Circa 1870 with exquisite Federation era extensions and delightful Art Nouveau detail, 'The Briars' is one of Strathalbyn's landmark homes, with a strong place in the history books.

The versatile floorplan comprises 355sqm (approx 38 squares) of character filled living space boasting original features throughout. Maximising the northerly aspect, the Federation style bay window in the generous lounge room captures the winter sun and gives you a sense of the grandeur that is 'The Briars'. The interior is a time capsule of years gone by including extensive leadlight, ornate fireplace surrounds, sash windows and French Doors that open onto the wide, return verandah. There are five large bedrooms, all with their own fireplace, beautiful formal dining with a window seat, French Doors and fireplace plus a sitting room, ideal for cosy winter nights as you enjoy an open fire.
