Gerald Ford's Former Home Back On The Market
The Orange County Register reports that the home, owned by a Newport Beach real estate investor and his family, is now listed at $10.995 million. The seven-bedroom home is a luxury ski-in/ski-out residence that includes a separate building with a swimming pool, spa and exercise room, a home theater, a dedicated massage room and a 600-bottle refrigerated wine room.
The Fords were longtime residents of the home, building it after the Beaver Creek Resort opened in 1980. They moved in to the home in 1983 and owned it until just after the former president died in December 2006. The home has been restored and the article in the OC Register says that the renovation cost around $4 million. It includes some presidential details such as the Seal of the President of the United States engraved in the entryway,and a plaque quoting President John Adams mounted on the fireplace that is identical to one on the fireplace of the State Dining Room in the White House. The sale also include furniture owned by Ford including the former dining room table and even Ford's skis and ski jacket. The listing with Forbes Sotheby's Realty shows more details of this luxury home.
