‘High Noon’ is a handsome and imposing detached period house which occupies a privileged and prominent position in arguably the most sought-after location within the village, on the Green. The property dates circa 1750’s and has been occupied by the current family for over 50 years. The property has been altered and extended in more recent times but would benefit from sympathetic modernisation and further expansion (STPC) and offers a rare opportunity for someone looking to create a wonderful family home.
A narrow no-through lane separates the property from the picturesque green and brook and leads to the driveway and garage beyond. The entrance door is located to the side of the property and opens into the reception hall which leads to all principal ground floor accommodation. The impressive split level sitting room has two attractive replacement double glazed sash windows which overlook the front aspect, low level cabinetry, a wood burning stove with exposed brick surround, glazed double doors to the garden and triple doors which open into the separate formal dining room. This room has recently undergone some cosmetic changes which includes painted timber panelled walls. The modern kitchen/breakfast room provides an extensive range of high-gloss, two-tone drawers and cabinets, solid wood working surfaces, a range of built-in appliances, attractive tiled flooring and access to a walk-in pantry. A rear lobby leads to the garden and provides access to the garage space and workshop to the rear. Upstairs, the first floor landing leads to the luxurious bathroom suite with separate shower cubicle and four spacious bedrooms which all provide useful built-in wardrobes. All bedrooms benefit from uninterrupted views towards the green. Outside, the private rear garden has a variety of mature trees and shrubs, a lawned area and paved terrace seating area. There is an opportunity to create further off-street parking if necessary.


Histon is widely acknowledged as being one of the most sought-after villages north of Cambridge. Its particularly convenient location just 3 miles from the city centre adds to its popularity and communications are first class, the A14 and M11 being within a few minutes drive. 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.
