The museum staff said they discovered the house in mountainous Huong Son Commune, Huong Khe District during a recent investigative trip.

The house is in good condition with all original structures intact, from the gate to the main building. The gate, built with laterite bricks, has complicated carvings on it.

The main building includes three sections of a wooden frame that are similar to the nha ruong (wooden house with many beams and pillars) found in Hue. Traditional carvings of birds and flora were also found on the wooden beams.

The house's roof is covered by the yin-yang earthen tiles and its walls are made of unbaked clay.
