Gaulker Point is also known as Eleanor and Edsel Ford (son of Ford Motor Company founder, Henry Ford) House. It was constructed in Gross Pointe Shores in Detroit, Michigan in 1929.

Most of the buildings in the Gaulker Point estate were designed by Albert Kahn, while its landscapes were done by Jens Jensen. The main house was inspired by the Cotswolds? vernacular architecture. The couple instantly wanted their house to resemble like a village cottage from that part of England. It was then constructed for a year, and then fitted later on with antique parts from England like the 14th century stained-glass window medallions, paneling and stone chimneypiece found in the Library, and a 16th century overmantel.

The Gaulker Point is now open to the public as a historic house museum and gardens.
