As developments are mushrooming all over the country and developers are scrambling to catch the eyes of future home owners and residents, towns in the Nairobi metropolis have taken centre stage.
The suburb of Kitengela, long ago earmarked for future plans is the ‘now’ of many developments in the area.
Located just 30km from Nairobi in Kajiado County, the property boom took off here almost 10 years ago and this town is fast becoming the go-to destination for the population exodus from Nairobi’s centre.
REAL ESTATE HUB
Kitengela is an explosive economic and real estate hub, evidenced by the residential and commercial development taking place in the area.
A major contribution to Kitengela’s growth is the continuous population growth in Nairobi, resulting in the need for housing and industrial zones outside the city.
The suburb now hosts key institutions and facilities with permanent bases from schools to hospitals, banks and leading supermarket chains that have set up shop to cater to the needs of the growing population settling around Kitengela.
Where now a number of developers are jostling for space, a slice of heaven is being served in Kitengela.
Nestled in the heart of Kitengela suburbs is Kitengela Plains.
The gated residential development of 48 four-bedroom all en suite modern villas is a finishing flourish to what this suburb has been waiting for.
The developers offer affordable, pristine units set against a backdrop of untouched natural surroundings to provide future owners the real home feeling with the highest quality of impeccable finishes.
The families that will live here are those looking for a relaxed lifestyle, quiet surroundings and natural scenery.
Having seen into the future, Kitengela Plains chose to develop here because they wanted to cater to those who want a dreamy residential destination without the huge price tag that Nairobi forces, and don’t mind to travel a little further to live in a bigger home.
“Buying the same in Nairobi’s Lavington suburb for example is at least Sh60 million, and more in other upmarket areas,” Kitengela Plains Marketing Director Sahib Sethi points out.
“Growing families are moving out of Nairobi. The city is becoming bigger, and smaller at the same time. Just outside Nairobi, the roads are being worked on, the rail stations are earmarked for development and more people are moving out. With what you would have never had the opportunity to buy in the city, Kitengela Plains presents it at a fraction of the price,” Sethi adds.
Sethi encourages people to get in early because as the urban migration continues, the prices are bound to rise.
“Developments like these are the order of the day, locally and globally. People will live outside the city because they have a quick, affordable option to get into the city for work or their other business.”
Future residents can experience extremely good value for money here with the 225 square meters offered for Sh12million, 20-25 percent cheaper than what is currently in the market considering the price per square meter.
All rooms in these homes are en suite with the finest finishing constructed by a mixed development construction leader, Landmark Holding.
In this property, which is exclusively sold by Pam Golding Properties, buyers purchase a big space, which is hard to come by nowadays. Even with the large open spaces, the highest standard of quality is maintained through and through.
Using construction companies’ relationships with suppliers, Landmark was able to negotiate the best prices on finishing materials sourced locally and internationally.
A generous backyard and two car parking are featured for each home.
Paved cabro roads lead to each home, and a large play area for children is located within the estate.
With an ode to Mother Nature, lots of green space features which inevitably invites the presence of calm.
Water will be in plenty with a borehole provided and a large overhead water tank for storage – each unit boasts solar water heating.
Walking around at night will not be a problem with the solar powered street lighting and security posts splattered through the development.
The semi-detached houses also have spacious DSQs - another assurance of the dedication to space that the developer has put forward.
Presently in the final stages, Kitengela Plains will be ready for occupation in April 2020 with 25 percent of the units already taken up.
“The area is rapidly developing, with all the needed amenities just a stone throw away,” Sethi advises.
“The early bird catches the worm and the time is now for owners and residents to take up these units, before things change.”
After paying a ten per cent deposit, buyers can then pay in up to four instalments until their time for occupation.
Taking financing into consideration, Landmark has partnered with DTB for the mortgage option for those who can secure this type of financing with the bank at a slightly higher price.
The developer has also come up with an option, on a case by case basis for those who might not be able to secure financing with confirmation of credentials, to pay in instalments over five years.
Even if people feel throttled with the few spaces left in the city and the even more strangling price tags, options are available and Kitengela Plains is offering solutions for leisure living… out of the city.
