Our home

The prestigious Architectural Digest describes the house as "rising from the sere Kenyan plain like an outcropping of earth...The eight acre property (AD, Nov. 1966) with views of Mount Kilimanjaro, is a living monument to African culture. Recalling the mud mosques that Donovan encountered in Mali, the turreted and columned house ..reflects the vernacular architecture of coastal Kenya and the styles of northern Nigeria and southern Morocco...The interior is rich with textiles, pottery and paintings from over 20 African nations." The house has appeared in many books and magazines including a cover story by Marie Claire in Paris. It has been used for photo shoots, videos and documentaries, including a fashion shoot for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. The house is featured in Alan Donovan's book My Journey through African Heritage (www.africanheritagebook.com). Overlooking the Nairobi National Park, the house is an ideal base to explore East Africa from international and domestic airports only minutes away.
