29755 Somerset Road, Perrysburg, Ohio, United States, 43551
Revised: July 18, 2019 | As it turns out it’s not the entire mansion for sale here despite real estate websites labelling it as a single family home. What you’re getting for $895,000 is a large 12,000 square foot middle unit in the historic Ford Mansion. The unit in the sprawling brick Jacobean Revival mansion in Perrysburg, Ohio previously went to auction in 2013 and has been reduced to $895,000. The nearly 12,000 square foot middle unit is part of The Ford Mansion and was built by Toledo industrialist George Ross Ford in 1927. According to The Blade, the total size of the mansion is 20,000 square feet with 57 rooms and 13 fireplaces with as many as 349 keys for various locks throughout. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and sitting on a 0.5 acre property in the gated community of The Hamlet, the mansion retains wonderful period details and architectural elements from a bygone era. Original hand-carved trim, ornate plaster ceilings, marble fireplaces, a wood panelled dining room and a ship room replicating the hull of a ship with lit portholes are just some of the details. There are eight bedrooms, eight full and two half bathrooms throughout the unit, many of them featuring fireplaces. The property overlooks the Maumee River and features a tunnel to a five-car garage, an 84-foot boat dock area and access to the river, tennis courts and large community pool. The Ford Mansion middle unit is on the market for $895,000 with Sulphur Springs Realty, Inc.
