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. Don’t worry if you’ve heard that selling your property is difficult because you are in our capable hands – this is what we do, all day, every day. Our system has been proven to work by many satisfied sellers like you – all of this at no cost to you!

Marketing *

MyRoof offers the complete online experience for buyers. How do we do it? With our front page displays, many photos of your property, detailed floor plans, MyRoof For Sale board, MyRoof On Show boards and alerts we send out to our large data base. If you combine this with our world-wide marketing resulting in thousands of online offers on a daily basis, you know your property transaction is in good hands.

Security at Willow Acres

Willow Acres…Hundred Acre Wood, Narnia. Sorry I thought we are naming places we’d like to live. I mean, the Hundred Acre Wood, with talking animals and a seemingly endless supply of Honey? And Narnia, also with talking animals (a fact that dawned on me as I wrote it) and awesome battles for the control of a kingdom? Yet it stands as no coincidence that Willow Acres was the first place that came to mind and paper. 

I’ve been sitting at my desk for the past 30 minutes contemplating how to start this particular description. I’ve literally watched the seconds tick by on the clock, staring at a blank screen, willing it to fill itself with words, thus allowing me to vegetate for a while longer (don’t tell my boss). And it’s not that I don’t feel like working (okay who am I kidding, it’s Friday, if I could I’d be at the beach right now), but rather that I don’t think I possess the descriptive capacity to do justice to today’s assignment.

The well of big words isn’t inexhaustible. It’s not long before I’m telling you how the “beauty of Willow Acres, enticing as Helen to Agamemnon, would launch a thousand vessels so as to claim ownership over the face of untouched extravagance”, or some other variation of what I know from watching Troy. The funny thing? It’s not completely untrue. Or at all for that matter. Willow Acres, wouldn’t you know it, dripping it Willow trees, fulfils the dream of the white picket fence (not a metaphor, searching for properties in Willow Acres on MyRoof.com, the first image you’ll see will be a white picket fence). The calm serenity of the estate promotes a quiet, gentle lifestyle of, an environment perfect for the new family or the old one (not that you’re old, you’re not old. You’re just wise).

With designated recreational areas for both children and adults, Willow Acres promotes a safety factor so high you could encourage your toddlers to blindfold themselves and walk around at midnight without fear for their wellbeing (but, you know…don’t). As for those of us who’ve breached the quarter century mark (let us call ourselves the “wise ones”), perhaps the biggest danger is taking a tennis ball to the face as we struggle to live up to the hype of Serena and Sharapova (grunting aside. Or included, whatever tickles your fancy) in the stunningly maintained private clay courts that stand central to the estate’s claim to fame. As part of said claim is the clubhouse, available for use by all home owners, a communal braai area and – this is perhaps what impressed me the most – a private conference facility. Besides the fact that there exists - I’m going to say it again - a private conference facility, the mind-set that this promotes is one of professional growth, no better indicator how invested Willow Acres is in your success. You just can’t buy that kind loyalty anymore – unless of course it’s from the caddy to whom you just slipped a fifty, to “accidently” knock your ball onto the green at the Silver Lakes Golf Course. Come on we’ve all done it.

Most noticeable upon arriving at the estate is the excellent array of the very latest and greatest (and yes, that’s an adjectival phrase that I’ve used many a time, yet it stands as the best way to describe the sheer class of objects to be described…also I like the alliteration) in crime-fighting, security-having, peaceful-sleep giving technology that frequents every portal of entry in the form of cameras with eyesight so clear that the proportions of an ant upon the image of a number plate – coincidentally of which is captured and run through the local police database in comparison of all lost and/or stolen vehicles – could be easily discerned, the secret life of ants a secret no more. Fortunately the well trained security personnel that man said portals are slightly more interested (the word “slightly” being an absolutely enormous euphemism) in who enters and exists the enclosure, than in staring at the feelers that sit atop an ant’s upper exoskeleton. Entry and exit aside, immense reinforced concrete barriers, awash in electrical wiring buzzing with potential difference, sit as sentries to fill the void between the known world inside and the unknown forces at work beyond the wall. Further than being the reason that safety and prosperity ensues, these fortifications lend the very feeling of safety to those they protect, meaning that come day or night, hail or sun, paradise or apocalypse, you will always feel safe within the confines of properties within Willow Acres (although you should probably run in the case of an apocalypse – I’ve started watching the Walking Dead recently).

Finally, if you remain unappeased and ill at ease with regards to your absolute sense of safety at Willow Acres Estate, CCTV monitors abound the grounds, giving extra eyes to the patrols to be found in the area, a system of man and machine interlinked by radio communication, which means that no matter what happens, you are no more than several seconds away from expert assistance in your time of need.

Your security is of the utmost importance at Willow Acres, as it is well understood, indeed ingrained in the minds and hearts of the men and women at work, that the excellent quality of life promised to those who choose Willow Acres as a home is only possible if residents remain unconcerned to utmost pertaining to their safety and the safety of their loved ones. Our care for your concern is unrivalled. And with a safety factor this high coupled with the kind of proximity to world class amenities that exists, the likes of the aforementioned Silver Lakes Golf Course, or Woodhill Golf Course and Country Club amongst them, there is little more that Willow Acres, or anyone else for that matter, can do to improve your standard of living.

In fact, forget the Hundred Acre Wood - Willow Acres for the win.
