This hanok (traditional Korean House) lies only 500 m away from Andong’s Byeongsanseowon Confucian Academy. Byeongsanseowon Confucian Academy is one of the Confucian academies (Joseon-era places of learning and veneration of Confucian scholars) registered as a UNESCO World Heritage, and is particularly known for its beautiful harmony with the surrounding nature. Songgyehyeon likewise faces the Nakdonggang River to the front, and a 330 m-high mountain to the back, displaying the characteristic harmony of hanok with nature.
The house was named Songgyehyeon by the owner, who wanted to build a house made out of pine trees (“song”). The entire house is offered for rent, which makes it ideal for families and groups. Songgyeheon follows a strictly traditional structure of hanok, as evident in its hipped-and-gable roof, but its interior is equipped with comfortable modern facilities. The house includes both bedrooms and Korean-style ondol (under-the-heating system) rooms. One of the three bedrooms available has a queen-sized bed, while the remaining two are equipped with comfortable mats. The common space, spacious enough to host a group, has a high ceiling dominated by exposed beams. The kitchen is equipped with cooking equipment like refrigerator, gas stove, microwave oven, and utensils for guests to cook their own food. The owner of the house also enthusiastically provides detailed information on Andong’s many tourist sites.
