According to Zhu Wenqi (the eldest daughter of Zhu Hengqing), her father invested 600 tons of steel to be the framework of this house, which fairly shows its firmness.The main building is on the south, the kitchen on the west, and the garage on the north. There are three rooms in the east, middle, and west on the ground floor of the main building, separated by sliding doors. There is a big garden and two tennis courts outside the house. Inside the garden, there is a lawn, several camphor trees in the middle, and Buxus sinica trees and hollies on both sides, which looks quite elegant.After liberation, the building was used as a motorcycle barrack the armed police of Shanghai, and was returned to the original owner in 1982.
