A desert home with ties to both Hollywood and the White House has listed for sale in Rancho Mirage at $3.695 million.
Set in the Thunderbird Country Club, the contemporary house was built in 2016 on what was once part of former President Gerald Ford and Betty Ford's estate. The previous house, once home to actress Ginger Rogers and next door to the Fords' longtime residence, was used during their ownership as a command post for the Secret Service.
Entered through a walled and palm tree-topped courtyard, the five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom house features high ceilings, white walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. A long entry hall lined with wood panels leads to the common areas.
The 5,852 square feet of open-plan space includes a living room with a modern wall fireplace, a formal dining room, a family room and a center-island kitchen. There are walk-in closets and a glass box-like shower in the master suite.
Covered terraces and sunning areas create additional living space outdoors. A swimming pool and spa, a fire pit, lawn and cactuses complete the setting.
John Nelson and Cat Moe of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage hold the listing.
