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.

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.

Natural Wonders at Heron Hill

For a while now, I’ve been writing about amenities with regards to what has been built around the enclosed neighbourhoods of the Pretoria east region, predominantly in terms of shopping malls and lifestyle centres of the highest calibre – Which is all fine and well, for who wouldn’t enjoy the marvels and splendours of the built environment when they cater to your every need in the seeing the very best in shopping amongst international and local brands alike. However I have neglected the more subtle tastes of South Africa’s capital, the hidden gems unspoken of in the tabloids and news bulletins. For example, I’m pretty sure most of us have heard of the large-scale expansion that Menlyn Mall is currently undergoing – scores of new stores that are set to cement the shopping centre’s place on the map of as one of the largest upon the African continent, huge amounts of publicity and funding complimenting the massive upgrade in greatness and glory. Personally, I cannot wait – the array of choice that is already available within the walls of Menlyn in astounding, the addition of more just plain mind-numbing.

In getting to my point – Yes, malls and clubs and pubs and bars are all fine and well and a lot of fun (a lot of fun – the times to be experienced when frequenting, for example, the nightlife Heron Hill stand to astound and amaze). Yet there are always those moments of pure magic that appear unexpectedly to remind us why life in the eastern suburbs is all that it is described to be. And I had one of those moments yesterday.

We were extremely lost. Having been invited to a party at a friend’s house, our GPS, as GPS’’s do, decided to have a bit of fun with us in leading us in squares (literally, squares, the thing told me to “turn right” four times in a row). This was a ways down Lynwood road, in passing exit signs for Silver Lakes Golf Estate and Silver Stream Estate in our attempt to reach our final destination. Eventually it got to a point where my co-pilot and I decided to ditch the party and drive until we found something that made up for the stress that had been visited upon us by the little black box suckered to the inside of the windscreen (Garmin really needs to sort their stuff out). And drive we did – the plots became bigger and further apart, the cars we passed more and more infrequent as the sun moved from its gentle mid-morning rays to a scalding heat, beating down relentlessly upon the hot tarmac. We had almost decided to call it a day when we came upon a sign that simply read:

Nkwe, turn right

Our curiosity piqued, we obliged turning off the main road onto a mercifully shaded path that seemed to lead into the heart of the hills ahead of us. In following the roads signs dotted along our newly plotted course, we arrived at…well, I’m not really sure how to describe it. It was a lake, certainly, of average size, relatively deep. But it was also so much more.

I swear if I ever bought into Homes in Heron Hill, it would be so that I could live closer to this new-found treasure that we had stumbled upon. It was as though God himself (or herself) had accidently-on-purpose spilled a bucket of magic, and the result was what lay before me. A waterfall, a lake surrounded by cliffs – and as I watched, body after body would fling themselves off the edge of said cliffs into the abyss, a look of sheer ecstasy coming across their faces as they lay suspended in nothingness, before breaking the water with a deafening crash, returning to the surface, the aforementioned look of ecstasy now replaced with a sheer disbelief in what had just happened. 

Needless to say I jumped out the car and made my way to the top of those cliffs as quickly as I could, clothes and all, to take part in what has no doubt been one the highlights of my year. Time and again I threw myself into the water, absolutely thrilled that my prayers had been answered in finding refuge from the stressors of life is such spectacular fashion. I think I may have jumped off those rocks a good twenty or thirty times, varying between dives, flips and the good old pin-wheel of death – losing control of oneself mid-air and flailing ones arms in order to regain one’s balance, much to the entertainment of all those watching.

In reaching the crux of my story, and hopefully my point – there is so much that lays undiscovered to those of us who do not yet fully know the lands of the east. So much to be appreciated and enjoyed. And it is something that I one day hope to be able to do as a result of the excellent proximity provided by the estate that is Heron Hill.
