A 28-year-old Kenyan woman identified as Elizabeth Wachira has completed the construction of her Sh. 7.2 million all-ensuite mansion along Thika Road.
The mansion is a 4-bedroom all ensuite, which sits on a 40 X 90 plot with a plinth area of 189m². In the video, Edna stated that 47 Investments company charged Sh. 38,000 per m².
This means that the total cost of Liz’s house is roughly estimated to be Sh. 7.2 million exclusive of the perimeter wall, landscaping and statutory fees. The young millennial threw a lavish handover ceremony to mark entry into her new house.
The magnificent home is a two-storey flat-roof grey house with a sliding gate that leads to a meticulously maintained driveway adorned with cabro tiles. Flower pots on the front porch add to the overall beauty of the house.
The front garden offers ample parking space, suitable for three vehicles. The backyard of the house provides enough space to build a kitchen garden.
Inside the house, the white theme on the walls and the dazzling lights create a gorgeous interior that is hard to overlook.
“White is basically a very neutral colour, but it is timeless and goes with any colour,” Edna remarked.
The ground floor boasts a spacious living room area, washrooms, a guest bedroom, and a kitchen.
The kitchen area is equipped with white cabinets, grey granite countertops, and a pantry. The guest bedroom follows a white-themed design and is en-suite.
The first floor has 3 ensuite bedrooms including the master bedroom and a private balcony with a view.
The master bedroom features large windows for natural lighting, spacious wardrobes and a full-length body mirror mounted on the wall.
Liz’s rooftop terrace has terrazzo tiles flooring, water storage tanks, a cloth lines area and a washing machine storage structure. It is large enough to accommodate extra room for a chill spot.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Liz thanked her parents and siblings for the support they gave when she was building her home.
She also expressed satisfaction with the work done by 47 Investment, noting that they never disappointed her or conned her.
“I hope it encourages young ladies to go for their dreams without depending on anyone. It’s doable and it can be done,” Liz commented on the YouTube video.
