Boreham House HistoryBoreham House is a truly amazing Grade I listed mansion with a stately avenue of trees, between which there is a breathtaking formal lake. Once inside the house you are surrounded by history, a great deal of the original features have been retained including the decorative handcrafted plasterwork on the 24ft high ceilings, original fireplaces and solid oak panelling.

Boreham House was originally built around 1730 for Benjamin Hoare Esq., he commissioned prominent architects Henry Flitcroft & Sir James Gibb to design the house and it was embellished with fine marbles and other materials including the staircase bought from New Hall, owned by Henry VIII from 1517 to 1547.

In 1931 Henry Ford purchased the estate, he was returning from Oberammergau when the train was held up briefly at the Generals Lane level crossing and he noticed that Boreham House was for sale, he seized the opportunity to realise one of his dreams and bought it, this is where he set up Fordson Estates Ltd, it was eventually passed on to Ford Motor company in 1952, then onto private ownership once again.
