A Timeless Manor in the Heart of Fort Payne Alabama!

Nestled in Fort Payne, Alabama, the Historic Leath House is encased by the breathtaking foothills of the majestic Smoky Mountains, and stands as a testament to architectural grace and enduring craftsmanship.

This exquisite estate, originally constructed in 1889 by W.P. Rice—a pivotal figure in Fort Payne’s early industrial expansion—offers a rare blend of historical significance and modern luxury.

Spanning an impressive 6,634 square feet on a lush 1-acre lot, the 7-bedroom, 6-bathroom residence invites you into a world where past and future converge. Each room narrates a story of meticulous restoration, from the opulent woodwork to the elegant lighting fixtures, capturing the essence of its era with a contemporary finesse.

The exterior, a striking visage of white accented with classic black ironwork, sets the stage for serene evenings on the expansive front porch or delightful gatherings on the charming second-floor balcony. The property’s elegant exterior is matched by its interior, where high ceilings and large windows frame stunning views of the surrounding greenery.

The estate’s proximity to vibrant cities and attractions—coupled with the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains—makes it an unparalleled retreat for those seeking solitude or the perfect space for grand entertaining.

Fort Payne, an enclave of culture and history, is just a short drive from major metropolitan areas such as Chattanooga, Tennessee, approximately an hour away, and Atlanta, Georgia, roughly two hours away. These cities offer a wealth of activities including fine dining, shopping, and entertainment options. This location provides the perfect balance between tranquil country living and access to bustling city life, making it an ideal choice for both primary residence or a majestic getaway.

This home is also rich in history, as it once housed Fort Payne’s first Mayor, C.O. Godfrey, and later, was lovingly restored by the Leath family in 1972, preserving its unique charm. Recently revitalized, it awaits the next chapter in its storied life, offering a blend of luxury, history, and a touch of a peaceful lifestyle that is increasingly sought-after.

This home is ready to offer its next steward not just a residence, but a legacy. Act now to step into a piece of history, and help write this property’s next chapter.
