About This 1927 The Ford Mansion In Perrysburg Ohio
Steeped in Jacobean Revival Legacy, The Ford Mansion (built by Toledo industrialist George Ross Ford in the 1920’s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is in the gated community of “The Hamlet” which overlooks the serenity of the Maumee River.
The home has retained its architectural authenticity (an exterior embellished with carved limestone and an intricate Flemish brick pattern) which showcases the unparalleled quality of materials and workmanship. As you enter the estate, dramatic impressions start with the original hand-carved trim and uniquely carved plater ceiling in the living room. The red gum wood paneled dining room; a ship’s room replicating the hull of a ship with lighted portholes, a mast and curved doors; eight bedrooms; eight full bathrooms and two half baths; seven fireplaces; kitchen with river view; handsomely developed lower level; and a tunnel to the five-car garage are a few of the mansion’s highlights.
84’ boat dock area. The Hamlet community provides access to the river, has tennis and paddle tennis courts, and maintains a pool, pool house and warming house. Excerpt taken from The Wall Street Journal where The Ford Mansion was featured as “House of the Week.”
