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.


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.


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.


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!

Amenities at Silver Lakes

The holiday season is fast approaching…its festive mood upon us encroaching…setting all of us in motion - Okay I don’t have any more rhymes in my quiver of whimsy. But nonetheless, it’s heading towards that time of year where we all start to feel a little more generous, a little more caring towards one another…ah who am I kidding, Christmas time is capitalism’s way of sky rocketing our blood pressure to epic proportions. The stress of the shopping alone would be enough to send us into an extended hibernation, perhaps emerging from our chrysalis a week before the new work year started, none the wiser of the ills of gift wrapping and counter check-out lines. You know you're growing up when Christmas no longer signals the end of the back and forth from schools around Silver Lakes, and begins to mean the start of the back and forth from malls in purchasing presents for people you hardly know.

This year, however, does stand to behave a little differently than were our previous encounters with the fat man in a red suit shouting profanities towards women (fun fact, the traditional image of dear St. Nick – the aforementioned overweight male dressed like a discoloured lighthouse beacon – was actually an invention of the Coca Cola franchise – you know, back in the days when cocaine was a staple ingredient in their fizzy mix (what, you thought the name was a coincidence?). Now, it doesn’t always have to be like that – the following few years could be, very possibly, your most enjoyable consumerist holiday to date, and yes, calm down, I’m about to tell you why.

We all like spending money (some of us more than others). It’s kind of like procrastinating (possibly why I’m up at 2 am writing an article that was due four days ago) – in that it isn’t beneficial in the slightest, but lord is it fun. What I do guarantee though, is that none of us, unless you have a very twisted perception of what enjoyment entails, like sitting in the kind of traffic that comes hand-in-hand with the holiday spirit. Let me paint a word picture than I’m sure we are all too familiar with by now – it’s December 24th. The Christmas party you’ve been planning for the past month is less than 24 hours away, and you still haven’t finished preparing. Worse than that, you’re sister-in-law has invited her in-laws to your get together (perhaps it’s time to take the in-law into your own hands) which means you’ve got to increase the amount of food you had originally plan for, and shop for people you don’t know so they don’t go unnoticed by the secret Santa committee. Thursday afternoon traffic means than getting to the centre you need to be at to accomplish the mammoth task beset upon you at the last minute is already a mission in itself. Passing over the fact that the nearest shopping mall is at least a 40 minute drive away, the constant stop-go movement of the line of cars ahead of you and the seemingly shared road rage by all around you is not doing anything to help your ETA, or your frustration levels.

Now, imagine this scenario for a moment: A mall – excuse me, a lifestyle centre that hold within its grasp the answer to the problems presented to you by the in-laws of your in-laws. Now, if you will, imagine not one of these centres, but rather scores of them, scattered throughout the eastern reaches of the capital city, where choice sees many infinites possible, as though one were glimpsing the tenth dimension discussed amongst string theorists (not to get to technical or anything). And in lowering yourself back to the recognisable plane of the 4D world we know so well, these centres all within a moment’s travel from your homestead, said 45 minute drive and hum-drum of traffic a thing of the past.

I begin with a description of the tried and trusted. I speak of course, of Menlyn Shopping Centre – or as we probably all knew it as children, the “Circus Tent” (ah, youth). Perhaps aptly conceived though, for I have nothing but fond memories attached to the place. For starters, it’s so well situated, arterials vehicle route on either side, that it would take an effort to not get there as quickly as possible, this description not yet paying homage to the 4 different entrances that allow for great ease of access to the hundreds of stores that await. Indeed I have many friends within the properties of Silver Lakes Estate that look for any excuse to hang out at the most, in their words, “hip and happening mall” in all of the Pretoria…it’s actually getting  a bit annoying, I should probably cut them loose…you know, after we hang out at Menlyn Retail.

I now move to describe my personal favourite of all the of this fine city’s mall. Is there a second? The motion carries! Besides the only ice rink in the greater metropolitan area, The Grove stands in such wonderful proximity to the properties in the east that it is sure to lighten the work load in terms of getting there. Forget driving, you’ll feel like you Harry Potter’ed your way to the palatial glass doors that beckon to you.  The high ceilings and incorporation of natural light will give the impression that you’re actually shopping in a small forest in the Americas, albeit one with air-conditioning, cinemas, beauty-spas and ice cream parlours.

As for those pesky in-laws that needed to be catered for – oh them? Nah, I finished doing their shopping while I wrote this article. That’s how easy it was. And that’s how easy it can be for you, should your choose Silver Lakes, it’s radius to everything you need so small it’s practically non-existent, as the place to spend your holidays during this, and every other year. Now how about a round of golf at the Silver Lakes Golf Course and Country Club?

Merry Christmas!
