Saoirse Ronan is selling her house in Greystones, Co Wicklow that she re-decorated herself.
Galvin realtors say of the New Road home that has a €1.5 million asking price: "A property of this caliber and distinction is not often available in such a private setting and prestigious location.”
They add: “Once you arrive at the property there is a real sense of peace and tranquillity where the only sounds pervading the quiet calm are the birds in the day time and the noise of the ocean nearby by night.”
The home's details, including a west-facing veranda, wooden sash windows, granite sills, red-tiled roof, tall chimney stacks, and filigree ridge tiles, are said to be inspired by the neighboring Burnaby area and the arts and crafts movement.
“There is a reception hall behind the front door worthy of the most elegant dinner party and there is wonderful symmetry to the ground floor accommodation either side. To the right, there are two interconnecting reception rooms that could separately accommodate a large group but with the sliding doors in the wall recess, they adjoin and allow light to pour in from three sides.
“There is no shortage of features with stunning broad panel wooden floors salvaged and restored to add a hint of the old to a very modern living space.
“The dining room to the front of the house has three windows overlooking the front garden and two to the side all of which are complete with sash function and timber window surround/shutters.
"The living room to the rear is every bit as elegant and features a beautiful marble hearth and open fireplace at its focal point.
“The kitchen/breakfast room is where this house truly becomes a home with exquisite attention to detail allied with tasteful design. The current owner has painstakingly designed and decorated this open plan room to be practical, comfortable, and aesthetically impressive all in equal measures. The kitchen is situated in the center of the room around a large island complete with white marble countertop and hand-painted baby blue kitchen units. Light pours in through the bay window to the front and to the rear there is a comfortable living area with fire burning stove overlooking the manicured private rear garden.
“The secluded rear garden is dominated by a granite flag patio for al fresco dining, and a series of raised beds surrounded by box hedging and containing a variety of fruit trees, raspberry canes, rhubarb, and herbs - some of the ingredients for those discreet but fascinating dinner parties.
"As you ascend the elegant timber-framed staircase upstairs, the first floor is home to five bedrooms - all of them substantial, with fitted wardrobes and four with full ensuites."
A really eye-catching feature, and an insight into the intellectual curiosity and appreciation of excellence that pervades the house is the reading-room that forms part of the stairwell and first-floor landing.”
“One of the bedrooms close to the master bedroom has been converted to a large walk-in wardrobe with a luxurious en suite bathroom with separate shower comparable to a hotel suite in uptown New York. "
No word yet on where Saoirse Ronan, who is set to star in the upcoming remake of 'Little Women,' will lay down her roots next.
