The wooden beams and panels are made of teak and gum poles from Kenya, the walls are rammed earth and the floors are stone and wood. This unique family home was built to blend into its surroundings.

The main house is central to the design with a large entrance hall leading to a study and a vaulted sitting and dining room which is warmed by two large fireplaces with glorious views. A covered veranda with a pizza oven allows for outdoor luncheons or evening entertaining. An art room with floor to ceiling windows and inspirational views is nestled below.

All rooms and main house look over the valley below, across to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and deep into the Northern Frontier.
