Hogmead: picture gallery


It looks old, and feels very well established, but Hogmead is a relatively modern house.
It dominates a very large plot, with a gravel access road, in Nairobi's leafy suburb of Langata.
Formerly a private residence, the house has had a complete makeover…
…and now offers a welcoming and distinctive retreat…
…with plenty of homely touches…
…together with reminders of where you are.
The main 'public' area at  Hogmead is the splendid covered terrace/lounge area…
…which runs the length of the house and incorporates the bar at the north end.
Although Hogmead is attentively hosted, there are plenty of private seating areas, on the terrace…
…and in the English-style drawing room.
Guests often eat on the terrace, but there's also an inside dining room.
Hogmead has six rooms in the main house, with two on the ground floor, and four upstairs.
All the main house rooms are a good size, and indvidually decorated…
…with particularly well furnished, en-suite bathrooms…
…including bathtubs.
The two downstairs rooms…
 …are accessed off the main terrace at the back of the house.
The upstairs rooms are a little larger…
…and most can be configured as twin or double rooms…
…while all have stylish and very well appointed bathrooms.
The largest room at Hogmead…
…is the Mara suite…
…which has a triple aspect and a private balcony. It occupies most of the upstairs south wing.
In addition to the main house rooms, Hogmead has seven simpler rooms in a converted stable block.
While still very smart and comfortable, these are most often used as day rooms.
