A line arrangement of 3n lines in ℂP2 satisfies the Hirzebruch property if each line intersect others in n + 1 points. Hirzebruch asked in 1985 if all such arrangements are related to finite complex reflection groups. We give a positive answer to this question in the case when the line arrangement in ℂP2 is real, confirming that there exist exactly four such arrangements.
