Cooperhill House enjoys an idyllic countryside setting on the River Nanny with impressive views over the surrounding countryside. The current house was rebuilt in 1927 as the original house was burned in the War of Independence c. 1921 – there are remnants of the old house wall to the rear of the property. The two-storey, period residence features a stone-fronted exterior and offers spacious accommodation extending to approximately 370 sq m / 3,982 sq ft.
The property is set back from the Julianstown – Duleek Road and is surrounded by mature gardens and numerous specimen trees giving great privacy. The house is approached through impressive stone piers with cast-iron gates and a driveway leading to the front of the house with ample parking.
The internal accommodation is of generous proportions in line with the time of construction with many period features still intact throughout the home including the sash windows, detailed coving and feature high ceilings. The grand entrance hall provides access to the main reception rooms namely the drawing room and dining room, which are bright and spacious and a breakfast room off the inner hall which opens out to the kitchen quarters. There is a conservatory off the kitchen area that provides access to the tidy gardens to the rear of the house. Also on the ground floor, there is also a useful shower room and guest WC.
On the first floor, there are 7 double bedrooms and two bathrooms, all centred around a beautiful landing space. The main rooms are light-filled and expansive with the added benefit of period fireplaces and wash hand basins. The layout of the bedrooms lends itself to the inclusion of ensuite bathrooms and walk in wardrobes subject to the necessary planning permission.
Please refer to the floorplans for a full list of the accommodation over the two floors.
Enclosed by a beautiful stone wall, the courtyard comprises many stone-built sheds with and without lofts, and a derelict coach house to the west of the house. The yard is currently in grass but could be a real focal point of the overall gardens with some careful planning. The buildings are in poor state of repair but there is plenty of scope for renovation subject to the necessary planning consents.
Please refer to the floorplans for further information on the outbuildings.
