You might be wondering where your annual fix of 'Room to Improve' has gone, but don't worry it is on the way. To keep you tided over however, RTÉ have a new Dermot Bannon series kicking off this Sunday.

Called 'Dermot Bannon’s Incredible Homes', it will see the nation's favourite architect showcase some of the world’s most amazing homes. RTÉ says; "From sunny Sydney to London city, from stylish Melbourne to the snowy landscape of northern Sweden, Dermot explores how people live around the globe in this four part series."

His explorations will see him in a city pad worth £30million in Mayfair in London, a cave inspired house that has a 3 metre python in the rainforest back garden, an isolated log cabin in snowy Sweden and a massive poly-carbonate structure with a swimming pool in the bedroom.

In episode one this Sunday, Dermot is in Sydney where he visits the award winning Cabbage Tree House, a stunning home embedded in the hillside of the suburbs of Bayview in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. He also heads to the home of the elusive and enigmatic Judith Nielson, one of Australia’s wealthiest people. Judith is a multi millionaire art collector and philanthropist, who only recently set up a $100 million fund supporting journalism.


Dermot also spends a day in the world famous Harry Seidler House, which is one of the most iconic homes in Australia as well as taking in the incredible view at The Cliff House, owned by Lisa and Ralph Mobbs and designed by Renato D’Ettorre.
