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!

Dining at The Ridge Estate

Dining at The Ridge Estate

I am positive you have heard the phrase, “guilty pleasures”. If you have heard the phrase before then it is unlikely you have not caught on to the nuance of what this age-old concept suggests. If you have not, I shall define it for you in technical and rather drab terms. According to wikipedia:

A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The "guilt" involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one's lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, such as styles of entertainment, fashion, video games, music theatre, television, films, junk food and fetishes can be examples of guilty pleasures. 

Thankfully, all of the above can be enjoyed behind the closed doors of the properties for sale in The Ridge Estate.

Do you know what your guilty pleasures are? You can take a moment to consider it. I know precisely what mine are! Embarrassingly there are quite a few – admission of what they are exactly is likely to be far more embarrassing therefore I will specify only one. I have, and always have had, a markedly intense and radical sweet tooth. I have had such sweet tooth since I was a young whippersnapper. I have enjoyed sugary treats since the time I could consume anything at all – liquid or solid – and have never since looked back or had any intentions of altering my sugary habits.

Several examples of said sweet tooth include incidences where if I made cups of tea or coffee for the family, my mother might have a single teaspoon of sugar, my sister between two and a half or three; I would indulge in five! I had little to no trouble at all climbing counters and cabinets to reach chocolate syrup, jam, sugar and/or honey, all of which I had no difficulty consuming unworldly quantities of with nothing else. I even innovated a specialty constituted by toasted white bread with butter and sugar (I later found out that someone had beaten me to the punch). This is was one of a plethora of inappropriately sweet and unconventional delicacies that could only be conceived by a profound and severely problematic taste for anything resembling or consisting of sweet.

Brace yourselves for the not-so-startling-truth. While, I no longer consume honey and hot chocolate directly from the container, I have no lost my sweet tooth at all. My tastes and sensibilities have matured and refined and now I can afford to indulge in sophisticated confectionaries. I have opened my wallet and my mind toward a nirvana filled with pastries, candy, cakes, shakes, smoothies and practically any other kind of sugary delight you could possibly imagine. Ok, the last line may have been a minor exaggeration. Nevertheless, I am certain you get the gist.

You might similarly suffer this very same affliction of having a sweet tooth. You might also have fond yourself on many an occasion devilishly consuming inordinate amounts of delectables that you happen upon in your life. If that is so, you will be elated to discover that a champion of chocolate-inspired goodies is only minutes travel from Boardwalk Meander. It is called La Coco C. Here you will find a special satisfaction for your sweet tooth, knowing that it is so close to home. La Coco C is a pastry vendor that specializes, as the name suggests, in chocolate based and inspired treats sure to satiate any longing sweet tooth out there.

Thusly, I submit to you that, while I do have a sweet tooth, I should recant and admit that I am not guilty about the pleasure at all; nor should you be, in your beautiful home at the Ridge Estate.
