🏘#59 🏅59%  REJECT • €145k • industrial • town • 2300m² complex • Despite being a bit higher in the valley it is surrounded by allotments, trees and scrubland, except for a car workshop next door. The stream runs around the property. It would be possible to harvest the water for small scale hydro or at least a water feature and pool in the stream.

Notes ✧ ✅ fibre
✦ would demolish small building to open up acess to stream
✦ no usable land but surrounded by allotments, so could probably acquire one thus garden score increased (perhaps on opposite side of stream which is overgrown and has a very productive water source)
✦ two courtyards
✦ limited sun in winter and because it is more enclosed, colder than #53
✦ Apparently the plot is 5,000m2 plot but very steep so only suitable for limited decking no other uses.
✦ requires 650m2 of new roofing
✦ stream is suitable and permitted small scale hydro in winter
✦ can be very hot although buildings remain cool and is cooler in the valley, down season might be split betwen winter
✦ a couple of tracks a short walk away, however most activities involve a quick trip, e.g. 20–40 mins bike/car
✦ local town of Guarda is on Mardrid-Lisbon night train line but not useful; new services may be introduced
✦ town has a datacentre and fibre networks are being rolled out
✦ 51
