ABOUT THE MANSION
The Charles T. Fisher Mansion is is one of Detroit’s most iconic homes. Built in 1922 for Charles and Sarah Fisher, the English Tudor-style mansion’s 18,000 square feet are filled with ornate woodwork, historic details, and, of course, great art. Some of the home’s highlights include a solarium floored with custom Pewabic tile, a hand-carved Italian marble fountain, a limestone fireplace carved to represent each of the four seasons, a basement pub and vault (which once functioned as Prohibition-era liquor storage), a secret tunnel leading to the backyard carriage house, a custom-designed pipe organ, and 50 hand-painted chinoiserie medallions.
