Lavington is a green haven lying halfway between the busier areas of Hurlingham and Westlands.
Here the few modern apartment blocks are unobtrusive and the lanes linking busier roads are lined with large houses and bungalows set in an acre or more of well-tended garden. Many have swimming pools. Some roads are gated with security staff screening all visitors. Lavington is popular with expatriate families perhaps with older children who need the space offered by a large house with a garden.
There are no supermarkets within the suburb, although there is a small arcade of shops including a patisserie, a butcher, convenience store and bank (with ATM) at Lavington Green. The area is also home to the Braeburn and Braeside schools. At least four bus or matatu services loop through Lavington, linking it with Hurlingham and the city centre to the south (7 km), and again to the city centre via Westlands to the north (6 km). A taxi to Westlands will cost KSh500, or to town KSh700.
