Sir William Chambers' instructions came from the Third Viscount Midleton and he commenced the design for the mansion in 1763. It is believed that the works were completed in 1767. The Estate remained in the Midleton family for nearly 200 years and in 1947, a charitable trust acquired it for residential and educational purposes.In 1998 Peper Harow House underwent a complete restoration with sympathetic alterations to create seven apartments and two wings within the confines of a Grade I listed mansion house.
