Utukuni - Plot for Development
A vacant plot, ripe and ready for development, in the heart of Old Lamu. Empty building plots, particularly ones as reasonably priced as this, are few and far between.
The plot, formerly the site of an old house that has now been demolished, is situated in the historic Utukuni neighbourhood – close to the Swahili House Museum, Café Bustani and the exclusive Baytil Ajaib guest house. Numerous other properties in the vicinity have been beautifully rebuilt and refurbished in recent years.
Planning regulations allow for the building of houses of traditional design over three storeys in the conservation area – and this would be a terrific opportunity to design and construct one’s own Swahili townhouse in the centre of Lamu’s UNESCO World Heritage area.
The plot measures approximately 30 ft by 40 ft – 12,000 sq feet or 111 sq metres - and is bounded on three sides by narrow streets.
