Villa Ziv was built in 1935. The planning architect was Richard Kaufman.
Lord Israel Ziv (1889-1972), was an important Zionist activist in England, a friend of Chaim Weizmann and Alfred Mond. In 1931, he joined the Eretz Israel Orchards Company, bought about 800 dunams of land, and established the "Ziv Farm", which was based on citrus orchards.
His wife, Rivka Ziv, was the founder and president of the global WIZO movement.
The couple built their home in Tel Mond, and Rivka Ziv lived in this house until the day she died in 1966.
The house is built in the Bauhaus style, and around it there is a well-kept garden and a swimming pool. During the "State of the Road" period, Villa Ziv was a guest house, and gained a reputation as a meeting place for British government officials, diplomats and distinguished guests.
Villa Ziv’s guard house was destroyed during the Fadayon period, in 1956.
Adjacent to the fence of the villa, in Pardes Ziv, was the "Sela Institute", one of the industrial plants in the underground.
