Property developer, Mizizi Africa Homes has today announced it is adopting new house designs for its projects to tap into a growing population of savvy millennial buyers.
The developer is adding multi-functional spaces to key features like Master Bedroom, sunken lounge, dining area and windows and providing an extra room to all the units due for construction in 2020.These units will also come with flat roofs to provide more outdoor space for recreation.
Mizizi Africa Homes Chief Executive Officer, George Mburu said the company is responding to the needs of its customer’s mostly younger families and first-time home buyers seeking modern responsive houses.
“The new design is inspired by the creative nature and desire of this generation to live in a better place. The extra spaces give them flexibility they need to personalise the house the way they want. We are putting in modern features that suit their life,” said Mburu.
The extra rooms can be converted to home office and the rooftop can be turned into a retreat or an entertainment spot.
Units will be fitted with reliable internet to support seamless connectivity.
The developer said the new designs will be cheaper compared to stand-alone units with reduction in cost of roofing that will be beneficial to both the developer and customers.
“This move is deliberate because we want to continue playing an integral role in provision of affordable housing especially for first-time home buyers and younger families,” said Mburu.
He added, “Moving forward we are adopting the new design on all our future projects due to the outstanding advantages both to the developer and the client.”
New projects that will adopt the new design include Sss. Waiganjo with 16 units on exit 13, Eagle estate (Exit 13) with 14 units, Ostrich Estate (Kenyatta Road) with 26 units and Asali Estate (Kangundo Road) with 26 units.
They come in 3-bedroom bungalows and 5-bedroom maisonettes with a price range of between Sh. 4.2 Million and Sh 6.5 Million respectively.
