Baek In-je House is a museum and cultural heritage site located in Bukchon Hanok Village's Gahoe-dong neighborhood. The house was built during the Japanese colonial era and it is a well-preserved example of modern hanok. The hanok was built on an elevated plot of land and there are incredible views of Bukchon Hanok Village from the house. Though built in a traditional style, there are many modern architectural touches. In traditional hanok, the sarangchae (men's quarters) and anchae (women's quarters), are built separate from each other. Baek In-je House has a sarangchae and anchae that are connected. There is also a spacious garden. The hanok is one of the largest remaining hanok in the city, and because of its unique history, the hanok was designated a Citizens' Cultural Heritage site and converted into a museum.
