It was a tough show this week with the judges getting very harsh with their judging.
In the end, it was a Kilkenny home that secured a place in the final with a score of just 24.
Catrinel and Stefan Cadare live in a Victorian house in Kilkenny with their son Anter. The property was built sometimes between 1840 and 1860.
The couple purchased the house in 2020 to create their dream home. And that they did!
They wanted to create a moody, chilled and industrial feel in their home, but also to make sure that the ground level was an exceptional living, relaxing and entertaining space.
Amanda adored the home saying: “All I can say to the homeowners is: Bravo. They’ve really gone for it, it’s brilliant.”
While Hugh added: “It’s like a scene out of Pulp Fiction, it’s just amazing.”
However, Sara wasn’t sold on the home admitting: “Arriving up to this home I was quite excited. I just felt like even on the brightest day I needed all the lights on.”
She even stated that the bedroom “works for me on no levels.”
Next stop was Dublin, where they visited Tanya Neufeld Flanagan and Morgan Flanagan Creagh’s new build A-rated Dublin home which they bought in 2020.
Tanya, an interior designer, says that the home afforded them a completely blank canvas, and so as soon as they moved in, they set about making the home personal to them.
The couple decorated the home to represent their character, to create conversation and make people smile.
The judges were impressed by their hard work scoring the home a 23.
Finally, they headed to Wicklow where Martina Mahady and husband Aaron Doherty live in their lodge-style home.
The couple bought the home in 2018 and began their remodel in late 2020 with completion in 2022. Their refurbishment included new windows with double-height glazing at the front to frame the woodland views, a kitchen extension and a new larger porch.
The judges were impressed with Amanda stating: “The site is unbelievable.”
“This home is about the inside and the outside and the homeowners have the perfect combination,” Hugh added.
Despite their high praise it was only given a score of 21.
