Property Description:

No 41 Cowper Road is without doubt one of the finest family homes to come on the market in Dublin 6 this year. This is a wonderful double-fronted Victorian home, built c. 1891, standing on 0.4 acres approx. of exceptional south facing gardens. It enjoys an enviable position on this tree lined road, with stunning views across to the architectural gem that is the Mageough Home, which was bequeathed originally by Ms Elizabeth Mageough to the Church of England in Ireland. After the Mageough Home was built, Cowper Road, Temple Gardens and Temple Villas were developed around it.

The property has been well maintained over the years without compromising its integrity or character. The interior has impressive elegant proportions, rich in period detail with high ceilings and wonderful period fireplaces synonymous with the Victorian era.

41 Cowper Road enjoys exceptional gardens of 0.4 acres approx. they are a truly outstanding feature of the property. The width of the site may offer further potential to develop (subject to planning permission). The front garden has generous off-street parking for several cars, is landscaped and bordered by mature trees. A wonderful secluded rear garden (115 ft. x 82ft approx.) benefits from an ideal south-facing orientation and is set out in lawn with mature borders of specimen trees and herbaceous planting, creating year-round interest.

The property is just 2 miles from St. Stephen' s Green supremely convenient with Rathmines, Rathgar, Ranelagh and Dartry on the doorstep and within a stroll of local shopping at Upper Rathmines Road and Dunville Avenue.
