Harefield House Hillingdon
Summary: Harefield House is a C17th house with a plain stuccoed front dating from the early C19th. The former estate grounds were largely built over with housing. In the 1920s it was owned by country house historian Avray Tipping, who laid out gardens and built some houses in the grounds, including 3 houses near the pond on Harefield Green, which date from c.1934. Harefield House was later occupied by the Ministry of Defence and remains in private ownership. A magnificent cedar tree behind the house is visible from the main road.
