Design: the engineer Pesah Zekled, the 1930’s
A rare opportunity to tour the villa which has been the British ambassador’s residence since Israel’s establishment. The design of the villa, which was originally built as a private home and was later converted into a small hotel, is an example of reserved Europe elegance. Numerous works of art decorate the walls, most of which were created by British artists and some of which have a connection with Israel. The tours will include a look at various rooms in the house, including the stately dining room, parlor, huge kitchen (where meals for dignitaries are prepared), the spacious yard, and the pool.
Entry to the residence is contingent on presenting an ID and going through a security check. Visitors will not be allowed to carry any weapons. Please note that parking is not available on Simtat HaMa’alot. It is advisable to bring a hat or a parasol because the waiting area is not shaded.
