Hollywood House

Ever wanted to live in Hollywood? Well, now you can.

No, not the home of film stars, but Hollywood House Estate in Glenealy, Co Wicklow, which is on the market with Colliers International for €5 million.

Hollywood House is an important Georgian house believed to date from about 1760. The main reception rooms, centred around the impressive double reception and stairs hall, are of graceful proportions and full of light from high sash windows.

The house was damaged in a fire in 1892 and the interior was subsequently remodelled by J. Beckett and Sons of Dublin.

This is an important estate ringed by mature woodland with the house approached via a long tree and Rhododendron lined avenue offering superb views over the surrounding countryside and hills.

Hollywood House is adjacent to the Wicklow and Bray hunt country and bounds Coillte State Forestry, which is perfect not only for natural protection but also plenty of opportunity for walking and riding. There are championship golf courses nearby including Druids Glen, The European and Powerscourt.

The glorious golden beaches of the east coast and harbours from which to fish, boat and sail, are all within a 20 minute drive.

The grounds are a particular feature of the property and as well as having fine, mature beech and oak trees, it also includes a number of fine specimen trees and a tremendous variety of flowering rhododendron.
