Environment ✧ hills and river walks on doorstep, lake with boating walkable; mountains 30km (30mins regular train), coast 1h30

Services ✧ no shops walkable, basics bikeable 5km/20mins, local station 30mins walk +25mins to town 3 times daily, more frequent from next station at 3.5km (i.e. bike/scooter

Access ✧ 20mins mainline station, Rome 1h, Florence 3h, Bologna 3h30; driving Perugia 1h, Rome 1h30

Property ✧ 4ha land bordered by river; advertised as less floorspace, but inludes several outbuildings including a huge 450m2 footprint that could be rebuilt for floorspace totalling up to 1400m2

Notes ✧ Chelsea Rustrum's alchemyspaces.co is 15mins away! (very different positioning, starts at €1600/mo so arguably complimentary)
✦ probably would come down to 175k in which case it's okay, otherwise too expensive although the main building (700m2 usable) has a solid roof and floors so no major works, however needs 500m2 to be built (foundations, some walling and maybe roof frame exists)
✦ 41x8=300==600 +200m2 attic; 300x2 38x11=450 base; 50m2 60m2 and 100m2 outbuildings, plus 120m2 base
✦ WiMAX coverage from Rieti but ~10km could be supplemented with 4G from same location (signal is fair); might be possible mount relay on antenna on hill above (1000m) for connection in Terni or secondary WiMAX
✦ backs onto road but very quiet because mainroad is in tunnel through opposite hill (although exists in front of a hill that may reflect sound across the narrow valley); possible also to use a 2-step relay from Spinacetto to the intervening ridge (3.75+2.5 80/24), or from edge of Colli via the houses on the ridge (1km+1; 40/17)
✦ railway actually cuts through property, but tiny singletrack and no more frequent than hourly so I'd argue this is quite a nice reminder that we'd still be connected civilisation
✦ will need septic tank as usual but possibility of natural treatment into canal?
✦ river is very still as damed much further down, so probably not great for swimming but good for kayak/SUP on dorrstep itself up to 7km probably much further
✦ 3 water courses (river plus 2 canalised through property) potential for micro hydro maybe larger as one has weir at top of property; plus solar and groundsource heatpump
✦ could possibly use water from canal for a natural pool if filtered (sandpit)
