Environment ✧ on the 2400m Peñalara mountain, 30mins walk to a dam with lots of walks on doorstep

Services ✧ some shops, mostly touristic; town 20mins

Access ✧ 15mins drive to high speed line and town and 30mins to Madrid (€14); regular bus 20mins to town

Notes ✧ Could be a very affordable refit as a large satellite space, with 14 bedrooms and 240m2 of common spaces.
✦ Climate ranks ok as would be a satellite thus not attempting to be year-round appealing to everyone, rather in the winter it would attract wintery-folks!
✦ Whilst the building is very limited and gloomy with small rooms and no outdoor space, there are numerous places in the town.
✦ Skiing at Valdesqui, and Puerto de Navacerrada only 20mins away.
✦ Local town of Segovia matches most hub requirements being a university town of about 50k population.
✦ Altitude is 1200m with quite a cold climate extending over 5 months.
✦ 600Mbps fibre (Orange)
Property ✧ not as captured, has no facade onto the street, see ads for facade from alley
✦ also available for rent thus likely very flexible
✦ Most rooms would have windows only onto an airshaft or gap between buildings; there would be a few premium rooms with windows onto alley (maybe street).
✦ The top floor has windows on 3 sides thus can be used for coworking/living, whilst the attic if usable could have additional gables or sunlights.
✦ Ground floor would be kitchen/dining. There's a neighbouring garage on another alley that might be acquired and knocked through (although on a different level) for better street access and light as it opens towards a square, giving a much better ground floor space with light on two sides not just one. This would thus become the lively coworking.
✦ Has one of the highest roofs thus if permission can be obtained a roof terrace would be amazing (but unlikely given that the entire area is protected and no other roof terraces exist.
✦ Is a small building across 6 floors. Very narrow staircase. Could plausibly have good common spaces on top floor, and ground floor.
✦ Access is via two sides, at the front there's a narrow (3m) frontage onto Calle Cuartel Nuevo opposite a large well-presented building next to a square, which may include a window on each floor; second at the back via an absurdly narrow alley that opens out a bit and could be repaved as a semi-private outdoor space.
