Karen, Nairobi, Kenya
This is a premium residential development on Bogani Road in Karen consisting of 45 four and five bedroom luxury town houses set on individual half-acre plots. The development has been conceived as an ‘English Country Estate’ in its design, layout and aesthetic. There are 3 house types (A,B,C) to meet a diverse market and provide a village characteristic to the project.
House Type A is the most typical of the residential units of which there are 25 across the development each measuring approximately 425 Sq.M. in area. The symmetry in the building design provides a pleasing proportional balance and clear orientation throughout the rooms in the house. The ground floor planning provides for easy access from the entrance lobby to the generous living room and dining spaces and garden beyond, whilst the kitchen, study and family room are more secluded for greater privacy.
There are four spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms with the provision of a walk in wardrobe and balcony in the master bedroom. Overall the house has been designed to be a well-lit, comfortable and secure family home.
House Type B was developed to cater for open plan living single level with most of the 392 Sq.M. house occupying the ground floor with two en-suite bedrooms accommodated on the upper floor.
There are 8 Type B houses, all of which are four bedrooms with generous living and dining room spaces opening out onto the main terrace. The kitchen, study and family rooms are secluded for greater privacy. The guest and master bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, walk in wardrobes and private terraces overlooking the garden.
The house provides an outdoor – indoor living experience for those who require open plan living space and a couple of comfortable bedrooms on ground floor but when required can open the upper floor bedroom spaces for visiting guests.
House Type C is the grandest of all the houses. It includes features from the other two houses with the inclusion of an additional bedroom, bar area, larger living spaces and covered terraces.
The five bedroom house design aspires to capture all aspects of the ‘English Country Manor’ design aesthetic. It incorporates a double height entrance lobby, living room and extensively covered terraces and balconies.
The house, at 515 Sq.M., can easily accommodate larger families in comfort and provides ample space for entertaining guests both indoors and outdoors. There are 12 Type C houses.
