The house’s architecture is typical of late 19th century bungalow architecture, including the spacious rooms, horizontal layout verandas, tile roof and stone construction typical of scores of residences built throughout European suburbs of Nairobi in early decades. Karen Blixen called the house “Bogani” or “Mbogani” meaning a house in the woods, and occupied it until 1931. The house was occupied by different people including a British army man who later passed it to his daughters .The house was purchased in 1964 by the Danish government and given to the Kenyan government as an independence gift.
