Full description:

This exquisite property is for sale for the first time in 50 years. Incorporating one of the most iconic 5 star diner's club award-winning restaurants in Pretoria, set on a sub dividable 3,679sqm prime piece of land, it is brimming with legendary heritage and burgeoning opportunities as a home or business.

This is one of the last projects, by famous architect, Karl Jooste, designed in 1965 and completed in 1967. Set in the beautifully picturesque suburb of Waterkloof Ridge, this unique property is second to none. Walking through the house, one is intrigued by arches created from intricate brick work and the aesthetic use of concrete, glass and stone. Jooste worked for Norman Eaton before establishing his own practice and was a friend of French architect Le Corbusier and visited France regularly. The design of the house naturally emulates the work of Le Corbusier set in an African regional context. The use of large overhangs to create deep shadows to temper the African sun; the use (and expression) of local materials and craftsmanship; Le Modular based proportions; and the dominance of the masonry structural grid topped with sinus curved brick vaults create a unique spatial and architectural experience. Off-shutter concrete is combined with brickwork and the use of color, further alluding to a Brazilian influence. Internally, interconnected volumes are flooded with natural light and everything, down to the handrails, is meticulously detailed. The building is perched on a hill and responds to both site and climate with generous overhangs to protect the interior from direct sun and remains a magnificent example of Modernist architecture to this day. The expansive 3,679m˛ stand is sub dividable with the property retaining guest house rights. Existing established business opportunity also for sale.
