Five Star Segera launches new ‘Farmhouse’ Villa


(Posted 09th August 2019)


Set with a direct line of sight of Mount Kenya, is the newly launched Segera Farmhouse adding a new dimension of luxury to the property. Its magnificent private gardens enjoys sweeping vistas of this magical land and the incredible animal life that wanders over it.

Dating back to the 1940s, the original homestead has been brought back to life with an exquisite refurbishment; beautifully restored furniture, exposed wood-beamed ceilings and voluminous living areas give the Farmhouse a serene and open feel. Shafts of light wash down chalky-white Lamu plaster walls, ebony floors reflect light in the monochromatic black and white palette, tones of bone, stone and sage are anchored by organic timber in a warm, contemporary farm-style aesthetic. Plants breathe new life and movement into the farmhouse bringing Segera’s lush gardens indoors, and the beautiful new pool, with its day beds and outdoor living area, invite comfortable lounging in complete privacy during either day or under the star-canopied nights.

Beyond the spacious Master Suite, a fireplace and library lounge enjoy views of wildlife, savannah plains and Mount Kenya through large, floor-to-ceiling, conservatory windows. Leather, mohair and crisp linen converse with heirloom heritage furniture and extraordinary East African expeditionary antiques.

In keeping with Segera’s unique style, old and new coexist in comfortable companionship. The Family Lounge, with its paneled walls and shelves full of art, books and curiosities, invite guests to relax in front of the roaring fire in the evening or even during colder days. The Dining Room, Living Area and Farm Kitchen are designed both for intimate get-togethers and larger gatherings in elegant yet unfussy interiors. Here does tasteful simplicity literally feed the soul. Guests enjoy the serenity of space but also the subtle flow of everything feeling as if it belongs exactly where it stands or hangs on the walls. It is a place where the luxuries of home coexist with the boutique conveniences of a luxury eco-resort.

The Farmhouse provides a perfect place for families, and those wishing to feel a true sense of home, whilst exploring one of the most magnificent safari landscapes on the planet. This is where one can feel both immersed in the magic of the Kenyan wilderness, yet can remain relaxed and pampered in the private sanctuary of this beautiful home-away-from-home.
