We drove along the exclusive Limuru Road on a sweltering Friday afternoon; the street was almost empty, except for a few cars and passers-by taking shelter from the scorching heat.
The first thing that caught our attention was a massive, grey building with blue tinted windows, we had arrived at our destination, Muthaiga Heights – an apartment complex that offers more than just a home for its residents but an enviable lifestyle in the leafy suburbs of Parklands.
The first thing you’ll notice when you enter the complex is the cool breeze, quiet and serene surroundings.
We were welcomed at the marble tiled lobby by a front-office assistant who took us on a tour of the 3 block-complex, each served with two-high speed elevators. Each floor has 11- three bedroom apartments of type A, B and C (varying sizes) and two balconies
