Lamudi has compiled a list of the 10 most luxurious houses in Kenya listed on the real estate portal. The houses are spacious, are on enormous plots and feature everything needed in this category of the market. However, it is not only newly-built properties that make the list. Older villas with romantic architecture and well-maintained gardens can also be found.

Giraffe Manor is set on 140 acres of indigenous forest, and the inherent beauty encompasses the grounds and the building. Giraffe Manor was built in 1932 as a house for Sir David Duncan of the Mackintosh Family, famous for ‘Mackintosh Toffee’. The house was built using the architectural design of a Scottish hunting hotel. The west side had a view of the nearby Ngong’ Hills, while the south had a view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, a long way off on the Tanzanian border. Giraffe Manor has changed hands over time, but it fully retains the feel and the beauty of its initial days.
Dan Karua, Managing Director of real estate portal Lamudi Kenya, said: “The rise of luxury homes has been facilitated by the growing middle class, who are willing to pay premium prices for high-end houses. Developers are tapping into this market segment, which has a higher spending power, by constructing houses with quality finishes and fittings with a modern feel.”
“Clifford is quite knowledgable and a great listener. He gave us very good advise regarding our proposed building project. His experience in the real estate development, especially in the coast region is excellent.
While we postponed our project till next year, we will definitely call upon him when we start the project, i.e. plans, approvals, supervision etc.”
Giraffe Mano’s rooms vary in size. There are six rooms in the original house and four in the new building that replicates the original manor. The six suites are named after key figures that shaped its history during the Melville’s tenure, including those first Rothschilds, Daisy, and Marlon.

The interior designs retain the look of 1932, as oakwood finishes arise from the neo-classical architecture of the era. This forms an exciting contrast as the colour scheme keeps close to the nature emulating the soft, warm brilliance of the surrounding Savannah grassland. The arches on the openings have also not changed since then. The decor is gorgeous and the interior is adorned with tasteful giraffe artwork and sculptures.

Enkaji is a Maasai name for a house. The houses are traditionally built on a simple frame structure the shape of a loaf using materials like twigs, soil, cow dung, and grass. The frames are made of timber poles fixed directly into the ground, these being interwoven with smaller branches and twigs placed closely together to form a matrix. Hard wood from Oiti trees is used due to its resistance to termites.
Stark contrast is evident all through the concrete, the whitewashed walls and timber carefully and almost seamlessly weaving to form the vertical and horizontal elements of the building that ultimately encompass the building’s weather barrier. The austere and minimalist facade is broken a little bit by the functional windows.
The estate itself is built as an American suburb. The 40 houses settled on the estate are enclosed behind an electrified wall fortified by 1.5 meters of no-man’s land, rigged with cameras, floodlights, and motion detectors. The interior gates are operated via intercoms from the houses or via remote control.

“Fellow builders, My name is Joseph. I am writing this letter to acknowledge the excellent work provided by Mr. John Doda of the Distinct Architypes/ JOFROK BC Consultants in the design and planning of a five story, 40 unit apartment building in Kitengela Kenya.
beginning such a construction structure starts with a good architecture. Given the magnitude of this project, I reluctantly hired Mr. Doda but now I am glad I did. The details had to be so precise that the structure could fit within the zoning codes of FEMA and the Kajiado County Building certification agencies while still maintaining the appeal to residents and the neighborhood.
The project was to have a 24 car garage and a water bore. Working with John has been a pleasure as he listened to the needs and worries of my thoughts for the building. He assured me and the work began.
From the beginning and all through the inspections we have had little or no questions regarding the constuction design. The details of the architectural drawings, construction sketches, structural layouts and quantity surveyor have helped the construction process move along a speedy route to completion and within budget.
The prototype model is a masterpiece. I look forward to working with John and Distinct Architypes in future projects. It will be exciting to see the creativity in their future designs as it is in this current project with every stage getting closer to a realized vision.
I therefore recommend John and Distinct Architypes to anyone who has a building or remodeling project and is in need of an architect who maintains honesty and professional integrity at all times in making your vision a reality.
The decor inside is inspired by the authentic upmarket European look, accent walls in the drawing and dining room have been carefully wallpapered, while key statements are in the form of Kenyan artwork and artefacts. Rooms are uniquely dressed in a chic contemporary form. The drawing and sitting rooms have a dressed stone fireplace in each, and the study is intimate and warm. Mahogany flooring runs all through the ground floor of the house. A grand ensuite bathroom has a signature slipper bath over which a cut glass chandelier hangs. All of the ensuites are tiled to a high spec with cosmopolitan sanitary ware. All internal doors are of Shaker-style proportions with high-quality ironmongery, with the main door made of bamber coffee wood with doom wood panels.
Nairobi’s real estate scene has grown steadily over the past few years. This has resulted in development of rather majestic houses which don’t hold back in opulence. These new entrants, plus the old gems from the colonial era, are the driving forces on the Nairobi luxury housing scene.
Based on the above, The Karen Enkaji House takes a parabolic shape organized around a covered terrace as the focal point with centralism as the main concept borrowed from the traditional planning of the Maasai Enkaji. Other conspicuous features incorporated in the design and symbolic of the ancient African architecture include the use of threshold and circulation spaces as living areas, as well as a recessed oblique entrance with a covered porch, thus creating an inviting reception space as you access the house.
The house was specifically designed to serve a large family or double as an ambassadorial house with large dinner parties. The interior was furnished by Bo Concepts, who provided very elegant furniture. The house can easily accommodate 200-250 guests and boasts a BBQ area gathering space.
The main façades of the building face East and West, contrary to conventional planning in Nairobi, where the larger side of a building is positioned to face North and South. This was intentionally done to facilitate passive thermal control, capturing and retaining sun heat and leading to stable temperatures throughout the house. A smart building system has been incorporated in the building, remotely controlled in a computer program to monitor certain features in the house including lighting fixtures, audiovisual, security, and the lawn irrigation system.
African Heritage House is basically a museum of African art. The house was built between 1989 and 1994 and had no master plan according to Donovan. He simply finished the plan as he went on.
The name Hogmead alludes to many warthogs who visit the gardens with their small piglets, as well as ‘mead,’ a drink traditionally enjoyed on honeymoons.
“Qchora installed a shade sail for my patio. I was provided with a variety of fabric options, and prices. The pro’s and con’s of each were clearly advised in order for me to make a sound decision. The final outcome is spectacular and exactly as I had imagine.
For my second project, I had made outdoor furniture and called Qchora to provide me with cushions. I received a variety of material options to choose from and was able to select my specific dimensions for seat and back cushions.
I later used Qchora again to install a metal ladder for easy access to my roof. Again, I received the same courteous and professional service. Their prices are fair and the quality of the workmanship is of a high standard.
I highly recommend this company for all projects around your home or business.”
For the cold season, the house has eight fireplaces – a circular space on the platform, a fireplace in the living room, another in the study, 4 in the bedrooms and a sauna at the other end of the patio. The patio is connected on the ground floor of the house establishing three main parts – living room, kitchen, and study/library, which are situated in continuity and without doors between them. The living room is fashioned with a double space that connects the two floors through a staircase built with planks of cedar. Linear cupboards and the line furniture designed specifically for the house are made of African mahogany.

In the upmarket Rosslyn, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by a myriad of luxurious homes, but one of them stands out epically. Lone Tree Villas House No. 3 is an exquisite five-bedroom house built in classic Dutch style. It is designed by leading Nairobi architect, Tom Bowman, and the interiors are done by Karen Baillie of Pink Interior Designs.
A softly sloping roof binds the three buildings together, and an opening in the supporting wall leads into the walled courtyard. Limestone blocks were hand-cut and distressed to give the walls the appearance of ruins. One two-storey block situated on the lowest part of the site is oriented to take in views across the forest valley, with family bedrooms and a livingroom on the upper floor, and a guest suite below.
The house is discreetly camouflaged by its own facade, an almost bunker response to the street, and opens up to the inside into a modular framework that references its own concrete formwork. It is a one-form building, the architect’s signature in simplifying the concept and occupation of space. The ‘box’ divides the site into graduated sectors, a main public area and an expansive backyard that opens up into a pool area and unfettered horizon experience.
The building materials for the house were sourced locally and abroad, with the bulk coming from China.

Traditional Mali architecture is richly expressed by use of exposed longer-than-usual rafters echoing the exposed timber beams and framing openings with thick piers as in traditional houses. The low-pitch butterfly roof allows the building to maintain its flat roof aesthetic. Curtain walling, openings framed by thick piers, cantilevers, and strong vertical and horizontal earthen-textured facades complete this interpretation of African architecture.
Gigiri hosts one of the largest expatriate communities in Africa. It is also home to the United Nations offices in Nairobi, while being considered one of Kenya’s most posh suburbs. Here, there is a chiselled limestone house built into a hillside and topped by a heavy sloping roof.
With panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, this six-bedroom house sits on a two acre piece of land in a secure and serene neighbourhood. It is the first house outside Nairobi to make it to the list. Apart from the beautiful ocean views, this luxurious property has a large outdoor swimming pool and a garden filled with exotic trees. Inside, the house offers state-of-the-art interior designs and decor, with granite and bamboo used for the countertops and flooring.
The walls are painted in the style of Kasena people of Northern Nigeria, while some rooms have painting styles from the Kenyan coast. The decorative poles set across the ceiling are Mangrove roots from the Kenyan coast.

The first sight here – Well, apart from the tall gorgeous giraffes, is the elegant brick facade wrapped in vibrant climbing ivy and the spacious outdoors. Giraffe Manor is one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings. It is located approximately seven kilometers southwest of the C.B.D., the upmarket Karen neighbourhood. This plus the gorgeous occupants, towers of Rothschild giraffes, makes it rather unique. The giraffes are known to delight in sticking their long necks through the windows to be fed treats. The giraffes date back to 1970’s when Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville first adopted and orphaned Rothschild, and then another. Soon enough, they had a sanctuary for the endangered species. The giraffes are nurtured on the estate until they are ready to be reintroduced into the wild.

Alan Donovan is the owner and a designer of the house. He is also an art collector, so rightfully the house is filled with artefacts from all over Nairobi, which he has spent decades collecting. In his own words, he is an incarnation of an early man: “To those outside its magnetic spell, Africa may seem incomprehensible, fathomless, in the primordial past. Yet, wherever we are in the world, every one of us had an African ancestor that much is almost certain. Africa is the cradle of humanity,” from his book My Journey Through African Heritage.
London-based Jonathan Woolf Architects designed Lost Villa as a home for 11 inhabitants. It comprises three blocks that cluster around a cloistered courtyard, forming separate but linked spaces for immediate family, grandparents, and household staff.
