Shepherd’s hut’s 100 year old House, Nanyuki
The 100 Year Old House was originally built in 1912 in Hurlingham in Nairobi and was going to be demolished, so in December 2018, it was purchased and moved piece by piece here to Nanyuki, preserving a little of Kenya’s History and a great new asset to One Stop Nanyuki’s Shepherd’s Huts. The house took many months to rebuild but is finally complete. It has three bedrooms, a kitchen, verandah and a sitting area with a fireplace. A private garden surrounds it.
