Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 I can’t make out much detail here … so this is just a guess based on experience … did your spider look like this? (Male Black Lace-weaver, Amaurobius ferox):

You’re welcome!

Not really. It appears to be a wandering male in search of a mate. It’s not a species that really wants to establish itself indoors. If you see more then they’re probably wandering in somewhere by accident, if that happens you can just look for cracks along floors, doors, windows, foundation etc., seal them and keep them out that way.
