Nakuru town holds a very special place in my heart, not only because I was born and raised around here, but because of the very many good tidings from this budding city. White House estate is a 10-minute drive from the town and five minutes from State House, Nakuru.
It is located on the Nakuru-Nyahururu Highway about 500 metres away from the well-known Kunste Hotel located on the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway. This estate has over the years seen the middle income folks settling in, but in the last five years, there has been an influx of university and college students.
This is where most newly married, young parents and youthful campus students are found. Investors and real estate developers have been busy grabbing opportunities before the window closes, as indicated by several buildings under construction, sprouting furniture and hotel businesses.
As for newcomers to Nakuru, this is your residence of choice. Why? With a budget of Sh60, bus fare to and from town is sorted out. Many residents shop at the mega supermarkets, such as Tuskys and Naivas on the Nakuru-Nairobi Highway.
Mama mbogas always crowd the road sides ready to sell. Houses here are quite affordable, with a spacious one-bedroomed unit going for Sh7,000 and a two bedroom one in the range of Sh10,000. This is why youthful individuals are always on house-hunting missions around White House.
