The Chester Kingsley House is an historic house at 10 Chester Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The oldest portion of this architecturally eclectic house was built in 1866, with Second Empire styling. Chester Kingsley, a local politician, had the house extensively altered and extended in 1890, adding a blending of Queen Anne and Colonial Revival features, and a rear ell. The ell was further enlarged in 1919, when the property was converted for use as a hospital.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
