The house has 5 compartments with 2 roofs, built according to French architecture. Although nearly 150 years have passed, the architecture of the house is still quite intact, hidden deep compared to modern high-rise houses today. This place is also known as Binh Thuy orchid garden, the reason for such name is due to the fifth descendant of the Duong family - Mr. Duong Van Ngon loves playing ornamental flowers and cacti. Mr. Ngon organized an orchid festival and welcomed tourists to visit the old house in the 1980s, creating a rewarding playground for those who share the same passion for playing flowers and writing poems. Many poetry talks of poets in the Cam Thi country took place here, so this place is also known as Tao Dan Nam Ngon or Tao Dam Mr. Ngon (Poetic forum of Mr. Ngon).

The current house is still inherited and preserved by the sixth descendant of the Duong family - Mr. Duong Minh Hien. In front of the yard, it still retains rockery, orchids and many other ornamental flowers in four seasons. On the right in front of the house, the Mexican prismatic cactus is 10m high, 40 years old.
