Exploring Fontanel Mansion & Farm

Jan Duke with nashville.about.com recently wrote an article Exploring Fontanel Mansion & Farm, in which she describes the 27,000 square-foot mansion, shuttles and tours available 7 days a week.

Fontanel Mansion was built for Barbara Mandrell and her family back in the 1980’s and they owned the 136-acre property until 2002 when it was sold to its current owners, Dale Morris and Marc Oswald. Country Music Fans might recognize the mansion from CMT’s hit show, Gone Country or any numerous of other photo and video shoots. One of the most impressive pieces of information about the mansion is that local architecture firm Tuck-Hinton had a hand in its design and building. But then again, if you know anything about the Tuck-Hinton team then you will know that these guys have been involved in the building of some of Nashville’s most impressive structures that include; the Adventure Science Center, Bicentennial Mall State Park and the Country Music Hall of Fame just to name a few.”
