Planet House is located in Nairobi, Kenya on 3.2 acre piece of land.

The property is situated  in the Westlands area of the city approximately 3 kms from Nairobi’s Central Business District and 6 kms from the United Nations compound in Gigiri.

Over the past 25 years Nairobi has been growing at a very fast pace and the main challenge for the owner was to maintain a serene and peaceful atmosphere where each dwelling maintained it’s own privacy and green space.
