$895,000 | Built c.1886 | 4 Beds | 2.5 Baths | 3,300 Sq. Ft. | 0.26 Acres
Set on a 0.26 acre property just steps from Atlanta’s historic Grant Park and among some of most prominent examples of Victorian architecture in the city, the historic Fischer House was recently reduced to $895,000. It hit the market in mid-September for $1.15 million. Built c.1886 for Julius A. Fischer, the home retains many details that will take you back to the era of the beginning of Grant Park. Ascend up onto the wide front porch with original fretwork before entering into the formal entry flanked by two large living rooms. There is more than 3,300 square feet of space with decorative fireplaces, heart pine flooring, stained glass windows and a grand staircase made of Southern Longleaf pine. Walk up the original staircase to two spacious secondary bedrooms, complimented by a beautiful back balcony space overlooking the back yard. The master bedroom features a unique turret space complimented by a chandelier and original stained glass. There are a total of four bedrooms, two full and one half bathrooms. The upstairs hallway has a door leading to an expansive walk-up attic with permanent stairs, which currently serves as a massive storage space. Out back, the magic continues with beautifully manicured gardens with walking paths featuring Victorian garden staples such as crepe myrtles, Japanese maples, canna lilies, roses, blueberries, hosta and azaleas. Adjacent to the garden is a two-car carport, modelled after the architecture of the main house, with direct access from Killian Street. This is the first time in 41 years that the historic Fischer House has been available. It’s listed for $895,000 with Compass.
