The Lakes is a gated community development overlooking the Mount Kenya Forest Reserve and is well-suited for people looking to feel secure and part of a like-minded community with opportunities for hiking, trail running, fishing and mountain biking within the 30 acres. It is ideal for retirees, young families or single people.
Sales are through a 99-year lease on the mother title and a share in the management company responsible for the overall property’s upkeep. The gated community sits just 750 metres from the Nairobi–Nanyuki highway, between Naro Moru and Nanyuki, on 30-acres of pristine indigenous woodland and will feature 3 man-made lakes filled with rainbow trout, breathtaking views of Mt. Kenya and the Aberdares and a secure electric perimeter fence with a 24-hour manned gate.
Phase 1 comprises 5 fully serviced 0.75-acre plots for sale within the gated community. Each footprint has mountain views, private borehole water, an underground KPLC power connection and an all-weather access road.
Purchasers will be able to design and build their own house design within their 0.75-acre plots. However, the house design will be subject to the written approval of the vendor (to ensure it won’t be obstructive and will blend with the surrounding environment, as well as have the necessary government approvals). Alternatively, buyers can choose from one of the vendor’s 2, 3 or 4-bedroom house designs, which have the necessary approvals. Purchasers have a window of 3 years in which to build their house.
The Lakes offers an exceptional standard of living with the warmth of a close-knit community. The area has an ideal year-round climate and easy access to numerous national parks and wildlife conservancies.
The Lakes is only 10 minutes from the Nanyuki airstrip and 20 minutes from the Nanyuki Cottage Hospital, Cedar Mall, Braeburn Nanyuki International School and Nanyuki Sports Club & Golf Course.
