This houses mixes a blend of traditional English castle style architecture with modern design and finishing’s. A truly spectacular piece of property. Its not every day you get a house that makes you feel you are in a 5 star hotel. Set on 2 prime beach front acres right on the sandy shores of the exclusive area of Bofa kilifi close to world class beach hotels. Double storeyed with 4 bedrooms all en suite with the world class top notch finishing and design. Magnificent fire place with a spacious lounge ideal for evening parties or just simply hosting guests. Amazing deck overlooking the ocean allowing you to watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed. Castle House was designed and built to provide light, cool, modern comfort with honestly practical security in a classical reception style home suited to the long-term ownership. The house would suit a large family with extended vacation time, or for one living fulltime at Kilifi. The house extends 450 sq m. and stands facing southeast on a lovely secure 2-acre plot with a 50m beach frontage. The back of the plot is about 50m from the Bofa Road and the location is almost perfectly convenient, being exactly one mile from town in the VIP area. (This area has the slight advantage of decently smooth roads and rather more reliable electricity and phone supply.) The plot is comfortably secure, being bounded with a wall which is covered mainly in superb Bougainvillea, making it effectively impregnable. There is an underground boat-house directly beneath the front lawn. This is accessed by a road sized tunnel which also provides the security access from the plot down to the beach. The circular gravel driveway leads to an area for easy parking in the shade of beautifully pruned Neem trees in front of the main house. The house comprises portico, entrance hall, cloakroom, expansive and inviting reception area, sitting room, full sized snooker room, four or five bedrooms depending on the owner’s needs, all ‘en-suite’, two large verandahs, two offices, large kitchen and pantry, and a basement wine cellar. There is direct access to the roof via a spiral stair in one tower. (One bedroom is downstairs, adjacent to the kitchen, and proportioned intentionally for an elderly person or wheelchair user.) All bedrooms are proportioned for tallboy wardrobes, and to be properly furnished, but the house includes two large airing cupboards as well for linen and household items storage etc. The kitchen is designed to be used either by staff alone, by the owners alone, or both. The construction of the house is massive, with over-thick walls. All materials and wiring are to European standards. All fittings are of highest quality. All flooring is porcelain, Windows and doors are all seasoned African Iroko, which is very similar to teak.
