וילה זיו - בית הדר
וילה זיו נבנתה בשנת 1935. האדריכל המתכנן היה ריכרד קאופמן.
לורד ישראל זיו (1889-1972), היה עסקן ציוני חשוב באנגליה, מידידי חיים וייצמן ואלפרד מונד. בשנת 1931 הוא הצטרף לחברת מטעי ארץ ישראל, קנה כ-800 דונם קרקע, והקים את "משק זיו", שהיה מבוסס על מטעי הדר.
אשתו, רבקה זיו, הייתה המייסדת והנשיאה של תנועת ויצ"ו העולמית.
בני הזוג בנו את ביתם בתל מונד, ורבקה זיו התגוררה בבית הזה עד יום מותה בשנת 1966.
הבית נבנה בסגנון באוהאוס, וסביבו יש גן מטופח וברכת שחייה. בתקופת "המדינה שבדרך" הייתה וילה זיו בית אירוח, ויצאו לה מוניטין כמקום מפגש לאנשי השלטון הבריטי, דיפלומטים ואורחים רבי מעלה.
בית השומר של וילה זיו נהרס בתקופת הפדאיון, בשנת 1956.
סמוך לגדר הווילה, בפרדס זיו, היה "מכון סלע", אחד ממפעלי התע"ש במחתרת.

Villa Ziv - Beit Hadar
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.
