One of our readers’ favourite Irish homes from ‘IMAGE interiors’ is now on the market

Wedding planner Kate O'Dowd's Fairview home, one of the most beloved homes ever featured in 'IMAGE interiors', is awaiting a new owner.

You may well remember the dreamy living room of Kate O’Dowd’s beautiful Dublin home – the army-green BoConcept sofa and the gorgeous yellow armchair sitting in the sunlit bay window. It’s up there with the most-liked photos on the IMAGE interiors Instagram.

Now that bay window, plus the entire house could be yours, as the three-bedroom Fairview townhouse hits the market at €650,000.

The pop of pale blue on the front door is a harbinger of things to come as Kate, the creative talent behind love & gatherings and Centrepiece, brought all her skills to the table when it came to the interior design. In the hallway, the mint green kickboards of the stairs greet you immediately, complemented by crisp white walls, high ceilings and the original 1860s timber floors.

A peach-painted door leads you into the main living room, where the white walls continue, allowing the stunningly decorative Victorian cast-iron fireplace to shine. Opened up to include the middle room, currently used as free-flowing playroom, this large space could be a lavish living area or easily split to include a luxurious home office or dining room (or both, as many of us can attest).

Through the blue door is the equally blue L-shaped kitchen extension where there’s ample space for socialising and entertaining. With skylights, glass French doors into the garden and windows above the countertops of the kitchen and island, it’s a wonderfully bright space.

A chilled out sofa by the dining table gives it an intimate feel and the kitchen is surprisingly large with wrap-around pale blue units and open-shelving to allow the light to pour in.

The first-floor return is home to the modern family bathroom with a bath and a large walk-in shower. Three bedrooms sit on the first floor, two doubles (one with built-in wardrobes) and one ideal as a child’s bedroom. The attic too has been recently converted and is currently used as a spacious office, lit by two large Velux windows overhead.

Outside are a patio area and garage, along with a green space of grass and mature bedding and a tucked-away washing line. Currently on the market for €650,000, we reckon this 131-square-metre home will be snapped up quickly.
