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.


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.


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.


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.

Schools Near Woodlands

Woodlands Lifestyle Estate – certainly not the first time I write of the green paradise we all know so well, but assuredly the first time I look specifically and critically at the educational institutes of the surrounding Pretoria east region, also within fantastic distance of properties in Silver Lakes. With education being the most valuable acquisition of anyone  at any time (a personal philosophy that I intend to ensconce within as many as possible, simply because it could not be truer), it stands to reason that it is our responsibility as adults to enhance future generations educational experiences to such a point that they are not only able to reach our current standards of living, but surpass them in every way, and uplift those around them to a point where civilization is forever changed for the better. It is therefore of the utmost importance that our children are sculpted mentally, physically, emotionally and psychologically in ways and means that continue to benefit our local and global societies on every level.

I myself am not a parent, but I certainly understand the difficulty behind choosing an academic setting into which to place a growing mind – one that certainly would have one of the most influential and profound impacts on said minds beliefs, mantras, philosophies and actions. In an attempt to assist with the process of selection, I've done a little research (slightly untrue, I did a lot of research). Found below are some of those schools within close proximity to properties in Woodlands Estate, I feel would give any child a springboard start, head and shoulders above the rest, in creating a life worth living.

One may choose a school for many an interchangeable reason – academic performance and quality, safety and security, value for money, extra-curricular activities, to name but a few. But history is permanent, and is written through our actions of the past. There are fewer reliable sources when attempting to determine the character of an educational establishment. And when it comes to history, perhaps no one has a richer nor more profound story to tell than The Glen High School.

Founded in 1976, the Glen has endured near four decades, and has only gone from strength to strength.  With great pride in its Scottish Heritage, The Glen strives to make known its roots through aspects such as the school coat-of-arms, the use of “clans” instead of houses, and the attire of its students, which includes kilts and tartan ties. An atmosphere of competition is highly encouraged as a medium of personal and social growth, and inter-clan competitions are seen in both sporting activities as well as academic performance, the former claiming responsibility for various alumni positions as part of various national sports teams as well as Olympic athlete status.

The Glen boasts ownership over a private swimming pool and, perhaps even more impressive, an indoor sports facility, in which many a sporting affair is held. In keeping with technological advancements yet maintaining its classy touch, the most recent additions to the school include scores of the latest desktop computers and a rec room and foyer centre, available to students, staff and visitors alike.

The Glen however, though great, does not stand unrivaled.

A prestigious academy for ladies, Lerato Convent School is surely a true academic treasure of its time. With its ideological conception in the year 1585, the dream of an academy of excellence through which young women of society may nurture their God-given talents was realized in 1878. Since then it has grown to accommodate the most refined young adults, preparing them for post-graduation success.

Personally, the most inviting factor seems to be the array of interesting guests to the premises. Said guests are invited to educate through the use of everything from  medical kits to fire trucks to snakes (I didn't say snakes…) Pupils are taught everything from basic first aid skills, to the handling of powerful firehouses, and even the correct way to hold a pythons (who said anything about pythons…). You’d certainly be hard-pushed to find a more comprehensive approach to education.

With religious facilities on site, it is well known that Lerato Convent places strong emphasis on spiritual as well as social growth, meaning that staff and students alike constantly strive to encourage a feeling of belonging and well-being.

Got a son? We've got you covered. Waterkloof House Preparatory School was founded in 1923 (yes your maths was correct, WHPS is quickly approaching their centenary celebration!). This testament to education instills in its youth a sense of belonging to a wider community, yet still encourages independent thinking, self-discipline, all the while feeding a hunger to realize great potential found within all of its students. The schools motto is, very simply, “Work Hard, Play Straight” and should give you a relatively good idea of the value that honor and honesty holds. With a strong Christian element at work, young men are taught the importance of spiritual growth and understanding, and this ethos spills over into the everyday of lives of its disciples, seen through the complete and utter gentlemen-like attitude of scholars. Learning experiences at WHPS, by nature and definition, transcend classrooms and lecture halls, and are found and felt as future graduates frequent sport fields and stunning recreational areas.

The qualities infused in WHiPSians (that’s correct, they are their own species) are synonymous with those that see future success and societal growth. Perhaps one of the many, many reasons that high schools far and near, fight tooth and nail to have WHPS students enrolled within their academies.

You see, you need to keep in mind that when you buy a house, you are also buying a life – you re investing in the future of yourself and all those you influence. The community your child grows up in is completely and utterly influenced by the location of your dwelling place, and that extends to their education. So before you view a property, call a bank, sign a lease, ask yourself this – Whether you seek properties in The Wilds, Silver Lakes, Woodlands or beyond, are you buying the house because of the house? Or are you buying the house because of the life it has to offer?

I believe Woodlands is able to answer that question......
