Western Cape

Situated in the south western corner of South Africa, the Western Cape is one of the country’s most popular locations and destinations. Boasting the exquisite allure of the Winelands, the Karoo and the splendour of the Garden Route, the province also houses Cape Town – the Mother City – a haven for its culturally practised and tasteful residents.

KwaZulu-Natal

Also known as the Garden province as a result of its coastal sub-tropical climate, KwaZulu-Natal has always been one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations. While the coastline is dotted with picturesque small towns, the province’s interior consists mainly of inspiring and spectacular rolling hills.

Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape includes such diverse landscapes – from the arid Karoo to the wet and windy Grahamstown – that any person can find their nirvana here. This province also boasts South Africa’s only snow skiing resort, which is situated in the Southern Drakensberg.

Free State

With Bloemfontein as its capital city, the Free State is found in the very heart of South Africa. The lovely climate and fertile land have made the province a thriving agricultural community. The Free State’s chief tourist attraction is the Golden Gate Highlands National Park nestled in the foothills of the breathtaking Maluti Mountains.

Mpumalanga

Meaning literally “the place where the sun rises”, Mpumalanga is divided into scenic highveld and savannah lowveld. Main attractions in the province include the Kruger National Park, the Sudwala Caves and the Blyde River Canyon.

Limpopo

As the northernmost province in South Africa, Limpopo shares its borders with Botswana on the west, Mozambique on the east and Zimbabwe in the north. Limpopo’s proximity to these African countries has gifted it with the beauty and contrasting landscapes that has made it a favourite among travellers and adventure seekers.

North West

The North West province is a picture of authentic African bushveldt beauty that encourages adventure. From the quiet beauty of the Pilansberg Nature Reserve to the bold decadence of Sun City, the North West offers both culture and comfort.

Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is the biggest and most sparsely populated province in South Africa, dominated by the Karoo Basin. This natural gem includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, the Augrabies Falls as well as the famous Namaqualand region.

0% Commission *

MyRoof does not charge any commission to sell your property online. What we mean with no commission is exactly that – no fees are ever payable to us at any stage for the FREE listing option. As we do not charge commission, you can accept a lower offer but still get the same amount of money in your pocket. This will result in more interested buyers in your property.

Unlimited Photos *

You may upload as many photos as you wish onto our website. This will help you in selling your property faster. The more photos, the better idea a buyer gets of your property. Remember that photos can give the buyer a desire to own your property! You can also add the best things your property has to offer on the extra notes section. Buyers enjoy looking at the additional notes to make a decision on whether to view the property or not

Floor plans

All privately owned properties on our website have floor plans in the main centers. Just imagine if you were a buyer and could get an idea of the layout of a property even before visiting the home! Not only will the buyer get an idea of how big the property is, but he or she will also get the chance to view the sizes of the individual rooms and see where they might want to add or remove a wall. The buyer will also have the opportunity to compare the sizes and asking prices of different properties per square meter. Lastly, the floor plan gives the prospective buyer a clear understanding of how the property looks as the arrows on the floor plan show from which angle each photo was taken. The buyer now gets a real feel for the property and can immediately see if this is what they were looking for. This means that only serious buyers will make offers on your property.

Alerts *

On top of the unlimited photos and the added floor plan, we also offer you a large client base where alerts are sent out to buyers who are looking for a property like yours. Alerts are sent to prospective buyers who have indicated that they are interested in property in a specific area at a specific price range. Alerts will also be sent out should you lower your asking price or arrange a show day with us. This has been found to work well to communicate with many potential buyers at once. And it also keeps buyers interested in your property!

Until sold

We will keep your property on our website until the day it is sold – whether this will take a day or a year. MyRoof has hundreds of thousands of property buyers and send out tens of thousands of alerts daily to keep these buyers updated on new properties they might be interested in buying. Don’t worry if you’ve heard that selling your property is difficult because you are in our capable hands – this is what we do, all day, every day. Our system has been proven to work by many satisfied sellers like you – all of this at no cost to you!

Marketing *

Amenities at Olympus

A city worthy of the gods - perhaps this is why owners of the stunning estate have so aptly named it Olympus. The level of sculpted perfection in every aspect of the breath-taking campus is beyond belief – god-like, if you will. There simply isn’t a corner stone out of place. Based loosely on the urban structure of many a quaint American-style country town, wide roads contribute the welcoming feeling that the neighbourhood exudes, lush vegetation abounds the streets, and elevations of granite boulders scatter the area, as though carefully placed, stacked, by a hand from the heavens, so as to contribute to the visual pleasures of the area. Pre-conceived street layouts come to life in spectacular fashion, and run parallel with cobbled walkways. This last attribute, strangely enough is, to me, the estates foremost characteristic - I challenge you to walk through any neighbourhood in the Pretoria east region and find a mind-set of urban design that values pedestrians as much as Olympus Country Estate. And this value extends to ease of access as well as viewed appeasement – celestial Olympus certainly knows how to entertain, the properties within Olympus all adding to the vigour that the estate exudes

However, an estate is not made solely by its architectural genius, nor wide streets, nor the trees that line them, their cover reminiscent of the sheltering arms of a higher power. An estate is made by the relationship between its residents, their homes within, and the surrounding conveniences that add to the quality of their lives. For how happy would one be if one of necessity drove hours merely to conduct one’s business? How safe would one feel if, after an accident, it required a lengthy trip to reach adequate medical care? Would you prefer that schools be a five, or fifty minute drive away? With Zeus-like vigour, Olympus Country Estate rose to obliterate these challenges through excellent proximity to a multiplicity of top quality shopping centres, schools, private hospitals and more. It is doubtful that you will ever need to travel more than 15 minutes from the entrance gate to achieve what is desired (okay fine, lets factor in traffic and say 16 minutes).

Our journey to the lands that surround the pantheon starts at Woodlands Boulevard shopping centre (I would love it to start at the Woodhill Golf Course and Country club, but I feel that a round of 18 and a scotch would probably be more appreciated near the end of said journey. Also, I'm the designated driver). And to give you an idea of just how “around the corner it is”, directions from Olympus Country Estate to said shopping centre would be: Right onto Atterbury, left onto Mareuil…yes, that’s it. As for said shopping centre itself? Good gods above, it’s as though Persephone ascended from the underworld and blessed the land with a touch reminiscent of her mother (her mother, just by the way - Demeter, goddess of fertility and the harvest. Sorry, I studied ancient cultures in college for a year, possibly less because of the culture and more because of the pretty brunette who sat in the front row). Choice is in abundance, with every conceivable need met to the highest level. Fine dining for first dates (where I eventually ended up taking said front row pretty brunette), entertainment galore (thank gods, because I was really starting to run out of things to say to her) in the form of glorious cinematic experiences and music stores with catalogues to astound the senses, many a diamond store, their entrances announcing names such as American Swiss, Brown and Pandora (you can be sure we went in there when her birthday came around. My wallet still hasn’t quite recovered), pet stores (we decided to go in there too. Although the word “decided” implies that I had a choice in the matter), a variety of clothing stores (apparently she wanted to date a “man”, not a boy. Arguments for the continued use of my Star Wars pants fell upon deaf ears) – this list goes on (strangely enough, this list is directly proportionate to the money I now owe the bank).

This is but one of the many, many (seriously, many) lifestyle centres that abound the Pretoria East region. Perhaps you’re more of a realist? Less Demeter and more Hephaestus? Now there’s a god who’d need a lot of medical attention. Working the forges all day, flames billowing, molten metal flowing – at some point you’re going to need a Band-Aid. But, like Ares to the men of war, we’ve got your back. The prestigious Pretoria East Hospital awaits to soothe what ails you, and you can bet your new house in Olympus that they have a lot more that a Band-Aid. Attracting the best in the country (and indeed, the best outside of it), the utmost is done to ensure that you leave looking and feeling healthier than when you walked in (yes, really). With rapid response units, manned with the highly trained paramedics, standing at the ready, you will never need to fear for your safety or well-being again.

Got a bit of golf in you? ‘Course you do! Who wouldn’t, what with watching Happy Gilmore, The Greatest Game Ever Played and the Legend of Bagger Vance (if you haven’t seen at least two of those three titles: Stop reading. Watch them now.

Great, now that you’ve seen them and your life has been forever changed, you’ll appreciate the incredibly low travel time that residents living within Olympus Country Estate are afforded with when travelling to one of the two professional level 18-hole golf courses at either Woodhill or Silver Lakes Golf Estate (see, I told you it would work better at the end).  A bit off your game? Dedicated personal golf trainers will put your right back on it, from your arc to your swing to the way you hold the bat, as though a bird in the hand (yes, that was a movie line). 

I guess what I we at MyRoof have been trying to convey throughout the course of this article - excuse me, throughout our travels of the surrounding lands, is that it is very easy to buy a house. It is something special to find a life, where the house becomes a home, the seat of power, the palace to your thrown on – or in this case, in – Olympus.
