Description

You will feel like you have stepped back in time to an English estate when you drive through the gates. Welcome to Fisher Manor, located on over seven fenced acres in the beautiful foothills of East Tennessee. Exquisite pride of workmanship shows in every inch of this 7 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom home. The estate also features an in-ground Olympic sized pool, pool house, tennis court and landscaped gardens. The centerpiece of the home is the great room, which has a vaulted wood ceiling with trusses as well as an enormous Biltmore-like fireplace. The wood-paneled den features another fireplace and a hidden dry bar that secretly opens from the wall. The spacious dining room overlooks the estate and is a great place to entertain family and friends. In the kitchen, amenities such as a Viking stove, large walk-in pantry and granite countertops create modern amenities for the chef in the family. Additional cabinet storage and counter space are available in the large butler's pantry area. A bedroom with a full bath is located on the main level, perfect for guests. Upstairs, the Master Suite has the original fireplace, several closets, a dressing room and a full bathroom. Another bedroom has its own ensuite bath, while two additional bedrooms share an additional full bath. At the end of the second floor are two more bedrooms that share another full bath. The tile in all of the bathrooms is original to the home. The finished basement has a large bonus room along with a half bath. The unfinished portion has a laundry area and loads of storage. Enjoy the stunning setting from the covered side porch off of the great room or the covered back porch! The pool house has a fireplace and also features two separate dressing room/bathrooms with showers. As part of its unique character, the home still has a functioning buzzer system that connects to the area previously used as servants' quarters. In addition, the family crest for Mr. Fisher is located at the front entrance, and the crest for Mrs. Fisher's family is in the great room. The home is constructed of stone and has the original slate roof. The flooring throughout the home is stone, hardwood and tile. The home was built in 1939 by Robert J. Fisher, Jr., the son of Athens entrepreneur Robert J. Fisher, the inventor of the Fisher typewriter and the president of Athens Hosiery Mill and several other businesses. Own a piece of history! Athens is the home of famous Mayfield's Dairy and is located on Interstate 75 one hour from both Knoxville and Chattanooga and 30 minutes from Cleveland. It is close to the Hiwassee River, the Ocoee River and many outdoor adventures such as whitewater rafting and hiking. Live the fairy tale today!
