An outback oasis: Inside the ‘spectacular’ rare hideaway in the desert

Behind this striking grey and red exterior is an oasis in the desert – a beautiful and rare hideaway with stunning mountain views and everything needed to keep cool in the middle of the sweltering Australian outback. 

The home is located just outside of Alice springs, and near the famous desert park, with views of Tjoritja, otherwise known as West MacDonnell National Park.

This four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has an internal workshop, a study and a private lounge room as well as and open-plan living and dining area, internal kitchen and butler’s pantry.
