    Odd spot in Taipei's landscape


    The Story House, also known as Yuan Shan Villa, is built to a Japanese design in mock Tudor style. It's a half timbered structure, the bottom half is built of brick. The entrance is flanked by four Ionic columns. The upper half has copper roofing and a brick chimney, with narrow windows and a steep roof. It is also known as the "Tea House," as it was built by a tea merchant in the Japanese colonial era.. This much-loved fancy appears to be closed to the public, it's a pity as it was entertaining.

    Historical Building


    Free entrance, good pick if you already survey in the area. However there are many interesting places in the same area

    Quirky building


    Taipei Story House is an historical house that bears a great resemblemce to a Swiss Chalet. It is located near a busy road and the Zhongshan Bridge. The house houses a variety of exhibits.

    The Taipei Story Houses is currently undergoing renovations. It's unclear when they will be finished.You can look from the outside, it's quaint and one of Taipei's best-loved buildings. It's next to the Fine Arts Museum; the is an underpass under Chung Shan North Road that goes to the Story House.

    Isolated from Urban freeways ...


    First off, this isn't a very easy attraction to get to. There's a huge road and freeway that sort of isolate it from any pedestrian or bike friendly path. It's right next to the Fine Art Museum, and I would advise spending all the time your time there, and if you have any time left over, take a couple minutes and bop over to the Story House. Even though much of the architecture in Taipei is ugly and God-awful, for some reason the Story House didn't engage us,either, with its European look. There's so much to see in this sprawling city, you can take this one off your list.
