In the early 18th century, the Barrys, a Protestant family from Cork, were given land in north Dublin and built a palatial house called Santry Court, the largest of its kind in the area.

These days, the property lies in ruins, though remnants of its history linger on in the form of a Georgian boating lake and walled gardens.

The Dublin Loft Company is building a new development called Northwood Green right beside the old country estate, part of which is now a 90-acre public park called Santry Demesne. The scheme was launched in early March and a second phase, comprising 10 three- and four-bed homes, is being released there this weekend.

Prices start at €375,000 for a three-bed spanning 1,355 sq ft, at €415,000 for a 1,445-sq ft four-bed, and at €460,000 for a four-bed with a study and 1,807 sq ft of accommodation across three floors.

The A3 brick-fronted properties have two car spaces in the front driveway. Inside, there is a bespoke fitted kitchen from Cawley's Furniture. Viewings at Northwood Green will be held between 2.30pm and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
