Reputed to be the model for the mansion in Cáo Xuěqín’s 18th-century classic Dream of the Red Mansions, this historic courtyard home is one of Běijīng’s largest private residential compounds. It remains one of the capital’s more attractive retreats, decorated with rockeries, plants, pools, pavilions and elaborately carved gateways, although it can get very crowded with tour groups.
