For Sale Ksh 450,000,000KES - Land
Situated on on the Northern shores of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley are two beautiful 70 Acres land parcels. These parcels of land next to each other are FREEHOLD and comprise of approximately 35 acres each, with Government road access on two boundaries.
In 2005, development of the land took place, with the farm being marked out into one hectare plots for farming. The farm’s soil is of the best quality anywhere around the lake, and goes to great depth. It is very slightly sloped and thus there is perfect gradient to prevent flooding or erosion.
Current development comprises:
- 18 hectares of Rhodes grass which, in this climate, avails two crops annually of prime quality hay
- A further hectare of Eucalyptus cameldulensis which was planted in October 2008
- A hectare of neatly and ideally spaced Yellow Fever Acacia trees planted in March 2010 which are indigenous to the area
- One hectare of neatly and ideally spaced Gravillea trees planted in October 2011 as an investment for the timber industry
7 acres comprises of:
- Vegetable gardens
- Citrus groves
- Domestic gardens
- Staff quarters in the form of four single roomed accommodation and two double-roomed accommodation.
The above in the 7 Acres have solar electricity, a large sheltered sitting/cooking area, a hygienic long-drop toilet and a shower providing solarized hot water and cold water.
Water is supplied through a borehole and solar powered pump, providing 2,500 litres of water an hour on. The valid water permit is for a maximum of 40 m3 per day, but there is no drop-down in water level at this rate. The evidence from the neighbouring farm, who source from the same underground supply, is that the whole property can easily be irrigated on an intensive horticultural scale if needed. Two PVC main lines, varying in size from 4inch to 3inch, exist underground in two parallel lines perfectly spaced for irrigation systems to be installed. Foundations for a 320,000 liter water tank at the highest point of the property are in place. Nine water troughs are in place; gravity fed with water from a top tank.
