292 Hills Road (York House)

Historical notes about 292 Hills Road

This house was built by the builder Cyril Ridgeon in 1924, to the designs of the architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens. The house is one of three louses designed by Lutyens in the Cambridge area, the most well-known being ‘Middlefield’ in Hinton Way, Shelford.

York House is an example of Lutyens country house look and has fine brickwork and mock Tudor panelling.
