1930’s – Callac, Côtes-d’Armor, Brittany, France

Listing Description

"The house was custom built for the Auregan family between 1932-34. Monsieur Auregan was a bailiff and used the annex part of the house for his business; the two upper rooms were the maids quarters. Clients came in the side entrance and up one flight of stairs to the waiting room. Today, the former waiting room has been converted into a downstairs bathroom/utility room; the office remains in its original condition, complete with the built-in closets. The oil central heating was installed in the 1987. The current owners have renovated this property to a very high standard.

No expense was spared when this property was built; the craftsmanship is superb. All the original 1930s architectural features remain in place: the wrought iron and marble hallstand with its oak framed mirror; the variegated Italian marble mantelpiece in the dining room; the oak panelled wall, fireplace and built-in cupboards in the living room; the oak staircase with its beautifully carved Newel post and brass stair rods, and the oak spiral staircase in the annex. There are 3 sets of double French doors in the hallway, and a double set dividing the dining and living rooms. These features along with the high ceilings and solid oak floors all help retain the homes original qualities.

An additional advantage is it is equipped with a high speed internet connection, satellite dish, UK TV channels, and excellent mobile phone reception – making the home especially ideal for home based work.

    From my understanding a home owner can hire multiple agencies to market their home. So sometimes you’ll find different sets of photos and even prices between different agencies.

    The owners have done such a nice job, such a stately but comfortable home!

      Exactly (regarding several agents). Differences of prices may come from 2 factors :

      – same price for the house but agents apply a different rate for their fees
      – the owner decided to change the asking price but forgot to inform some of the agents in charge.

      Beautiful stately house. I always love French marble fireplaces.

    I completely adore this beautiful gothic/storybook looking home. Every room is so beautiful, the only thing missing is real closets. I would like to see more of the kitchen and the basement, but this is one of my favorite homes so far and for a very good price. Brittany is an area in France that has a lot medieval buildings and villages. I would love to live there.
