Tea House - Furnished Apartments in Nairobi

An easy 20-minute drive from Runda brings you to The Tea House, a spacious home with a rural feel that sweeps you away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. A large porch and striking, ivy-clad pagoda, fitted with comfortable Indian- and Lamu-style daybeds, offer the perfect spot for enjoying green views of tea fields. The property sits on four acres, has a spring and long walking paths through a mature, private indigenous forest.

Inside, the drawing room’s high ceilings and carefully selected furnishings create an elegant yet cosy atmosphere, enhanced by a beautiful, large fireplace with a raised hearth, the best seat in the house on cool evenings. One of the home’s most interesting aspects is its wide hall, which can serve as a library cum atrium, with dark wood bookshelves and plenty of natural light from above.

The large master bedroom is furnished with a desk and sofa, as well as a solid sleigh bed. It also has his and her dressing rooms and a large en-suite bathroom. The home has a guest bedroom that is large enough to become two rooms. The cosy, well-equipped kitchen, opening out to a kitchen garden, completes this lovely wood clad home. It is a stones throw from the Limuru Golf and Country Club, stables and warm country restaurants.
