About the Owner
My daughter and I designed and built our house on the Kenya Coast together. We bought the plot in 2007, and have only recently finished it.
We have family connections with Kenya going back to 1900, and it was a dream to own a holiday house, that we could use. We have spent many years living there and have travelled widely. The inspiration for the house has come from Lamu with its arab and Swahili heritage.
My daughter is a writer and poet, and I am an artist.
Year property purchased: 1980's
Why this location?
My husband came to work here. We love the countryside around here, all the hills and the villages. I also enjoyed eventing for many years, and was able to keep horses.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
I am very happy to accommodate dogs on request, as there are lovely walks nearby. The property is very convenient for many attractions such as Alton Towers, and stately homes. The Peak District is on our doorstep with all that it has to offer. We are also very near to Carsington Reservoir for water sports and walking and cycling. The cottage itself is unique in that it is situated in the grounds of an Edwardian country house and benefits from a well established and lovely garden. There is also a tennis court, croquet and climbing frame and swing for children. Convenient for Ashbourne, Buxton and Bakewell, and 3 airports not far away, East Midlands, Birmingham and Manchester
