  • 30 foot indoor heated (solar) swimming pool.
  • Covered parking area outside with space enough for multiple vehicles.

Spectacular use has been made of natural rocky outcrops which have been built into the lower level of the structure, creating a natural “cave” entrance to the lower guest bedrooms. This, combined with the meticulous design and construction style, give a delightfully rustic feel to the house.

All the accommodation, including most of the garden is protected from wildlife encroachment by an electric fence. An electric fence also extends along the top boundary of the property.

The property has an aircraft parking area, with an aircraft to the shared Kenya Wildlife Service grass airstrip (25m x 950m) +500m – know as “Shimba Park”.

The sale will include various machinery (including a tractor/grass cutter for airfield maintenance), maintenance equipment/spares/staff vehicle etc).

This property has massive untapped potential and with the right owner, can be utilized in several ways to realize that potential.

  • As sit sits on the highest point on the coastal belt, this property offers a rare opportunity for wind energy power generation.
  • With its cool weather, the property is ideal for a hospital/medical facility.
  • Continue as an exclusive, tranquil top end private residence.
  • Transformed for commercial use – i.e. exclusive high end hotel/spa/conference facility/university/research centre, etc.
  • Conversion into a private wildlife and forest conservation sanctuary.
  • Split or sub-divide into a number of high end individual building plots/gated community, etc.
  • With the imminent construction of the Dongo Kundu by-pass, linking Mombasa west to the South Coast, the value of this and other properties within the South Coast will  be trippled, with high end constructions in anticipation of the planned by-pass already happening.
