OFTEN there is a story that goes with the name of a historic home.

It could be the original owner’s name, a location, an unmissable feature, or a bit of community spirit, such as the houses at Doo Town.

Here at No.15 Proctors Road, Dynnyrne, the name River-View aptly describes the majestic water outlooks that can be enjoyed from this stylish and sophisticated 1920s home.

This historic four-bedroom property has been comprehensively renovated throughout.

There are timber floorboards, fresh paint, new fittings and fixtures, and it has been completely replastered, rewired and re-plumbed.

The internal and external walls have been insulated, as has the ceiling.

High ceilings and the wide, open hallway allow the feeling of space and comfort to flow through into each room.

Relax in the tub.

Ideal for a family lifestyle, each of the four bedrooms is a generous size. They all have brick fireplaces and wooden mantelpieces.

The two front rooms boast water views and allow in plenty of sunshine, with the master featuring gorgeous bay windows.

Original period elements blend seamlessly with the contemporary upgrades to each bedroom, including white plantation shutters and heating.

Further down the hallway, the ultra-modern bathroom features chic grey and white tiles from floor to ceiling.

An on-trend circular sink sits atop the floating timber and stone vanity, and there is a luxurious walk-in shower and a stand-alone bathtub.

Harmonising style flows effortlessly throughout the home, with matching black matt fittings in the wet areas, including in the laundry and additional powder room.

A fabulous open-plan living, dining and kitchen area can be found at the rear of the residence.

Stone benchtops and new stainless-steel appliances, including a dual sink, AEG gas cooktop, oven, rangehood and dishwasher, are found in the Hamptons-style kitchen. Subway tiles and classic white cabinetry are complemented by striking matt black fixtures.
