Tai Fu Tai was built around 1865 as the residence of local official Man Chung-luen. It's a typical village mansion of the scholar-gentry class. The Man clan has settled in San Tin since the 15th century and are a powerful family clan in the New Territories. Since Hong Kong was ceded to Britain in 1839, the Man clan has also increasingly sent their male heirs overseas for educaton. As such, the Tai Fu Tai Manion very interestingly incorporated some Western archiectural details when it was built and decorated.
