Flat wall coming down to a 90 degree angle with a flat floor. Grand double stairs up to the second floor... nice SQUARE rooms off the ring around the balcony. Perhaps a nice garden outside the fancy main doors.

...another idea. If you do the Bounty Hunter story, you can pick up the title Baron(ess). I was thinking it would be neat-o, if other classes could pick up noble titles as well. Perhaps unlocking 9/9 your Alderaan stronghold, and getting your Completion over 90% could unlock the title Count(ess).
This sounds great to me for an interior layout! The central room would be great for a ballroom, the square rooms on the side to serve as offices, bedrooms, etc. I'd love there to be a nice outdoor garden part where I can put topiaries and statuary, ideally with a small balcony looking out over it. Think the fantastic view from the Shining Star Cantina, pubside Alderaan.

I'm also pleased by how many people like this thread, I was afraid my original post was too long and detailed and would turn some people off. Also, since I started this, we've had the Umbara stronghold become unlocked via in-game activity. Therefore the idea of an Alderaan rep and quest to unlock it doesn't seem as farfetched as it did at the start.

Alderaan is without a doubt, the next stronghold I really, really want.
...I mean, except for maybe a Manaan Stronghold.

"but wait... you just got a Manaan stronghold!"
"no. we really didn't."
