That sounds perfect! You generally want to keep the fermenting beer below 72 degrees, so a room temperature of 65 degrees is probably about right.

You are one of the lucky ones and should be thankful you have a cool and steady temp fermentation location! The beer will ferment a few degrees warmer than the ambient temp and as yoop point out most beer styles/yeast strains do best somewhere in the 60s so you should be good to go.

Of course, we're all assuming you're fermenting a "standard" ale. Lagers need to be much cooler. Some Belgians benefit from being even warmer.

As long as it's an ale, that's perfect. Just be sure that the basement is a reasonably steady 65F, and doesn't have large fluctuations in temp throughout the day.
