The world has a handful of iconic, historical hostelries. Raffles in Singapore, The Victoria Falls Hotel. The Muthaiga Country Club in Nairobi. And of course The Plantation Club in the Avenues. This unique property has come on the market for the first time in many years. All the grace and glory of the turn of the last century is captured in this intensely private members club, with an excellent tenant offering a great return on investment.
A series of interlocking rooms all give out onto generous verandahs, soothed by the sound of flowing water, leading to lush, secluded gardens bright with tropical flowers and birdlife. The drawing room with its grand piano. The library, discreet and calm. The private boardroom with its glass wall and view of the giant koi and their fountain. The elegant, timbered dining room. Discover courtyards, unexpected visas, cosy chatting corners. All adored by those who have arrived or are about to who treasure their membership of the Club.
Not just the property but the actual business is for sale. An added advantage is the block of individually owned bachelor flats adjacent to the Club, ideal for providing self-contained accommodation at prices that compete with Airbnb, come up for sale periodically. Three are currently on the market, at competitive prices.
