🏢#5 🏅65%  REJECT • €117k • rustic • village • 900m² hub • Offers both nature and a station (2h to Paris). The environment isn't terribly exciting and only marginally sunny, though there's some non-challenging trails, sitting on the terrace with the green view will make up for that when not working or in the conservatory if raining, which is does a fair bit. Very cool vaulted stone caves with view for working from. Needs quite a bit of work to enlarge and extend. Disadvantages: most rooms in loft thus with small windows or skylights.

Property ✧ windows would be enlarged for 1st floor studios; vaulted cellars and dovecote but half of rooms would be in loft (with skylights/small windws only) and needs an additional new wing, worst option but most like to get permission is simply in the courtyard; could regardless build event space in field
