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!

Schools at the Meadows

“The Battle of Waterloo was won upon the playing fields of Eton”

I read that some where once, a long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away…no I’m kidding, we’re not going to do that right now). I was very young, so I didn’t understand it immediately, but later in life I would realise the full value of what it meant – It meant, and still means, that education, in any form, whether it be with regards to intellect, ethics, morality, or even, as in this case, warfare, begins in the early stages of ones growth, as a person and as part of a society – that the lessons that we learn today, will serve us in good stead tomorrow, help us overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, conquer our fears and emerge victorious, and this is certainly something that residents who call the properties in The Meadows home, know well.

I’m not saying send your child to battle – Not entirely sure how good that would look on your “Parent CV”. Or on judgment day when you argue you case to St. Peter, the Pearly  Gates glistening in the distance – somehow I don’t know if the “greater good” argument would work in this context. And I fully understand the difficulty of sending your child to Eton – besides being on the other side of the world, I hear the food is absolutely horrific. But perhaps the main question you should be asking yourself, is why on earth you would want to ship off your loved ones when world class educational institutions (with great, home grown South African food) exists in your back yard? Schools with a ferocity, a hunger to dominate the African, and indeed the global landscape of education, and not just in a “book-smart” sort of way; No, these are schools of the mind, body and spirit, where personal growth is held in great value, and the students that reside within their classrooms achieve something that very few of us glimpse within our educational upbringing – said personal growth being met through a liberally minded directive that promotes the wellbeing of all religions, a teaching staff of the highest of standards, and a sporting and extramural initiative that would make Waterloo look like a Nerf war (yeah I didn’t know what “Nerf” meant either until I saw those adds with kids shooting sponge darts at each other – as a fully matured adult, I have no shame in saying that I await pay-day so I can get a Nerf gun).

I believe I’ve highlighted the importance of the extra-curricular, sporting kinda side of things, in conjunction with a healthy mind – for the two no doubt complement each other in the most beautiful way. I believe the present problem that now faces us with teeth bared and claws unsheathed, is that of where to find such an academy – one that ensconces the principles of sporting victory and fair play. Hardly a problem - the beast’s teeth are made of rubber and his claws short and brittle – for The Glen stands out amongst the amenities near The Meadows Estate as a place of fierce competition, never content to rest upon their laurels.

Now, admittedly it is difficult for me to write about this particular institute – not because of grudges of old…okay fine, yes I hold a grudge against them, my team and I recently lost a football match to the men in green. However it must be said that the composure and quality in which the game was played was quite inspiring. The side-lines were abreast in supportive family and fans, and the intensity that was clear within every lime-shirted player was quite intimidating. This is, no doubt, a characteristic instilled and nurtured within every Glenwegian (that’s right, they have their own name, a new powerful race of sentient beings) through their comprehensive sporting and after-school program, brought to life upon top class facilities (the game we played was a Glenwegian home-ground affair, and good lord that pitch was exquisite, the floodlights dripping silver onto perfectly manicured green grass). With a strong emphasis on keeping alive its Scottish traditions, The Glen carries a thirst for victory in every aspect – I await our return game with baited breath.

But enough of my troubles and woe against superior foe. For it should be understood that the Glen, no doubt at the top of its game, does not stand unrivalled on the list that names the top schools of Pretoria east, for no democracy should ever be unchallenged. And who a more worthy than Hatfield Christian School. Such is the nature of their sporting facilities that I feel compelled to resort to popular modern slang and say “omg” (don’t worry I won’t). The effort that this high school as put into the training grounds upon which they breed the greats of tomorrow is incredible, reminiscent of the professional golf course of Silver Lakes. Visible from afar, one needs only to look into the well-guarded grounds, football fields, cricket nets, swimming pools and all, to understand why they sit as one of the top academies as developers of Olympic class athletes.

Yes, I’m a sports enthusiast, and it goes unsaid that I will always show bias in favour of those places that breed the kind of talent that puts our country on the map in global sports. However the aspect to appreciate the most in schools that value sports as high priority within their curriculums, is its contribution to academic greatness, for sports is more than just a collective word for “the games we play”. It is a lifestyle that teaches us far more than could ever be gained through the theory of a classroom. It brings out the very best in us. It challenges us to push ourselves harder, faster, further. And without challenge, there can be no change.
