O’Hara, who died in 2015 at 95, bought the house in 1993 for $650,000 and owned it for about five years, The Times previously reported. During her lifetime, she maintained other residences in the Virgin Islands and Cork County, Ireland.

The red-headed actress starred in more than 60 movies during her 75-year career including “How Green Was My Valley” (1941), “The Quiet Man” (1952) and “Big Jake” (1971). She received an honorary Oscar in 2014 for her lifetime contribution to film.
