What people are saying:

On No. 19 Road in the British Concession (now No. 211, Hebei Road, Heping District), it was built in 1922 and has two courtyards. The front yard is built with a two-story basement main building with a combination of Chinese and Western styles, with a brick-wood structure and high steps; in the backyard, three two-story small western-style buildings are built, and a flower wall is built side by side to separate the front and rear yards. The right side of the three small buildings is the Young Master Building; the left side is the Miss Building; the middle is the guest building. Two small strip-shaped buildings with basements are built against the courtyard walls on both sides, which are housing for male and female servants. There is a basement with a water prison (male prison) and a dry prison (female prison). The whole house has 78 buildings and 27 cottages, with a construction area of 2,370 square meters. The former residence of Cao Kun was named "Guangyuan". In 1916, Cao Kun was appointed as the superintendent of Zhili Province, and the former Zhili Bureau of Prisons was converted into a hotel.
