What you will Love about this property
Kibagare Valley just off Loresho Ridge is one of the most lush posh areas to live in Nairobi. It’s rare to find homes on such large plots in Nairobi these days. Kibagare Valley is the address to a few rich and famous who value privacy.
This is a heritage home with lots of character that you don’t find in new builds these days. The bungalow has an inviting large living room with a built-in sunken seating area featuring a gorgeous show piece fire place. The 2 level living area has beautiful wooden floors. The living room opens up to a beautiful covered outdoor patio space which is great for entertaining. Next to the living room space is a large dining area with lots of great light through the large windows.
The house has 5 bedrooms which are all quite versatile. The current tenant is only using 3 bedrooms as living spaces. Out of the other 2 rooms one is being used as a linen room and the other as a home office. This could very easily be converted into a large nursery as it connects to the master bedroom.
The master bedroom has a high attic ceiling. The room which is spacious has its own walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and shower. The master bedroom also opens up to its own private outdoor patio area overlooking the garden.
This is a stand-alone property that has 2 rooms, its own bathrooms and kitchenette. This could easily be converted into a guest wing.
The Art Studio:
This is a stand-alone wooden structure that contains a very large artist’s studio of approx. 1000 square feet. The floor boards from the studio are from the original Karen Blixen adding to its historical value and character. The previous owner, the famous Kenyan artist Mary Collis used the studio for over 40 years during the time she owned the home. This would make a great space for art lovers or to convert to bachelor pad for an older child.
The house sits on a gorgeous 2.5 acre plot which gently slopes to the Mathare river. The garden is very well kept with trees that are easily over 5 decades old. This will make for a great area to entertain. The current tenants only use approx. 1 acre out of the entire 2.5 acre plot. This would also be great for redevelopment.
