Notes ✧ rejected for layout and planning complexity
✦ lovely quiet location and river
✦ not really a good candidates but plausible for future and there's lots of other nearby factory buildings which would be better
✦ zoning may not be suitable
✦ assume cottage and garden not included as second ad is much more expensive including them
✦ 1500m2 of roof and 2 floors plus out building
✦ quite difficult to adapt as very deep; could split the roof in the middle with new walls reducing the total roof to 1000m2 with a 500m2 glasshouse/terrace which with changed outbuilding would provide amazing terraces above the river
✦ sounds like hydraulic rights are still active, there's a dam with channel and also a hydro generator just above
