Seven-foot-tall portrait of Betty Ford greets you in the entry hall, which was hung in the White House during President Ford’s time in office.

President Gerald Ford and First Lady Betty Ford’s Estate is now available as a vacation rental in Rancho Mirage, CA, a city known as the retreat of national and world leaders, as well as Hollywood’s A-list celebrities. An architectural and design wonder in its own right, simply known as “The Ford Estate” is now offered by Oranj Palm Vacation Homes (OranjPalm.com).

This was the 38th President’s home after leaving the White House in 1977. It has been masterfully updated by the new owners who enlisted designer, Darren Brown, and architectural firm, Marmol Radziner to provide all the modern comforts, conveniences and style, while maintaining the integrity of the original architecture and fabulous ‘70s modern influence. Purchased fully furnished from the Ford family in 2012, some of the original decor has been maintained and restored or repurposed, now described as “‘70s elegance meets American Gigolo.” It’s Gerald and Betty Ford’s house, but it’s even better than they imagined it when they had it custom designed and built for them by well-known modernist architect, Welton Becket, in 1977, including interior decor originally created by Beverly Hills celebrity decorator, Laura Mako.
