Purpose and scope

The European External Action Service represented by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of South Africa (the Seller) is selling its former residence and is launching a call for Offers to Purchase from qualified individuals or entities interested in buying this very well located property of 4009 m² of land with an existing house at 249 Aquila street, Waterkloof Ridge, Pretoria, South Africa.

The property

The property is situated at a prime location at Waterkloof Ridge and consists of 4009 m² of land and a house of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 garages, a cellar, an entrance hall, a guest cloakroom, a kitchen & side kitchen plus laundry room, a large living room and family/TV room with wooden floors, a pantry, scullery, a storeroom, study, an undercover braai area, several terraces, two full metal gates, borehole, a large pool, guard house and domestic quarters.
