Mukima House Gets Ready to Celebrate 75 Years!

Mukima House gets ready to welcome in 2015, and with it the celebration of 75 years since the house was built.

Mukima Farm, or Ol Kinyei as it was originally known, was purchased in the 1930’s by Col Thomas G Chippendale Lewin OBE MCand was built on a grand scale in the 40’s, but in 1954 was deserted and lay dormant for several years.

It wasn't until 2006 that has been recently rebuilt and refurbished. Handmade cedar floors, cedar windows, some immense cedar beams and imported antique furniture from Indonesia make this house one of Kenya’s most exceptional surviving examples of a past era.
