I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

The suburb of Unley is often associated with magnificent and opulent houses, but just up Cross Road at Urrbrae is a beautiful bluestone mansion that outshines the jewels in Unley's crown.

The adjacent Drawing Room has been restored as much as possible to its original condition, with restored wallpaper, original curtains, and a tapestry firescreen. It also features a grand piano which is used on special occasions.
A short distance south east of Urrbrae House you can also find The Coach House, built in the 1880's to house stables and a hayloft. The Coach House is not normally open to the public, although some school tours are arranged.
While Urrbrae House is available for viewing at specific times by the public, consider going on a free guided tour (held on the first Sunday of each month) if you would like to hear more detail about the history of this beautiful residence.
