82 Station Road is a wonderful two-bedroom thatched cottage dating back to around 1810. The property has undergone an extensive range of improvements over the years, and whilst retaining many of its original features, offers comfortable living and well-appointed accommodation throughout. Located just off Histon High Street on Station Road, the property provides easy access to village amenities and transport links.
In a little more detail, the original part of the house comprises a generously proportioned dining room enjoying a feature fireplace with log burner and a cosy living room with a second feature fireplace and easterly facing aspect. To the rear, there is a later extension which houses the kitchen and family bathroom. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cabinetry, electric fan oven, four-ring gas hob with extractor over, sink with mixer tap and space for several freestanding appliances. The family bathroom is equipped with four-piece suite including attractive rolltop bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and wash basin. On the first floor, there are two good-sized double bedrooms with exposed wooden beams and easterly facing aspects allowing a high degree of natural light in the mornings. Outside, there are both front and rear gardens which are well stocked with an abundance of trees, shrubs and planted beds. Accessed via a secure side gate, the westerly facing rear garden is paved over for ease of maintenance and houses a wooden storage shed.
Histon is widely acknowledged as being one of the most sought-after villages north of Cambridge.

The village boasts many local facilities including excellent schooling for all ages from pre-school to sixth form. Good local shopping is available in the village and there is a regular bus service to Cambridge. Histon is served by Cambridgeshire County Council's Guided Busway with an estimated journey time to the Science Park of approximately 3 minutes. Girton Golf Club is also within a few minutes drive.
