Kileleshwa

at a glance

Separated from State House by the arboretum and bordering Kilimani, Muthangari and Riverside. Walking distance or 10 minutes commute to the CBD, Westlands and the office parks in Kilimani and Ngong Road. Known as “Kilé” by Kenyan youth. From the 1950s upto about 2003, Kileleshwa was quieter and greener than Kilimani, Hurlingham or Ngong Road having bungalows set in large mature gardens. Perfect case study of how quickly a neighborhood can change once location, money and demand meet. It was a place many dreamed off thus when apartments started coming up as kenya’s middle class was growing, the allure of having a place in Kileleshwa drove demand through the roof. It is ground zero of Kenya’s middle class and, a true reflection of how fast Kenya’s middle class has grown. Also home to many expatriates.
