Pippa picks up man­sion for €1.3m

As blog­ger ex­tends re­tail range...

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS -

PIPPA O’CON­NOR and hus­band Brian Or­mond have splashed out a whop­ping €1.3m on a lux­ury pile in Kil­dare, the Ir­ish Mail on Sun­day can ex­clu­sively re­veal.

The cou­ple bought the fourbed­room house in the gated en­clave of Church­fields in the K Club in Au­gust. Pippa, who has more than 250,000 fol­low­ers on In­sta­gram, and Brian pre­vi­ously lived in a rented home in nearby Lady­cas­tle es­tate, also in the K Club.

But with Pippa’s busi­nesses tak­ing off they have now bought the Church­fields prop­erty, which boasts views over the golf course, and has plenty of room for sons Ol­lie, four, and Louis, 18 months, to play foot­ball.

As the MoS pre­vi­ously re­vealed, blog­ger Pippa can pull in up­wards of €50,000 in a sin­gle week­end by stag­ing one of her sig­na­ture Fash­ion Fac­to­ries, a work­shop where par­tic­i­pants can pick up tips on make-up and fash­ion.

This week­end, tick­ets for the first three Fash­ion Fac­to­ries of 2018 sold out. And ear­lier this week, Pippa, whose Poco jeans were a hit when they first went on sale last year, ex­tended her re­tail range when she launched two new life­style prod­ucts: a €45 plan­ner and a €42 can­dle.

A num­ber of her fol­low­ers did take to so­cial me­dia though to vent their frus­tra­tion at the price of the prod­ucts.

Pippa has shown her­self to be a skilled busi­ness­woman. Re­cent ac­counts from just one of her com­pa­nies show she made over a quar­ter of a mil­lion euro last year alone.

The com­pany Ronocco Style Ltd lists Pippa and Brian as its two di­rec­tors. And it showed that dur­ing the pe­riod July 23, 2015, to Septem­ber 30, 2016, the model built up prof­its of €288,149.

Brian, pic­tured above with Pippa, works along­side her, al­beit in a back­ground role.

A keen golfer, he is sure to make good use of the 18-hole golf course on the fam­ily’s new doorstep.

The mock-Tu­dor house was built in 2002 and plans for the prop­erty show that it has four be­d­rooms and mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas. In Au­gust, Pippa re­vealed to fol­low­ers that she had found her ‘for­ever home’, and di­vulged a few of the new house’s fea­tures that had sealed the deal for her.
