Speaking to YouTuber Edna, Patrick said the land the contemporary two-storey mansion sits on cost at least KSh4 million.
"Land here is between KSh3 million and KSh4 million depending on how you negotiate. Construction is a bit relative because you will have some variations apart from the original cost. So, it was to the tune of between Sh8.5 million to 9 million," said Patrick.
The software engineer said they decided to build the 4-bedroom home to fit their young and growing family, as well as their expanding needs.
"I wanted to grow up with my family. I wanted them to experience being in a home. I was brought up in ushago - my dad is here - but times have changed. We barely go to shags. I wanted them to experience that shags life here," said Patrick.
The contemporary home boasts a perimeter wall, a secured gated entrance and a cabro-styled landscape.
