That is beautiful. How much of it is authentic?

It is far from being among "the most remarkable French houses" but it is without any doubt among the most remarkable Landernean houses

Maison de la Sénéchaussée, 17th century [1664], Landerneau, Brittany :



Also nicknamed Maison de la Duchesse Anne by locals (because the duchess Anne of Brittany is said to have slept in the house one night ... which would be curious considering the fact that she died 150 years before the construction ... but imho it was more an excuse for Bretons to name the most stuff possible after the very beloved last ruler of an independant Brittany ), the Maison de la Sénéchaussée is built on the market square (place du marché, officially place du Général de Gaulle but I've never heard anyone one call it that way) which occupies the site of the old castle of Landerneau demolished at the beginning of the 17th century.
On this square stood the halles (market) where the senechaussée (bailiwick) sat on the ground floor. The senechaussée gave its name to the house when it moved there after its construction in 1664.




On the East side, the façade is made of Logonna stone (stone extracted in the nearby village of Logonna) and is a mix of Medieval and Renaissance styles. It includes en engaged turret crowned with a pepper-pot and rested on a cul-de-lampe. The two Louis XIII dormer windows are surmounted by 3 stylized pots à feu. A statue of the Christ in kersantite stone (an unique stone found in Brittany that has been used for Breton Christian sculpture) sits in a niche.






On the North side, the wood pans are covered with slates.



Details of the façade :





The pinion :




The house is currently being heavily renovated by its private owners, it will host a salon de thé and a reception area. They seem to be very attentive to respect the original conception, they use the same stones (although from an other quarry), the same slates and they will keep all the visible beams inside the house (one of them displays the motto of the Rohan family who owned the former castle and built the inhabited bridge of the city). The workers on the site are accustomed to historical monuments.

A video about the renovation if you can read some French because they all speak Breton :
