A Sh1 billion development project christened The Amara Ridge launched last year for high-end consumers by Cytonn Real Estate Investment is set for completion in three months time.

Construction is over and what remains is finishing. The 10 homes on offer at Sh102 million sit on the five-acre parcel, with each five-bedroomed villa occupying a half-acre.

They are located along the Forest Edge Road, opposite Bomas of Kenya. Offering its residents a luxurious living that has two signature home designs —classic and modern—the development boasts distinct features including classical moulding facades, a clubhouse with a pool, playground, a gym and an entertainment area offering a perfect recreational setting.

Amara Ridge has done well due to its proximity to most facilities such as schools and shopping malls and its close proximity to the Bomas of Kenya indicates the high potential for capital appreciation.

Speaking during an open day for visitors on Saturday, Cytonn Chief Investment Officer Elizabeth Nkukuu said trends show gated communities are preferred due to increased sense of security, community living and shared amenities that help improve the quality of living.

The open day gave clients a chance to see the progress of the development and look forward to future of such developments by Cytonn Real Estate.

“The company’s products range from the high-end, such as the Amara Ridge in Karen, which is 100 per cent sold three months to completion; Situ Village, an upcoming gated community in Karen; to the middle -come groups such as The Alma in Ruaka, which is offering a comprehensive lifestyle and a secure community to future families,” Nkukuu said.
