🏬#36 🥈78%  SOLD • €199k • rustic • suburb • 500m² mini-hub • A pretty good balance of all criteria plus great weather. Advertised as only 500m2 yet lots of conversion/extension potential for up to 1450m2. Whilst it has no transport at the door, everything is only a 30min walk (quicker by bike of course, and it's rarely rainy!). It is reasonably isolated with a very large field which could be re-wilded. The disadvantage is that it is expensive (maybe 175k) however the main buulding requires no structural work to get going, although would need permission for converting a shelter into additional capacity/event space. Just 15mins from airport.
