  • Description

    This former desert residence of 38th President of the United States Gerald Ford and Betty Ford is a rare opportunity to own a truly historic home.

    This home has been the setting for many dignitary and celebrity visits but still radiates a warm family environment.

    Located in the renowned Thunderbird Country Club, this six bedroom, four bathroom home was built in 1979 designed by the legendary mid century architect Welton Becket. 

    Situated on 1.37 acres with amazing pool and entertainment areas abound,  this 6,316 sq. ft. home exudes mid century desert style and offers mountain and fairway views.

    The residence has five bedrooms and a staff waiting room along with six and a half bathrooms.

    A separate residence is also being offered ideally adjacent to the main residence.  The “Secret Service Guard Shack” would make a perfect guest house which is being separately offered for $509,000.
