This is delightful open plan 2.5 bedroom cottage set on a shared plot with 6 acres of indigenous forest replete with bush babies, tree hyrax and Sykes monkeys. The cottage is set amongst the trees and is blissfully peaceful and quiet. Regrettably, because of the wildlife, tenants with cats are not permitted.
One enters into a spacious open plan lounge with fireplace and French doors out onto a covered verandah. The sprawling and tiered terrace is a key feature to the property with lovely forested views. The kitchen is open plan with terrazzo counter tops and an informal dining / bar seating area. Good sized pantry and dhobi area. There are 2 good sized bedrooms, both with built in cabinetry and en-suite bathrooms. The bedrooms are on opposing ends of the L shaped cottage. There is a very useful study room which can also double up as guest room at a pinch.
The following services are included in the rent:
• Shared askari / night guard
• Shared gardener
• Bins / garbage removal
• Power back up in the form of an inverter with a battery bank.
• Staff room for one
