Home of the Year, the successful RTÉ show is looking for enthusiastic owners to put their homes forward for the next series of the show, which it’s hoped, will feature 21 diverse homes from across the country.

Homesteaders who pitch for the series and make the shortlist, will then be whittled down to a final seven who will then progress to the grand finale with the winner being deemed...why, Home of the Year.

The team behind the production, and the popular judges, are looking for homes of all shapes, sizes and styles for series three and are open to submissions at www.rte.ie/homeoftheyear.ie

Whether your home is an unusual conversion, a classic restoration, a contemporary new build or a country cottage, it could be Ireland’s next Home of the Year.

Interior architect and designer, Hugh Wallace heads up a panel of judges that include architect Declan O’Donnell, and award-winning interior designer Deirdre Whelan . 

Their remit is to find homes that are filled with passion, personality and clever design at all budget levels. So, no problem there then.

Last year Egon Walesch and Richard Goodwin’s cabin in the woods in County Westmeath, seen above, scooped the trophy — and to be fair, it was gorgeous.

Hugh Wallace described the design of the home as “faultless” adding, “this home had it all and it was the surprise of opening the door that made it exceptional.”

The deadline for submission is July 18, so check out the online source above or email email homes@shinawil.com or call 01 2080855 for more information.
