The Montebrier is a historic house in Brierfield, Alabama. It was constructed in 1853 as a plantation house in the Gothic Revival cottage orne style. It is best noted today for its unique architecture.

The Montebrier was built by S.W. Mahan. It is best noted for a number of architectural elements used into detailing the house. It has highly arched porch supports as well as wide eaves. Some say that these elements show the influence of ?The Architecture of Country Houses? publication of Andrew Jackson Downing, a well known landscape designer, horticulturalist, and writer at the time.

The Montebrier is still in the Mahan family, and is still being used as a residential home, even after centuries. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 for its architectural significance.
