In January last year, reports emerged that billionaire business mogul cum philanthropist Manu Chandaria who was robbed yesterday night was on the brink of being auctioned over a Ksh 6 Billion consolidated debt that his Kaluworks Ltd company owed to several banks.
To prove that things were serious, the lenders went ahead to appoint a valuer for Chandaria's property in preparation for him to be auctioned.
Among the properties that were on the list of being auctioned was his Muthaiga located mansion which he's called home for as long as he can remember.

As mentioned earlier, the home is located in the leafy Muthaiga Estate in a neighborhood that's home to several ambassadors and even former President Mwai Kibaki.
In the 2019 valuation, it was established that the house was on a 5.1 acre piece of land which together made it worth Ksh 1.2 billion.
It's surrounded by trees among them being a bamboo species as well as a beautiful garden in the compound.
The house which was presumably built using stones is painted white on the outside and has a grey roof made of tiles.
It's pavements are made of concrete and stones and not ceramic tiles like the case for many modern homes.
For extra security reasons, the house has grills installed on all windows and doors as seen in the photo below;
Inside the house, there's a vacuum lift that Chandaria who is an engineer by profession installed to help him safely move up and down between floors after falling down the stairs once.
