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.

Silver Woods Estate Security

In the past, I’ve used big, expensive words, visual metaphors and mental paintings worthy of Picasso, in order to entice a sense of want with regards to the areas I’ve written about.

Today is different.

Today I feel no need to enthral you with descriptions of lavish and grand settings. Today I do not wish to appeal to the homeowner, the parent, the economist in you. Today I speak to the human.

I have, quite recently, come to realise something about how where we live speaks of who we are, in a very real way. And I’m not talking about the size of our house or the price tag attached to it. I’m talking about how we as people interact with our environment. You see, as homosapien sapiens, we are the only species, past or present, to actively construct the habitats that we, for lack of a better word, inhabit. We do not, perhaps cannot, accept the “way things are” without casting a curious eye over the world before us, unconsciously realising ways in which that world may be improved upon. And it is that improvement that has been achieved through the construction of this latest – it fits the description thus far – habitat, Silver Woods Country Estate. Don’t believe us? These properties for sale in Silver Woods will confirm everything 

The estate speaks for itself – the feel of a close knit, integrated village is one that springs to mind upon first sight. Strength indeed in numbers, the layout of the enclosure ensures that even without walls, residents feel secure in the knowledge that the society that has been created around them stands in unity – all for one and one for all, if you will. The idea behind security at Silver Woods extends beyond the physical barriers to incorporate the people living within them.  The idea of “having each other’s backs” is one that is certainly exemplified when looking at the residents of Silver Woods. Neighbourliness is encouraged, and a friendlier bunch you have never met. The layout of the estate affords privacy to each and every individual, yet not so much to alienate home owners from one another. In urban geography (under who’s watchful eye I had toiled for near five years), this idea is called public surveillance, and is based on the concept of mutual responsibility of space in order to create a feeling of safety. This is perhaps no more true than in the case of Silver Woods - and its developers, keenly aware of the direct impact that safety has on our modern quality of life, have incorporated this ideology into the construction of the enclosure.

Still, there is only so much you and I can do against the forces of evil seek to destroy the bonds that hold our communities (and security gates) together. At times, we need assistance. Fortunately, the men and women entasked with your protection at Silver Woods stand ready to oblige. Goliath-like walls topped with high voltage electrical fencing are the first of many obstacles to be encountered by would-be intruders. Strict access control regulations seem nought but words on paper, until we see the steely glint of the black gates (not unlike the entrance to Mordor), poised as the physical manifestation of said words, over the portals to this paradise. Infra-red motion sensors stand as sentinels of the night, peering through the darkness with a penetrating gaze. Finally, regular patrol routes, taken by professional security personnel, ensure that, in the unlikely (excuse me, impossible) event that an intruder manages to circumvent the vast array of protection protocol in place, said intruder would not be able to move about undetected. The best of both man and machine, you’re more or less being guarded by Robocop.

Of course, we would not have you believe that Silver Woods Estate is built in the midst of a swamp of demons and dangers. Much like the enclosure itself, the Pretoria east area that it occupies ensconces a feeling of safety, reflected by the gated neighbourhoods.  Situated in close proximity to the prestigious Silver Lakes Golf Estate, possibly amongst the most sheltered areas in all of Gauteng, one would enjoy weightlessness of freedom from crime and concern if one chose to make one’s home here. Local amenities bask in the economic value attached to crime levels approaching zero.  And with office parks as well guarded as residential areas, one need not fear the slightest intrusion whilst at the old salt mines.

You see, I have, quite recently, come to realise something about how where we live speaks of who we are. It speaks of our concerns, our fears, our anxieties. Yet it also speaks of our efforts, our triumphs, our victories in conquering unease. It speaks of a human spirit undying in nature, never idle never complacent with mediocrity. And all of this defines who we are as people, as a species. We are human, and it is human nature to seek out the best, the greatest, and in the lack thereof, to create it.

It is with great pleasure that I can say that in this instance, we have created the best. We have created Silver Woods Country Estate, and we’ve created it for you.
