When it comes to round towers, the design of the one in Lusk in North County Dublin is a real lesson in disguise. It has been incorporated into a medieval belfry with three corner turrets, making it seem like the church and round tower are all one. On closer inspection, it becomes obvious that the eight-storey tower is a separate building.

It was built in the 9th century in an effort to protect the neighbouring monastery from Viking raids. It is believed that St Macculin founded the monastery in Lusk in 497. It came under attack many times during its history, with lives lost each time it was besieged.

The round tower is the only surviving building from the original monastery complex. The attached square tower was built between the 15th and 16th centuries. It houses a number of tombs, including that of James Bermingham and a double effigy of Christopher Barnewell and his wife Marion Sherle.

Not far from this historic site is a new development by McGarrell Reilly. Construction at Rahenny Park in Lusk is well underway, with the hope that buyers will be in their homes by September, which will be music to the ears of those who are keen to buy a property rather than off a plan.

The scheme will have a mix of three and four-bed houses, with the first 22 just launched onto the market.

There are two types of four-bed detached models — The Elm and The Oak. The Elm is 1,389sq ft in size and costs from €530,000, while The Oak has a larger living space at the back of the house bringing the floor area up to 1,496sq ft and starts at €565,000.

Inside each home is a fitted kitchen by BeSpace with soft close doors and white quartz worktops with upstands and splash backs. The bedrooms have shaker-style wardrobes in the master and second bedroom, as well as the third bedroom in the four-bed houses.

High-speed fibre broadband will be available in all houses which is a necessity now for those working from home, and the development is a 20-minute walk to the train station, with over 20 trains running to Grand Canal Dock each weekday. Families will like the fact that the development also has direct access into Clonrath Park.

Agent Dermot Grimes says he has seen a shift in buyer type due to the flexibility of remote working. He has observed interested parties coming from as far as Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire, as well as those from nearby areas like Baldoyle and Raheny.
