FAR FROM MOVIE sets and the Hollywood Hills, Pine Lodge in Greystones, Co Wicklow has come to the market for €1.5m – and lists Saoirse Ronan as its owner. 

Built in the 1970s, the five-bed property has been re-designed and modernised over the past two years. The result is a home that’s as elegant inside as it is out.

Spanning 4,834 sq ft, Pine Lodge features a sweeping tree-lined driveway, manicured lawns, high walls and electronic gates for the utmost privacy.

To the front, a veranda, wooden sash windows and a red-tiled roof make for an attractive first impression of the residence. Inside, this continues with a large entrance hall and multiple spacious reception rooms. 

Two interconnecting reception rooms to the right act as the ideal location to host a party, with both a living and dining area here, complete with broad panel wooden floors, sash windows and a marble fireplace.

With its baby blue presses ornate floors and multiple bay windows, the kitchen wouldn’t be out of place in a glossy magazine. A few steps away is the cosy living area with a wood-burning stove and views of the rear garden.
