Deerpark Estate is located in the Miotoni area of Karen named after Karen Blixen, the Danish author of the colonial memoir “Out of Africa”, whose farm once stood on this land. The entire development of 10 units sits nestled within 5 acres of the Warai indigenous forest. On its doorstep is the Ngong Forest – one of the few remaining natural forests in Nairobi – and the Oloolua Forest, whose trails provide an oasis for residents seeking respite from the hectic city centre.

In a striking departure from the ‘country’ aesthetic that dominates high-end homes in the area - large houses with pitched roofs, more redolent of well-heeled English country homes - the Deerpark design is contemporary and angular.

Each built-up 500sqm unit is designed with connectivity to the outdoors that takes advantage of the unique location and the favorable Kenyan weather. The contemporary design features an end-to-end home with wide-open spaces, natural lighting, personal entertainment wings, and a private gym and spa for every home.

In keeping with its green surroundings, the development is also ahead of the curve sustainability-wise. Deerpark goes beyond the statutory need for energy and water conservation measures. There is solar water heating with an added ‘green’ heating feature that uses air to heat water as a back-up for overcast days, and waste water is treated and re-used for gardening.
