Hollywood star Saoirse Ronan is set to turn a tidy profit on a seaside home in north Dublin she has placed on the market.
The twice Oscar-nominated actress bought the swish terrace home at Thormanby Grove, in Howth, at the beginning of 2013, paying €334,000 for the property. The home has now been placed on the market with an asking price of €495,000, which would net Ronan (23) more than €160,000 in profit.
Galvin Property and Finance, the agent selling the property, was not contactable for comment.
But the agency describes the modest but stylish home of 1,200 sq ft as appealing both to investors and first-time buyers.
The house is located a stone's throw from the sea, and some of Dublin's finest seafood restaurants are within walking distance, with a wide array of shops and artisan cafés all close by. It is also within reach of the famous Howth Clifftop Walk.
Ronan is Hollywood's darling, having been first shortlisted for an Oscar at age 13, for her role in 'Atonement'.
She is reported recently as having purchased a house for more than €1m down the coast in Greystones, Co Wicklow.
