Brindabella Station in Brindabella Valley listed

Brindabella Station, the onetime home of author Miles Franklin who wrote My Brilliant Career, has been listed for sale through McGrath Estate Agents Woden.   

The property sits on the ACT and NSW border. More than $1.8 million is expected for the property that failed to sell on 2010 marketing.

It has been listed by vendors Brian and Guillermina Barlin who are selling after three decades plus ownership. They bought it from the late journalist Richard Carleton. 

It comes with restored rendered rammed earth five-bedroom homestead, built in 1900 after the original house burnt down in the 1800s.

The property, on the Goodradigbee River, also has two two-bedroom cottages and a fishing hut.

The property is 66 kilometres from Canberra at 308 Brindabella Valley Road.

Brindabella’s most famous resident Miles Franklin came to the property as a baby in the late 1870s when the farm was 100,000 hectares (250,000 acres).
