The Manor House

The double storey house, set in vivid tropical flowerbeds with expansive lawns, has 9 ensuite bedrooms, a cinema room, large kitchen with store, laundry room, cloakroom, drawing room, dining room, a generous entrance hall and an upstairs gallery. There is a first floor open terrace, perfect for sundowners while watching the white egrets fly home to roost on the dam against the backdrop of the mountain and the African dusk. Just as stunning on the clear mornings is the sunrise, which silhouettes the mountain on soft pink and blue. The front of the house has a large, wrap-around veranda, used for daytime dining.

The Sanctuary

The 360-acre triangle was once a cedar forest. Evidence of the age and size of the forest can be seen in the timbers of which the house is built. There are clear views of Mount Kenya and the Lolldaiga Hills from all corners of the property. An electric fence, patrolled by a team of well-trained askaris, protects the land and its replanted hardwood, trails that have been cut through the bush, which is safe to walk and enjoy the birds, plants and insects.

The Lake

A large lake in front of the house with row boats to boot, provides safe haven to many bird species, including egrets, ibis, storks, pelicans, various ducks and breeding pairs of the crested cranes. A small herd of impala, bushbuck and reedbuck are breeding on the farm, while tree hyrax provides the appropriate night noises and the guinea fowl are becoming tamer. The clawless otter has been spotted on several occasions and we have a resident caracal, keeping down a growing population of guinea fowl and hares.

We can't wait to host you!
