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.

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.

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.

Security at Six Fountains

Six fountains – no, one wasn’t enough, for the developers of the stunning estate swore nothing but the finest in modern living for the residents of the enclosure, and good lord did they deliver. Whatever utopian gardens you may picture in descriptions of paradise, I guarantee you they have nothing on this particular stretch of land, such is the magnificence of every property within the Six Fountains Estate. When it comes to the walls that sees the very best in primary protection for is residents, the grass is certainly greener on the other side, except perhaps when it comes to the amenities of Six Fountains, but if you think about it, it’s kind of the same grass.

And speaking of protection…

Surely one of the main goals of any enclosed estate is to provide the kind of security and safety that is becoming all to necessary in today’s urbanised world, as the dangers of the city adapt and evolve in keeping up with the methods that are used in an attempt to eradicate them. Crime has existed within metropolitan areas for generations, and will exist for generations to come - it is an unfortunate truth. However, an area that we as a global society have certainly been making gains in is the ability to pro-actively defend ourselves and our families from said dangers in more and more innovative methods every day.

A little history perhaps – enclosed neighbourhoods are not, as many may believe, an invention of the 21st century. They have, in fact, existed for hundreds of years, and have been in use across the globe. For example, aristocracy in Victorian England used condensed living spaces, walled off from the outside world, as a measure of protection in times of strife. Another instance of gated living is found in Rome, under the reign of Julius Caesar, where roman soldiers would live within gated “barracks” if you will, in an attempt to protect themselves from retribution, courtesy of those that would see them hanged for their actions under the state.

The idea in place for decades, Six Fountains has simply extended (quite marvellously in fact) on the concept of safety through an exclusive and protected community. The basic ideas are still the same, the first and foremost being that of safety in numbers – this is seen in the awe-inspiring array of houses within the enclosure, far apart from each other to guarantee privacy, yet close enough to inspire that sense of community that criminals so despise, such is its deterrent value against the forces of evil. The physical attributes, in terms of protection, manifest themselves in ways similar to that of the ancient world’s take on enclosed living, yet with vastly superior technology aiding in protecting those that it serves.

Whether you see yourself as a Queen, soldier, or perhaps just a family looking to make it in life with the comfort of relative safety is entirely up to you. The choice however, regardless of the societal position you hold – aristocracy, commoner, royalty – is quite obvious. Properties For Sale in Six Fountains have definitely upheld the traditions of safekeeping for years, and will continue to do so for years to come

From first glance, the enclosure itself is already impressive. Kilometres of solid concrete-and-brick wall surround the estate – and they really could’ve stopped there, for there certainly isn’t any way that those with ill intentions would ever manage to scale it unnoticed. But since this is Six Fountains we’re talking about, your safety does not have a limit on how many protections need be in place to ensure its wellbeing.  Atop the gargantuan wall sits rows and rows of high-voltage electrified fencing positively sizzling with electricity – should anyone but brush up against it, creating that bridge to the ground through which said electricity may flow – well, let’s just say that it’ll be the furthest thing from enjoyable. 

Now, should anyone actually manage to circumvent the perimeter wall (possibly through waving a wand, because honestly, magic is the only way you’d do it – but for arguments sake let’s say that Voldemort wants your flat-screen), the motion sensors that dot the ground are definitely not soon to be fooled, as any motion that is seen to be out of bounds, great or small, is picked up and transmitted to the guard duty, their reaction time a force to be reckoned with, their speed certainly a factor born of the sporting greatness found at the schools around Six Fountains.

And as if this wasn’t enough, said guard duty patrols the enclosure with the keen vision that can only be the result of years of on the job training, ready to take action at a moment’s notice.

In looking to a comparison between those enclosures of old, and the one that stands before us today – that of Six Fountains – it becomes clear that greatness does certainly breed greatness, for from humble beginnings did the dream of a security neighbourhood to rival all others form, and was realise in the construction of Six Fountains. And in in continuing the ongoing traditions of security, this exquisite estate will only continue to grow in affluence, prestige and, most of all:

Safety.
