California may be home to Hollywood house tours and the star-studded walk of fame, but for visitors to Nashville, a tour of the Fontanel Mansion gives country music lovers a chance to check out how the famous Barbara Mandrell used to live.
The 27,000 square-foot luxury home set on a plot of lush gardens and spacious green lawns, has impressive vaulted glass ceilings, more than 20 rooms, 13 baths, five fireplaces, two kitchens, and in true country style, even an indoor shooting range. In addition to family photos from the Mandrell family collection, Fontanel is also filled to the brim with items from Kenny Chesney, Gretchen Wilson and other contemporary artists the current homeowners manage.
Fontanel Mansion is located at 4225 White Creek Pike off the Old Hickory Boulevard of I-24 West. Tours take place daily and tickets cost $24 for adults, $22 for seniors, and $14 for children 6 to 15 years old.
