100 year old house, Nanyuki: 6 Guests
The 100-Year-Old House was originally built in 1912 in Hurlingham, Nairobi. When it was due to be demolished to make way for a skyscraper the owners decided to rescue the house, moving it piece by piece to Nanyuki and preserving a little of Kenya’s History. This house is stylishly decorated and now has beautiful views of Mount Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains. It has 3 bedrooms, kitchen, veranda and a sitting area with a fireplace. A private garden surrounds the house. One room is a double en suite, the other two rooms share a bathroom and can be made up as singles or doubles if requested in advance.
The house is equipped with a large fridge freezer, toaster, kettle and gas burner/oven. A cleaner can visit each day to do the washing up and clean the house if desired at no extra charge. There is also an amazing communal swimming pool at the premises and barbecue facilities.
Known as the gateway to the north, Nanyuki is ideally located for you to access the wonders of Laikipia, Shaba and Samburu. Nanyuki also offers a close base to explore the world-famous Ol Pejeta wildlife conservancy, to experience the Northern White Rhinos, chimpanzees of Sweetwaters Sanctuary, and the other abundant wildlife at one of Kenya’s foremost conservation zones. If you’re looking for more adventure, why not head into the forests around Mount Kenya and the Aberdare National Park and get lost in the forest trails and spot rhinos and giant forest hogs, or experience some of the best fly fishing in the country on Mount Kenya’s lakes or the rivers of the Aberdares. Or simply load the car with a few friends, or the family, and just take the weekend for yourself? Whatever your Nanyuki adventure is, we have a base for you.
