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!

Amenities at Woodhill

It’s an unseasonably cold November Wednesday. You roll out of bed at 7am – a little later than you would normally wake up, but given the excellent proximity to everything you need to go about your day, you’re not too worried about it.

Your kids are already downstairs having breakfast, you’re better half has packed their lunch and made sure that they’ve double checked their bags - they have everything they need for their choices in the extensive extra-mural program they’ve begun within the schools around Woodhill Estate. There’s no sense of urgency, no rushing to the car, shouting for everyone to hurry up so you can beat the endless line of unmoving cars. You know that ever since you moved here, your children cycle to school in complete safety. You have no qualms in allowing them to leave unsupervised, save for the fact they’re just growing up so fast. Oh and also it’s raining, you need to make sure they have their coats.

An hour later, raindrops continues to pelt the windows, the noise blending seamlessly with the whir of the espresso maker. Your to-do list sits atop the counter. It’s long, but manageable. It wasn’t always like this though, as you reflect back to times when merely doing the groceries set your teeth on edge. The traffic, god the traffic. Bumper to bumper, as everyone tries and fails to make the 40 minute drive in a 30 minute window, tensions running high, as the scorching heat of summer, and the bitter, unrelenting cold of winter do unspeakable things to your leather car seats – the two seem to be in agreement about your discomfort. And let’s face it, traffic aside, the mall you used to go to wasn’t so much a mall as a badly lit building with “stuff” inside – and regardless of how much stuff there was, you could never seem to find the stuff you were looking for.

Fortunately that’s not an issue anymore, you think to yourself as you sip your coffee its aroma freeing you from the grasp of slumber. Woodlands Boulevard, its stimulating grounds attainable within minutes, has everything you need and then some. In fact it has actually become a pleasure to frequent the lifestyle centres that abound the area, smiling at the thought that something so mundane as “shopping” could’ve been made so enjoyable by the architects and engineers that saw the construction of modern market places with such attention to detail.

The grounds go quiet, and ray of silver sunlight pierces through the greying skies for a moment, illuminating a patch of water on the lake, its exterior dancing under the light wind that has begun to blow and the ripples of raindrops that bounce off its surface before settling beneath it, the reflection moving about the walls of the properties of Woodhill. You marvel at the fact that a piece of rugged, unforgiving terrain to could be so marvellously sculpted into modern society’s vision of paradise…The light disappears, swallowed by the gathering darkness, the prospect of a storm, thunder rumbling in the distance, as though anticipating the festival of noise and light in the sky that is soon to be.

You dress and head down to the driveway, the idea of blankets in front of fires pushed to the back of your mind for now. As you step outside, you shiver slightly and pull your cardigan around your shoulders. After waiting for weeks for the rains, the weather seems to have obliged with a vengeance, its sense of humour apparent with the lack of warmth that usually accompanies the summer showers this late in the year. No matter, you smile to yourself, the car has central heating.

You wind your way down the curving road that leads from your home to the exit of the estate, the greens, reds and purples of summer blossom on the branches of the magnificent trees that line the streets. The drive to Woodlands Boulevard seems to take no time at all, and shopping is a blur as you are caught up in lights colours that speak of Christmas in every shop window. Your list completed within a matter of hours, you stand at the pay-point, for a moment at a loss for what to do with yourself for the rest of the today. Based on past experiences, you certainly hadn’t budgeted on having completed what would normally have taken an entire day within one morning…

An idea sparks in your mind, somewhere around the same place that thoughts of blankets and fires are stored. You pay for your parking ticket (well, you “pay” for your ticket. The adventure through the mall didn’t take long enough to register a parking cost). Back through the gates as you key yourself in within your unique entrance tag, along the road that stretches to your front door, colours of the world outside your window melting together as you race upwards, eager to get home. But once you’re there, you do not stop. You take the steps two at a time, bursting through the bedroom door and run to the cupboard at the far end of the room, directly adjacent to the ensuite bathroom. Standing propped up against the back wall, you find a familiar shape staring back you.

You gently pick up the golf clubs in anticipation of the course that is Woodhill Country Club, carry them down the stairs, and exit your front door, glorious sunlight peeking through grey skies in tales of fairer weather to come.
