President Gerald Ford’s Compound Goes Up For Sale
The six-bedroom home of President Gerald Ford was placed on the market this week and the Rancho Mirage desert compound which sits on the 13th fairway of the Thunderbird Country Club and was designed by architect Welton Becket comes with an asking price of $1.7 million.
Ford moved into the home in 1978 and lived there until 2006. The home remained lived in until 2006 when Betty Ford passed away.
Included on the property is a high-tech security system that was installed by the secret service along with a swimming pool that was used daily by the former US President.
The Ford estate is also offering to sell the homes furniture with the purchase or as a separate offering.
The last home of Gerald Ford to go on sale was his boyhood home in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that property remained vacant for 20 years before it was restored and turned into a landmark.
If you had the money would you like to live in the long-time home of a United States President? The secret service security system is definitely a nice added touch.
