18 (10) Hills Road (4 Cintra Terrace)
History of 18 Hills Road
Pevsner notes (Cambridgeshire p. 327): the retained facade of Cintra House, originally added c 1860-5 to an early C19 four-storey terrace. The design is reportedly by John Edlin, in a very coarse eclectic style, with a row of roundels and heads sticking out of them.
Likely to have been the home of Alexander and Hannah Tracy in 1861. Certainly their home from 1865.
