14 King’s Parade

History of 14 King's Parade

This house has 5 storeys with cellars and attics. It was built in 1787 by a Mr York, upholsterer, on the site of ‘God’s House’ or Driver’s House according to a document by John Bowtell in Downing College Library. The staircase was rebuilt early in the 19th century.

Though the site is so restricted, building to such a height is exceptional in Cambridge houses before 1800 and rare thereafter. (see 1959 Royal Commission on Historical Monuments Survey of Cambridge)
