Grey House in Blackrock was built for Lord Proby in 1746 so he could escape the hectic lifestyle of Dublin city centre - a trend emulated by many a home-buyer in the subsequent centuries.

The period property's original grounds now form part of Carysfort Park, which is just a three-minute walk from Glenveagh Proby Place, a new development named after Lord Proby.

Glenveagh Homes launched the scheme of 20 semi-detached family abodes back in May 2018. Two of those homes are still available. Both are four/five-bed three-storey properties with sizes ranging from 2,325 sq ft to 2,950 sq ft and prices starting at €1.1m.

Inside, the solid wood in-frame bespoke kitchen from Nolan Kitchens features an island unit, quartz stone worktops and Siemens appliances - including a wine fridge. Glass doors open from the kitchen/dining/family room to the paved patio and garden.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor and two on the second, though one of the latter could be used as a playroom or den. In the bathrooms, there is Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware. Viewings at Glenveagh Proby Place are by appointment.
