This is a unique opportunity to buy one of the best-placed properties in Nanyuki that comprises 42.5-acres of land. The Ontulili river wraps around a large part of the land and is full of trout. The owners have also created a beautiful pathway through the forest that is home to mature indigenous trees and incredible birdlife and wildlife including bushbuck, duiker, caracal & serval cats. The property consists of a 3 bedroom main house, a 3 bedroom guest cottage and staff quarters for 4.
The main house was built in the 1940’s and has since been extended adding on a second floor but keeping with it all the original charm and style. The house opens into a large hallway that leads to a spacious dining room that looks out to the front of the garden. There is also a bright living room with a large fireplace that leads out to a stunning covered verandah. From the verandah, you can enjoy the most impressive views of Mt. Kenya. The home has a large modern country style kitchen with ample storage and a walk-in pantry. The ground floor also has two bedrooms that share a bathroom. Both of which have built-in storage and large windows looking out onto the garden. A central staircase leads you upstairs to a light-filled and expansive master bedroom ensuite with double doors that lead out to a large balcony, a separate office and a fresh and open living space that sits between the master bedroom and the office.
The house is surrounded by vast acres of a well-kept lawn and an impeccably well kept landscaped garden that captures both the subtle evening light and bright early morning sunlight. Features of the gardens include gravelled areas, a variety of flower borders, established, indigenous trees, an extensive vegetable garden & orchard as well as beds of shrubs.
Beyond the main house is a charming cottage with an open plan kitchen/sitting/dining room and three ensuite bedrooms that can be used for guests or tenants. The cottage also enjoys its own garden and privacy.
Some of the available amenities include a large safari store, an additional smaller store, a workshop, a carport for 2/3 cars, and a borehole. There is also an additional fenced field that can be used for horses or livestock or the building of additional houses.
It is also key to note that the Nanyuki-Meru highway will soon be a dual carriageway and that there is a possibility to also purchase 9-acres on the other side of the river giving you a buffer against future developments that may spoil the view and tranquillity.
