Albert Namatjira's House is located approximately 5km west of Hermannsberg Community. It is a two-roomed cottage, constructed of hand-cut local sandstone bricks with a corrugated galvanised iron roof. Albert built this house for his wife and the house features a fireplace and chimney – which is located at the eastern end of the structure. The interior and exterior walls have been rendered and on the northern side of the structure, concrete footings of incomplete rooms to the house remain. There is also rock edging to a path leading to a gate. There is a sign out on the road pointing up the driveway and there is another house nearby with a few sheds around it.

The house was lived in by Namatjira and his family for only five years until one of their children died and so with their custom, moved out of the house and lived somewhere in Palm Valley. Relatives have cared for the house over many years since and following renovation in 1971 and conservation work in 1986, it was used as a small museum and craft outlet.
