The residence of the British Consulate is a two-story western house built by a British in 1891. On the exterior wall, the "VR 1891" brick-carved pattern and vase-shaped rails were exquisitely created. The kind of foreign houses built in the 19th century during the colonial period by the British in the trading area of East Asia and South Pacific is generally called "Colonial-type architecture." The south gate is the gateway to the outdoors and was built with Guanyi Rocks. Ahead of the western house, a lawn is one of its distinctive features. With the main two-story body with the design of brick-built corridor is the popular "Bangalow" type structure that can be found in British colonies. It's a western house built in the style of the Victorian-period.
