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.

Natural Wonder at The Ridge Estate

It is important to be as honest and open as possible. Sure it is important to be so with people in general, but it is more important to be honest and open with oneself. If I might be frank with you (and myself) the environment is not something I spend enormous amounts of time pondering. I rarely take a step back and think to myself, “what will become of our ozone layer because of all the carbon emissions from our cars and companies,” or “pharmaceutical companies continue to destroy our drinking water with chemical contaminants, and if they do not heed environmentally friendly testing and development practices, what will we drink?” I wouldn’t expect this concern to be a prevalent one among the residence of a gorgeous homes for sale in The Ridge Estate either.

Please understand that I am by no stretch of the imagination demeaning the consequence of such concerns, nor am I dismissing the apparent environmental problems that have been propagated through man’s selfish manipulation of the planet to his singular benefit. I am simply affirming that in the grand scheme of my most pressing day to day, moral, ethical, spiritual and personal concerns, this on does not rank particularly high; which is undoubtedly unfortunate (that is what many of my hippie friends would claim anyway).

Might I at least get some credit for knowing what kind of environmental hazards and problems we are encroaching on as a society as global constituents to symbiotic survival? What I mean is, I at least know what problems we are facing, isn’t that better that the person that has no idea at all? For example I am acutely aware of the carbon emissions that are supposedly eating away at our already depleted ozone layer. Similarly, I have paid attention to the growing number of reports of the impacts of deforestation and habitat destruction that is plaguing both developed and developing countries, displacing vast numbers and categories of wild species. Just to show off the extent of my insight, there is a corollary conundrum in terms of deforestation with the loss of valuable oxygenation, life sustaining trees – particularly in jungles, which although covering only seven percent of the face of the earth, they in fact produce thirty percent of the worlds oxygen!

Man continues to chug along, doing what they believe to be necessary for accumulation of wealth or success, the cultivation of comfort and convenience, and it appears only a fraction of people recognize that nature is being compromised in the process. Remember when I told you that I couldn’t imagine this being a major concern for residence of The Ridge? Id like to tell you something amazing about the Ridge Estate that makes it a special estate to reside within in these environmentally troubled times.

The estate is not unlike the countless demonstrations of mans growth in technology, dominance over land and continued pursuit of utopia within the ills of our world. Consequently, one can observe sophisticated architecture as well as delightfully convenient, stat-of-the-art amenities among a few other illustrations of ‘progress’. None of that is what makes this place special.

What makes The Ridge special is that there is a standing order from the developers to maintain the picturesque natural landscape and to avoid the unnecessary alterations to the environment for arbitrary aesthetic purposes. While architectural and technological advancement is not ignored, the plant and animal life that exists here on the Rocky Highveld Grassland, co-exists with its human co-habitants largely untroubled and hardly displaced as a result of the development. This is to say that both as a measure of natural splendor designed for the enjoyment of the resident, and a profound consciousness for the conservation of the environment and nature as a whole, The Ridge is akin to the best of worlds. At any given time, the natural wonder of the Grassland and the Bankenveld are never gravely compromised, to this end man, plant and animal alike can exist in a peace, tranquility and symbiosis rarely achieved anywhere, even by scrutinizing design.

The Ridge is in itself a natural wonder, a marvel of man’s conservatory concern for the world that has graciously housed and provided for us, interwoven with mankind’s very natural and primal instinct to maneuver the world to our benefit.

If you love nature, the environment but also appreciate the architectural and technological accomplishments of mother natures favored sons – humans – then there is no place in the city for you but the properties for sale in The Ridge Estate.
