Description

Standing on a 360-acre private conservancy, with a wonderful view of Mount Kenya, the fully staffed Mukima House comfortably accommodates 14 people in seven en-suite bedrooms. The house was built on a grand scale in the forties and has been recently rescued, rebuilt and refurbished. Handmade cedar floors, cedar windows and immense cedar beams make this house one of Kenya's most exceptional surviving examples of a past era. Here you can unpack your bags and spend your holiday relaxing in the luxury and privacy of your own magnificent home, visiting the many local parks and amenities as and when you please.

The double-storey house, set in vivid tropical flowerbeds with expansive lawns, features seven en-suite bedrooms, a games room, house office with a broadband satellite connection, a large kitchen with store room and laundry room, a cloakroom, drawing room, dining room, a generous entrance hall, and an upstairs gallery.

The first floor open terrace is 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 in soft pink and blue. The front of the house also boasts a large wrap-around verandah, used for daytime dining.
