The First Family moved out of their home at the beginning of 2015 to allow for major renovation and are excited to move back.

Despite the historical significance of the house, Uhuru later decided to demolish the house he inherited from his father and rebuild it.

A week before Independence on December 12, 1963. Kenya’s Prime Minister Jomo Kenyatta was handed the fully furnished house by Aga Khan.

Uhuru’s new residence is a pale shadow of his former house and worth a whooping Sh700 million at the least.

Boosting of the latest modern facilities the stylish white fortress is located next to State House.

Satellite images around Caledonia Estate show a driveway with a mini roundabout that opens into the entrance of the main building, which has two wings.

The wing on the right has a swimming pool, while the one on the left appears to have an unmarked helipad on the roof of the upper level.

A concrete wall, high-tech electric fence, bulletproof windows and a state-of-the-art alarm system are among the security features.

The ground floor features a living room and dining room, kitchenette and more offices while the upper floor contains three spacious bedrooms and other rooms.

Inside the palatial house is a large lounge big enough to accommodate a lot of guests and delegations that Uhuru is said to have personally requested.

The mansion with an upper level is privately funded but all security features are designed by government experts.
