Olepangi House - 3 / 5 bedrooms, with private lounges
Olepangi House is our fabulous 5 bedroom house (sold on a 3 bedroom or 5 bedroom basis) with panoramic views north to the Lolldaigas and south to Mt Kenya. Tastefully decorated with antiques from the owner's far-reaching travels, this is the perfect place to reconnect with friends and family. The master bedroom enjoys it's own lounge area, separate bath and shower, dressing area and both north and south facing balconies with arguably the best views on the property.
The master bedroom is exquisite and features a 7-foot wide (king size) British Raj bed made in India dating from about 1840 and an antique Heriz carpet. The bed would have been used by a senior officer of the British military. It features stunningly carved bare-breasted angels in the headboard.
A further two bedrooms are made up as one double and one twin. When booking the whole 5 bedroom house, there is an additional double and twin room.
The large lounge area is full of interiors collected from Elizabeth and Clinton's travels with a large open fireplace, separate dining area, multiple verandahs, stunning gardens, outdoor dining and fire pit and a private kitchen with chef. A very special home from home!
