This Baroque-style garden residence built in 1923 is the most stunning building along the road. It places emphasis on symmetry, proportion and geometry. It is extravagant, seeking to flaunt wealth and astonish the viewer. The decorative carvings are intricate and rich with carved geometric designs, floral motifs, and stone pots, characteristic of the Baroque style. It is said the original owner was a British Jewish merchant who became extremely wealthy in Shanghai and built this luxurious residence in a quiet location at the intersection of Yanqing and Huating roads. The building is now used by Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital.
