    About this property

    • Histon House, 42 Tenison Road was constructed, according to its ornate plaque in 1885, of painted brick elevations with high quality wooden double glazed sash windows beneath a slate roof. The property extends to 2,216 sq ft of well-planned, flexible accommodation and is accessed via twin arched entrance doors into an entrance hallway with a Minton tiled floor and wide archway with original corbels. Of particular interest are the two main receptions rooms, both of which have stripped wooden floors, ornate fireplaces and moulded plaster ceiling cornicing and can be divided by (original) wide sliding painted panelled doors. There is a wide bay window to the front along with stained glazed double doors to the rear.

      The kitchen/breakfast and dining room has a dual aspect and is fitted with a comprehensive range of high gloss white cabinetry beneath granite works and has an integrated stainless steel double oven and wide gas hob with five burners along with space for an American style fridge/freezer. There is a walk-through cupboard that can house a stacked washer and drier along with a cloakroom beyond with contemporary suite. From the kitchen is a staircase descending into a family/playroom which has plenty of natural light from the above lightwell. To the front, and divided by a plasterboard division is a store/workshop which could be used as a hobbies room, wine cellar or similar or could even could be combined to create a much large reception room.

      There are four bedrooms on the upper two floors, including three very large doubles, the main bedroom which extends the full width of the house has a matching wide bay window, deep recessed wardrobes and an ornate fireplace. The top floor bedroom has a dormer window to the rear and two skylights to the front, there is another landing Velux skylight which allows for lots of natural light into the first floor landing.
