In a valley facing Mt. Obong, along the oceanside
there are many houses, and in the middle of the village there is
a pond. Entering the alley of a trifoliate orange tree fence east
of the pond, there are gated sleeping quarters facing east and storage
with no door facing south. Entering the gate, there is a yard and
north of the yard there is main living room facing south, and west
of the yard there is a small storage, and south of the yard there
is a big storage.
It is guessed that the main living room was built
around 1900. 광채 in the opposite side is more recent, and everything
else was built in the early 20th century.
There are wings in the back of main living room
in the shape of a horseshoe. From the west there is a kitchen, the
main bedroom, 2 main floored rooms, and at the end there is the
small bedroom. In the front, a porch was made, however, in front
of kitchen a small storage was built, and to the southeast a study
room was made. Between the main floored room and a wooden floor
there is a door, and in between the upper and lower rooms of the
small bedroom there is also a door.
It is likely that the small bedroom was used as
a study room for a scholar or a guest room. This is common use of
space in the southern part of Korea.
Storage is a house which was built in the lower
part of the land with 'ㅡ' shape on the opposite side of main living
room, and it was intentionally built low so it would not interfere
with the great view from main living room. West of it is a small
storage, and the rest is a wooden floor. Gated sleeping quarters
was built with barn in the north, and gated sleeping quarters south
of the door in the middle.
It is the most beautiful in Ganggol village and
located in the middle of the village.
It is structured with two high pillars and five
units. It is built on square beams that are supported by purlin-supporters
and has crossbeams beneath each beam. The columns are also
square on square foundation stones. The stylobates have two-leveled
natural stones. The roof has gables on both sides and a gable
wall on the rear wing.
The storage building across is a five-unit single-row
building. This building is constructed low on a lower land
to not interfere with the good views from the main living room.
