Default 62-64 deg. basement fermentation AND conditioning?

A new-to-me basement is like 62-64 degrees, with maybe a slightly cooler area.

Last week was my first fermentation run, with Nottingham yeast and it's doing great (Apfelwien, actually).

Will conditioning within this temperature range, below the magic 70 deg. level just take more time?

Bottle conditioning at that temp will take a little longer.

My basement is the exact same temp. I bottle condition for minimum three weeks down there and a few days in the fridge. Best is four weeks in the basement, one in the fridge.
