At 162 Histon Road stands a purpose built 2 storey modern building, approximately 1,000 sq. ft. configured with a showroom office on the ground floor and small office units and kitchen at the upper level. Historically the property has been used as reception/showroom and offices but currently is being used as a chiropodist surgery. The wide frontage of 164-180 Histon Road provides a large fast fit style motor trade workshop site, with staff and customer areas. The site offers approximately 11,104 sq. ft. of accommodation plus mezzanine. Consequently, the area has been configured to offer fitting bays, including MOT bay, storage areas and both staff and customer facilities. In 2017 part of the property was segregated to provide a recently well-appointed funeral director service location.

In 1984 an ambitious development of the site was undertaken and a three storey modern construction was built at the front of the site offering a new showroom at ground floor and open plan office space at the upper levels.

In 2013 HTS Estates Limited further adapted the ground floor area which now is divided into four separate units to offer two smaller retail/showroom office units fronting the Histon Road and two industrial uses to the rear.

These most recent changes were to reflect the changing requirements of businesses and has enabled a new coffee shop and a busy grocery store to establish themselves at the location. The upper floors of this building were historically used as office suites, but more recently have been converted to provide dance studios with separate waiting room, changing room and office area.


The surrounding area provides a strong residential catchment with Histon Road being a main commuter route leading from the edge of the city centre to the A14 to the north. This premises provides a rare opportunity for the roadside and motor trade industry as well as other local centre uses.

Local occupiers include Aldi and Iceland stores, Co-operative food store, chemist, newsagent and an Esso filling station.
