Chen Tian-Lai's Residence 陳天來故居

Anchor point

Introduction

Gui’de Street symbolizes tea-enabled wealth and boom in Dadaocheng, which was among Taiwan’s most prosperous regions in the early days. As one of the many businessmen who earned enviable amounts of fortune in the country’s tea business, Chen Tian-lai founded Jinji Tea Co. and reinvested his profits in the entertainment industry, such as theaters. The current Chen Tian-lai Residence at No. 73, Gui’de Street used to house the former Jinji Tea Co. This three-story Baroque structure was completed in 1920 with the first floor dedicated to tea trading, the second floor serving as a guesthouse for tea-traders, and the third floor as private residence. The main structure of this imposing European-style house, flanked by guard towers on both sides, as well as classic colonnade and arched hallway, is adorned with baroque details as festoons and balconies. This historic residence used to be a renowned tea party spot in Dadaocheng, where tea-traders met regularly at the guesthouse to enjoy the view at the Tamsui Wharf in the distance. Behind the Residence, a private garden adjacent to Gang-zi Ditch (the present-day Xining North Road) bears testimony to the heyday of Dadaocheng in the first half of the 20th century.

    陳Tianlaiの旧住居(Kam Kee Tea Company)

    2018-06

    Chen TianlaiはJinji Tea Companyを設立し、蓬莱館、First Theater、Yongle Blockなどのエンターテイメント事業に投資しました。 73 Guide StreetにあるChen Tianlaiの旧邸宅に位置していた旧「Kam Kee Tea House」.3階建ての建物のような建物です。

    西式的洋樓

    2017-05

    是景區推介的景點之一, 由於景區景點分散, 所以洋樓也不算是太好找, 但到附近後便可看到洋樓的氣派, 雖然其歷史不太清楚. 但按景點小册子所說, 這裡以前是過世的茶葉大亨陳天來, 所以這裡又名為錦記茶行, 可惜不能入內參觀.

    昔日華麗的洋樓

    2017-01

    隱身在現代民宅之列中,它顯得低調華麗!洋樓外觀,仿巴洛克式的雕塑裝飾,也可以從架高的基底看出從前應該很容易淹水。希望難得的古蹟可以好好被保存下來,不要又因為都更而消失了。

    氣派的大豪宅

    2016-12

    陳天來乃清朝時期知名商人,專營茶葉相關生意,致富後在此建造氣派豪宅。此宅採用巴洛克風格打造,二樓有超大露臺,面對淡水河岸,在古時堪稱河景第一排。望著這棟大宅,遙想過往大稻埕風華,令人不勝唏噓。可惜無法入內參觀。
