Is this home dir connected with an 'administrator' user? It could be 
that ansible is using the wrong user key to connect with what looks like 
'root' on the other machine.

Hopefully its just a matter of which user is being used on which side.

You might also want to take a look at the ansible config file. Mine is 
in /etc/ansible/ansible.cfg which has lines like:

poll_interval  = 15
sudo_user      = root
#ask_sudo_pass = True
#ask_pass      = True
transport      = smart
remote_port    = 22

I think you can be specific about what users are used instead of 
assuming it knows what you really mean. :-)
