architectural style of this building combines the features of the west and the east. The western-style buildings, which are built with the traditional Chinese features, are interspersed by halls and pavilions. The propylaea and crossovers twist and turn inside the building. Up to now, the patterns on the stone carvings and woodcarvings are still exquisite and new. The glazed roof tiles and the clay sculptures are elegant and magnificent. The building is just like a labyrinth, which will make you linger on without any thought of leaving.

This building is praised as the "No. 1 Returned Overseas Chinese Residence of Lingnan" and “the Grand Park in south China”. It is the provincial-level cultural relic preservation site of Guangdong Province. In 2006, it is selected to be one of the eight famous scenic spots in Shantou and people give it an elegant name: Hongyuan Huifeng.
