A superior investment for the discerning client, located next to Serena Beach Hotel & Spa in Mombasa. There are only 6 of them, and when you see them you will understand why they are attracting so much attention...incredible design and finishing!
A fully serviced, exclusive gated community with six villas built in Swahili Lamu style architecture and tastefully designed with authentically styled, modernized finishings.
The entire site is 2 acres in size. The villas are designed in courtyard of 6 units. Each villa is a stand alone unit of approximately 330.13 sq m or 3,538.86 sq ft. Each villa is double storied with a roof top terrace ideal for relaxation and entertainment. Each villa is equipped with an American-style two car garage complete with automatic garage doors. Each villa’s landscaped gardens is designed to ensure supreme privacy so that you can safely relax and entertain. The Lamu theme extends into the interior of each villa. From an aerial perspective one can see how everything has been thoughtfully placed, and is in harmony with the surroundings. As an added feature of the gated community features a communal pool , jacuzzi, and a fully equipped gym with steam baths, and clean, nice changing rooms. Not forgetting the children we have designed a children’s playground. Each villa has 4-bedrooms en-suite, in addition to an extra room that can be utilized as a DSQ or guest room. Looking at the ground floor plan (area:159.22 sq m or 1685.87 sq feet), you will notice that the two car
garage has been designed so that you can comfortably park your cars. One can enter their individual villa either through the garage access or through the intricately designed Lamu front door.
Off the front door entrance is a walkway that leads to an amazing enclosed verandah that open up to the sky.
Make a turn to the left of the veranda and you enter into the self contained domestic staff quarters (DSQ).
The villa architecture has ensured that there is seamless integration of outside/ inside space. The spacious open plan lounge opens up to a verandah that leads to the back yard garden. Steps from the lounge is the dining room, that flows into an American-style open plan kitchen with a walk-in pantry. The kitchen and pantry come fully equipped at an extra cost to complement your daily cooking. The kitchen can also be accessed through a second back door that opens to an in-door verandah, store and DSQ.
The residence is the ideal home to throw soirees and is also equipped with secure internet. Your villa offers can accommodate a large group of people and is designed with outdoor entertainment features in mind. From the lounge and verandah you step out into your own private landscaped garden that includes plant and rock gardens with a water feature! It has plenty of walking and relaxation spaces for your guests and children, and it is well set to provide enclaves within the space.
Now, let’s go up stairs.
The first floor (area: 115.95 sq m or 1246.33 sq ft) landing leads to 4 en-suite bedrooms designed to accommodate TV spaces, and a dressing area. The master bedroom has a changing room within with a walk-in wardrobe, and a much larger bathroom with a bath tub in addition to a shower.
