Killeshwa is a quiet, upper-middle income, leafy suburb west of Nairobi City. The landscape is a mixture of aging, colonial houses built in the 1950’s and 1960’s and modern apartments and townhouses. The Government holds quite a significant part of Kileleshwa. Most senior civil servants have been housed in Kileleshwa in spacious bungalows and maisonettes, with Kileleshwa differing from neighboring Kilimani, Hurlingham, or Lavington in the land size per house. Until quite recently, Kileleshwa houses occupied three-quarters to an acre of land. The suburb is also quieter and greener than Kilimani and Hurlingham. At the border of Kileleshwa and Kilimani lies State House, the official residence of the President. Location: 4 Kilometers West of Nairobi's City Centre.
