If you've made the effort to travel all the way to be in the desert, this property allows you to be immersed within the landscape, but with all the luxury features you require whilst on business or holidays.
Conceived and built by a local designer, the house at once opens to the landscape whilst using environmental features to keep out the harsh desert climate. Made in silver 'min orb' corrugated zink and with extensive use of double glazed glass, its sleek minimal design both compliments and works environmentally in its natural surrounds.
Just seven minutes drive from town, the property is situated at the base of the magnificent Macdonnell mountain ranges. Nestled amongst five acres of bushland, the house is fully secluded from neighbours on all sides.
The lounge/dining and both bedrooms have uninterrupted views of the mountains through generous glass sliding doors which retract fully into the walls to let the outside in. Security fly screens on theses sliding doors allow you to sleep with the feel of the desert, but with the security of being protected from the elements.
Fully air-conditioned, as well as equipped with two wood burning heaters, the house features polished cement floors throughout. Both bedrooms have limestone finished bathrooms and walk in robes.
The second bedroom is separated from the main house by a six meter breezeway verandah area which includes a dining setting for eight. The breezeway is equipped with ceiling fans and dimmer lights to create your own atmosphere.
The kitchen has six a burner Smeg gas stove, stainless steel bench tops and appliances and is fully equipped excluding microwave for all self catering needs.
Quality and stylish furnishings feature throughout from eco Australian designer 'Planet Furnishings' of Sydney, with solid wood king size beds in both bedrooms. The second bedroom has an additional wall mounted flat screen television for added luxury.
The entrance to the property is via your own private driveway which leads to the house. The driveway and house surrounds are equipped with night lighting to assist evening access. Please note that as the house is newly built, it does not appear on the google earth photographs associated with the map on this site.
The property was designed to give guests a unique experience that embraces the beauty of the desert whilst maintaining a high standard of luxury. We welcome you to share the beauty that Central Australia offers in this wonderful new home.
The only element the house does not offer is a private pool. However, the Alice Springs local pool has magnificent views of the ranges, offering both indoor and outdoor facilities and is a wonderful local experience not to be missed whilst visiting.
Rental is available for a two night minimum booking.
For two bedrooms the rate is $300 per night.
