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.

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!

Sterling Silver at Silver Lakes

I’m going to paint you a word picture – mostly because I like using big words, but also because I think it may help get my point across.

The soothing, sultry sounds of – no I’m kidding, no one uses that much alliteration in the first sentence. But in all honesty, ahem:

Imagine, if you will, standing at a gate. It is beautiful, of wrought iron, strung out into patterns that entice the curious mind to contemplate it, yet still formidable in its size and composure, standing guard, ever vigilant, over the grounds that are to be found beyond.

Yet it opens for you, smoothly, soundlessly, permitting your entrance, as though inviting you in so as to show off the splendour that it protects. Walking through them, you suddenly find that the noises of the outside world are dulled, fading into the background. The air becomes sweeter, the scent of palms leaves to be found within the light breeze upon your face. The sounds of running water in the distance add to the ambience of the strange relaxation that seems to have been achieved here despite the hustle and bustle of the city-scape that was left behind not minutes before. Green pastures spread out before you, meeting the horizon in a merging of colours – blues and greys of the sky meeting the greens of the land, fading into the distance.

To your left, the source of the sounds of water. A lake, its surface that of glass, unbroken, clear, transparent as far down as the sun’s rays will reach. Yet to your right, something seemingly out of place in this oasis…houses. But how could it be that in the midst of all that thrives in natural beauty, there are houses? Is it at all possible that people actually call this haven, dare you think it, home? For never in all your days, not once throughout your travels have you encountered mortal existence so close to place that speaks of eternity, such is it’s resemblance to the paradise of the pearly gates. Yet there they stand, their marble walls shimmering across time and space to reach your eyes, to dazzle them with the spectacular architecture that has seen these Properties For Sale in Silver Lakes become known as some of the most painstakingly thought-out, most beautiful constructed in all of the capital. It cannot be that these marvels of modern engineering and architecture find refuge within the walls of this great enclosure. Yet, somehow, they do.

Your eye is caught, and mournfully turns away from the splendour of the built environment, to find yet another treasure, one so exquisite that for a moment your forget about the houses, the lake, the gate...For it is with stunning realisation that you come to understand that the lawns upon which you previously walked were not simply lawns, but a course – a golf course at Silver Lakes. It is as if you walk a dream-scape, such is the departure from reality, the extent of which it pushes your very beliefs of what is at all conceivable - by human standards at least. Perhaps you frequent the mind of a being greater than yourself, the thoughts of this creature creating the world that you now find yourself in – the nature of the paradise surely needing the hand of divine intervention to exist.

But, if this is indeed the daydream of a god beyond reckoning, who is to say that all thoughts will be of crystal lakes and gorgeous gates. Who is to say this dream will not turn into a nightmare, the likes of which sees all the evils of our world and the worlds beyond turn against you, advance, teeth bared, claws unsheathed, deep growls a prequel to the warm breath that burns your nostrils as though fire and poison…

You shiver. You pass it off as a result of the cold – humans shiver when it’s cold…Perhaps  this was not the paradise you thought it was, for t has no visible protection from- And then  you see that walls, the guard towers, the motion sensors strewn across the ground as though their stock was inexhaustible. A smile breaks your lips, your face warms, your muscles relax. It would be near entertaining watching the creatures of darkness such as concocted by the dreams of the greater being,  breach the perimeter defences – the intimidating walls topped with electrical wiring daring them to try - let alone avoid the sensors, the cameras, the sentinels of the grounds. Such is the security at Silver lakes that any doubts you had with regards to your safety dissipate into the air, leaving smoky trails in their wake, as though sad to see the release of your conscious from their icy grip of despair…

Strangely enough, that was based on fact. Silver Lakes Golf Estate is certainly one of the foremost ventures in gated living, the safety aspect always at the main concern of all those involved. Yet the security side of things certainly does not mean that the residents who call this Eden a home are not able to enjoy life to the fullest, in having access to the finest in country-style etiquette, only a few hundred meters from their door…Perhaps this is a giant’s daydream.
