History of 1 Brookside

Royal Commission Survey of Cambridge 1959: house … not shown in R G Baker’s map of 1830 but must have been built very shortly afterwards.  A large semi-octagonal bay was added on the W and the interior subdivided lat in the same century….The house though of composed ‘villa’ type shows a departure from strict symmetry towards a picturesque composition.
