Africa House rests on the edge of a forested valley, with stunning views of a large pond that is surrounded by mature indigenous trees and frequented by many birds. In these tranquil natural surroundings, you can enjoy a country home lifestyle reminiscent of a faraway lodge with all the benefits of a central and secure neighbourhood.

The house is one of ten set within an elegant and established gated community in one of the most desirable areas of Nairobi for parents. Kabete Kindergarten, a feeder school to the elite British and American prep schools such as Kenton, Peponi and ISK, is within a two-minute walk of the compound. Peponi House Preparatory School is a five-minute drive and International School of Kenya is just 10 minutes away. Westlands, Gigiri and the Central Business District are all a comfortable distance for work commutes, and the lush green surroundings of Lower Kabete provide a peaceful retreat from the bustling city.

The Africa House is a classic country home designed to be large, luxurious and open. Each of the five bedrooms are suites, meaning they all have a private sitting room or study attached, as well as a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys its own fireplace and all of the rooms boast water views looking out over the valley.

A prep kitchen supplements the main kitchen and there are two large pantries and a breakfast room with lovely green views. The sitting room, dining room, family room and study all open out onto a large porch, which is the perfect place to relax and entertain with big open views that are nevertheless private.

A guest apartment and two staff quarters complete the accommodation in this quietly grand and exceptional home that is full of warmth and character. The service charge includes security and maintenance of the gardens around the house.
