Environment ✧ rolling agricultural between base of mountains and plains; walks along river and hill trails

Services ✧ all on doorstep

Access ✧ station 15mins walk: Toulouse 1h15 (last 8:30pm), Paris 5h30 or overnight; airports: Tarbes 1h transit, Toulouse 1h30

Notes ✧ one of the last buildings in the town above the river with a view of the hills; the town is pleasant with a colonaded square and indoor market, if a bit rundown
✦ built into a steep hill just below a bend on the sometimes a bit busy road into the little town
✦ yet atop great quiet countryside with lake for strolling around (also has a beach and volleyball court), gentle sections of path along the river, extending for over 2h biking from door reaching 1500m
✦ 30mins by hydrogen train to the base of the mountains (and ski station); horse riding 20mins, climbing 30mins; easy kayaking summer to the town from nearby (groups at other times); tennis court next door but in very bad condition, 2 indoor courts 10mins walk, gym across road
✦ the road noise would likely be unpleasant in the garden at peak hours (morning, pre/post lunch, and evening), however it's not excessive as there's a bypass so only people coming to shops and to/from work (as such); wouldn't be any issue inside the building as both lower floors are set into the hill and the top floor would be accommodation (quiet at night); as the road is a hill it's likely that engine noise could be worse, if so this property would be off the books
✦ a wooden baffling fence could be placed on the edge of the road above the garden, and/or there used to be a wall that could be rebuilt; a further improvement would be to build a semi-open conservatory space partly as a roof terrace, thus being outdoors but protected by floor/glass
✦ easy conversion as top floor as partly used until recently with mostly adequate windows, first and ground floor however were barn/garage thus require complete fitout
✦ front has 6 windows across both raised floors, and all have neat stone surrounds that look imposing even with the facde mostly covered in cement; only 2 new windows would be required with expansion of one or two others; plus skylights
✦ 2nd/top floor:
✦ 30m2 library with south and west windows plus doorway into garden (lively during day), possibility of 2–3 desks
✦ 2 premium rooms, 6 mezzanine/standard rooms, mezzanines would be basic for mattress only and with limited height
✦ opens onto 50m2 flat garden but immediately below road, potentially good for conservatory
✦ 1st/middle floor:
✦ 95m2 open plan kitchen/dining and casual working (10 places)
✦ 6 pods with 3 bathrooms
✦ opens onto lower garden
✦ ground floor:
✦ open space but only with light at one end having a large garage opening that would be glass
✦ would be used for focus coworking (10–15 places) during the day, and the dark end would be a cinema-lounge (lively in evening); it's use would be adaptable for events, and could also be used for indoor yoga
✦ 130m2 + unused grassy public land directly in front with the same again behind and lower bank that could be guerrilla gardened
✦ 275m2 garden
✦ private sale; parcel would be split as has a no longer operating hotel and restaurant just above it, may also have 2500m2 abandoned adjacent garden which could be jointly maintained or split
✦ the restaurant of the hotel would make a great coworking space with glass frontage and terrace for the views
✦ the neighbours also have unused plots (one being 1700m2) going down to the river
