A jewel of Arden Park is for sale. In the neighborhood just east of Boston Edison, the Frederick J. Fisher Mansion has listed through Kenan Bakirci of Max Broock Realtors for $2.17 million.

The nearly 10,000-square-foot Italian Renaissance home was designed in 1917 by famed Detroit architect George D. Mason for the eldest Fisher Brother. It’s had only a handful of owners since.

The fact that it was made for one of the family members behind the automobile titan Fisher Body is evident in every ornamental detail, all the way from the marble floors to the clay tile roof.

There’s far too many notable features in this home to mention, but we’ll just list off a few: limestone exterior, Pewabic tiles, masterful woodwork and metalwork, stained and leaded glass, panel paintings on the ceilings and walls.

A huge, ornamental sitting room with coffered ceiling.

The 24-room house includes a Florida room, library, breakfast room, recreation room, and six bedrooms and bathrooms. The property also comes with a modest (for a mansion of this stature) but well-tended grounds outside with a pergola, gazebo, and impressive landscaping. There’s even an old intercom system built into the wall with candlestick telephones.

Be sure to click the listing to see all the photos and details of this incredible home.
