Stunning 8.8 acre plot in the heart of the Hardy Estate in the suburbs of Karen, Nairobi. This glorious property is rich in character and history and dates back to the 1940’s. The house was built by a famous wildlife photographer Armand Denis. Michaela Denis was instrumental in renovating the property and wrote several novels including Leopard in My Lap (1955) and Ride on a Rhino (1960); said books include descriptions about this unique and beautiful home.

The main house is double storey and comprises 4 bedrooms, there is also a detached 2 bedroom guest cottage. The veranda, living room and dining room are all on the first floor where one can enjoy unparalleled views of the Ngong Hills. The house is full of light and boasts high ceilings and original cedar wood floors. One of our favourite areas of the property is the beautifully secluded swimming pool set on the second tier of the garden.

Nature lovers will revel in the mature indigenous forest which occupies the lower sloped section of the property which borders the Mbagathi River.

• The property includes generous staff quarters for four with kitchen, shower and two bathrooms
• Covered garage for two vehicles and ample guest parking.
• The property receives mains electricity and water.
