This is your opportunity to buy newly built 3 and 4 bedroom houses for sale in Tigoni that are within a 10-acre residential and conservation development where the natural forest and wildlife within are given space to thrive. The ‘Rewildings Tigoni Development’, nestled in the heart of Tigoni’s historical tea fields and indigenous forests, has been designed around a reforestation plan where people can live in a close and balanced relationship with nature.
Six of the seven houses within the development are for sale. Three 3-bedroom houses each on a 0.88-acre plot and three 4-bedroom houses each on a 1.1-acre plot. The houses adapt to the terrain, the climate, and the characteristics of each plot, meaning no two houses are the same. Each house has been beautifully crafted and designed using high quality, natural, low carbon, sustainable materials, and has been carefully engineered to optimise indoor environmental comfort, with spaces naturally lit and well-ventilated. The homes are also carefully positioned to ensure non overlooks the neighbouring home. The houses sit on either side of a single-lane, family-friendly access road which runs along the ridge of the site. A central management company, in which all residents will hold equal shares, will oversee the running of the development.

The southern and northern boundaries are shaped by all-year-round streams. Due to the topography of the site, the main views are to the South and East. The location is strategic as the development is within a minute’s drive to Limuru Country Club, Woodland Star International School, various malls including; Two Rivers Mall, Rosslyn Riviera Mall and the Village Market, various hospitals including; Tigoni District Hospital, Aga Khan and MP Shah hospitals, various co-working spaces, cafes and restaurant including; Lingaya Co-working, The Fig & Olive and Nifty Cafe.
Tigoni is a ‘biodiversity hotspot’ (a place of critical biodiversity significance which has been degraded due to human activity). Over the past century or more, most of Tigoni’s indigenous mist forest has been cleared for tea farming, limiting the natural habitat of the Colobus monkey and other local fauna. The ‘Rewildings Tigoni Development’ plans to extend the neighbouring Kiambethu indigenous forest and to nurture an environmentally-conscious residential community that will care for and protect the land.
