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.

Security at Boardwalk Manor

Soul soothing, a treasure trove of breath-taking beauty, grounds, a sanctuary for the senses, are kept in tip top shape, silver sunlight dancing playfully off tamed waters, cobbled roads speak of class hitherto unknown, perhaps hidden amongst the lush growth of greenery that envelops this angelic haven…and I think that’s enough for now, I seem to have exhausted my vocabulary of adjectives.

Not surprising – I am attempting to describe the indescribable. Boardwalk Manor is said indescribable (I know, it’s not a noun, sue me). And yes, I know I’m paid to make places sound good, but this is one of those times where I opened the webpage from whence my information doth flow, and actually marvelled at the layout of the estate. You really wouldn’t know that you were living in our country’s capital city, what with the gentle vegetation and eastwardly situation hiding the noises of the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Red brick walkways run parallel with perfectly manicured lawns, upon which lay private tennis courts, swimming pools and club houses to be used by residents at their pleasure and disposal.

I must say, however, that the juxtaposition of palm trees and evergreens within the enclosure does confuse one as to where you really are – a quiet eastern European meadow perhaps - and if that is the case, we could stipulate Silver Lakes Golf Estate to be a possible destination! Until you notice golden sunlight filtering through the large leaves of the palms, and the tropical beaches of Central America spring to mind – fiesta anyone? This wouldn’t stand out of place, given the superb (and somewhat enormous) swimming facility, its crystal clear waters waiting to be broken on a hot summers day by screaming gaggle of children, calls of “Marco” (and yes, “Polo”) echoing down to the exquisitely maintained braai areas. 

I procrastinate, however, from the real reason I write. Yes, palm trees and tennis courts are all fine and well, but one of the most fundamental reasons that we as creatures of conscious move into security estates is, wouldn’t you believe it – security. We all need that feeling of calm and comfort within our homes, and it is derived from a level of safety and security unparalleled before making real the ideal of enclosed living. We as a people and a society have always craved the sense of security that allows us to move throughout our daily lives, unburdened by the worries and anxieties that ensnare our terrors and threaten to turn them into reality.

I propose an experiment. Imagine for a moment, if you would, not being worried about anything. Anything at all. No anxiety about whether your loved ones are safe, no stress about where they are or who they’re with, or that they’re not directly within your line of sight. You have no fears regarding the fact that your worldly possessions lay unguarded, placed in a cache of doors and windows. And finally you – yourself, a person of great power, yet not so powerful that you may not be overpowered. Yet you possess no concern about your well-being, day or night. That feeling? It exists, and it simply lays in wait to be claimed. 

Boardwalk Manor is a luxury residential complex that sees all aforementioned traits to fruition. The value in which the enclosure holds one’s peace of mind is found in their state-of-the-art security, said array consisting of the very latest in crime fighting technology and techniques (hence “state-of-the-art”). Electrical fencing finds magnificent views upon the high walls that surround the estate. All points of entry and exit are extensively guarded, as professionally trained security personal stand ever vigilant, unwavering in their duty to protect, their keen eyesight backed up as CCTV cameras cover every conceivable angle. 

Perhaps one of my favourite aspects of the approach to security, however, is the way in which the estate sees residents empowered through the request that they too, assist with matters of security. The relationship between security personnel and those who call the state home is incredible, and only serves to further strengthen the feeling of immunity against all things ill. Residents are encouraged to report suspicious behaviour or possible breaks in uniformity of the imposed security measures, making it near impossible that those who would enter with untoward intentions would go unnoticed, or even have the opportunity to enter in the first place. And this relationship is certainly extended through a community of enclosed neighbourhoods, the woman from Olympus Residential Estate on alert when visiting her friends within Boardwalk, and the man from Boardwalk keeping an eye out for trouble while enjoying a round at the close at hand, Woodhill Golf Course.

And it certainly is not as though the surrounding area is itself unsafe – Pretoria east is an area known for its aspect of safety, the attention to detail both in outside of the many enclosures in the area a top priority. The overlap in attention to detail regarding safety provides a synergetic affect in dealing with the scourge that is crime.

Boardwalk manor, in no uncertain terms, is perhaps one of the safest havens one could hope to call home. Properties in Boardwalk Manor Estate, in conjunction with having enclosure wide security, have their own, personalised alarm system, all synced with rapid armed response units ready to fight tooth and nail for your protection.

It is then with great conviction in its crime fighting capabilities and the honour in which it does battle that I present: Boardwalk Manor Estate.

You’re welcome.
