The House of Tan Yeok Nee was built in 1882-85 as a family home by Tan Yeok Nee, a gambier merchant from Chaozhou, China. When he first arrived in Singapore, he made a living as a cloth pedlar.

However, he later established himself as a successful gambier and pepper planter in Johor, Malaya, and began trading in these commodities.

The house is one of the two surviving examples of traditional Chinese mansions in Singapore, the other being River House in Clarke Quay. 

The House of Tan Yeok Nee is a Teochew-style
residential building with two main courtyards. lts intricate roof is decorated with wooden carvings, painted plaster reliefs, and colourful porcelain pieces.

Tan Yeok Nee later sold the house  and returned to China. During  this time, the Singapore-Kranji   
railway line was being built and the house was acquired by the station master of the nearby Tank Road Railway Station.
