Sturt Desert Pea House is an outstanding rural property on the outskirts of Alice Springs.

Built of mud brick and local stone, the house also has recycled timbers and doors from an iconic building in Alice Springs that was demolished in the 1980s.

However, the space has all the modcons you would expect in an inviting family home.

A lovely native garden with a large lawned area give a delightful outdoor space. The gazebo is home to striking swing chairs where you can sit and enjoy each other's company.

The large saltwater swimming pool is a focal point for a visit to the desert!

The beautiful old style furniture is befitting of this grand lady, allowing visitors that sense of times past with the modern fittings that make it, elegant, comfortable and inviting.

Multiple leadlight windows showcase the Sturt's Desert Pea flower.

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, mezzanine floor, balcony, outdoor BBQ area and lovely fenced, salt water pool, it is a perfect option for family get togethers, friends travelling together, your wedding gathering, wedding photos, retreats or small business events.

Sturt Desert Pea House, although on the outskirts of Alice Springs, is within walking distance of one of the iconic restaurants in Alice Springs (licensed). This restaurant offers eat in and takeaway meal options.
