THE HOUSE

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.

FEATURES

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.
