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.

Floor Plans

Let's take a short tour of the do's and don'ts of Floor plan Layouts by looking at some other houses for Sale in South Africa.

Many South Africans have no real clue how to choose a layout when they start thinking of building a new home. The question of South African Architecture is in a sense also the question of identity. Older European cultures have a very strong identity to be found in its architecture, but our relative younger Western Culture in South Africa seems to go through somewhat of an identity crisis. If we're not conforming to our neighbours, we tend to copy silly things from our European Ancestors.

Not convinced? Ask yourself this: Is your house a South African? Probably not! Many of us would have to agree that their homes are not really South African citizens, but are instead overweight Italians. Some would have to say that their houses are in fact a snobbish little British Queen. Heck, I'm sure in Cape Town many people can almost hear their homes say "Één bijzonder goede avond toegewenst" when they arrive back from work!

Rule #1: Go for something South African.

Yes this is a case of taste and preference, but you know you can't go wrong when you go local. South African homes are sturdy, strong, no frills and in the local sense an absolute classic. A good example is this house in Rietondale in Pretoria:

In my career I have seen that a very important rule when dreaming up your new home, is to follow functionality. It is quite remarkable how easy the Aesthetics follow if you simply stick to this rule. To cut a long story short,

Rule #2: Keep it functional

To quickly estimate the value of a house, we would count bathrooms and bedrooms. Remember to put a function to each room, and think about sizes. A fourth bedroom for example could very easily be too small for any real purpose, or force you to shrink your living area to a dysfunctional size. A good example of good function is the top floor of this property in Equestria in Pretoria, where the  size of the guest  bathroom was kept functional without falling for the temptation to increase the stairwell or room size.

Another great example of good functionality is the patio area of this property in West Beach, Cape Town, that can easily be closed off to double as a dining room, when the weather changes.

Rule #3: Think about your lifestyle

We normally move or build new homes when our lifestyles change like when we get married, have kids or change jobs. Quite often the actual lifestyle is different to the one we expected. Have a good look at how things will be, will you really be home that much? Will a braai area, bar and Jacuzzi really be used as much as you think?

Check out picture nr 3 of this property in Willow Park Manor in Pretoria, can you spot the White Elephant? (Hint: It's white, and you can fit an elephant in it)

Rule #4: Think about the future.

Time passes quicker than you think. Think about what will happen in the next seven years. Make sure you pick something that you can change easily when your needs change. A good example is this property in Table view in Cape Town: goodbye third garage, helo gym!

Rule #5 The North Face

Do not for a second underestimate the value of a large North facing surface. In the Southern hemisphere the North face brings in all the light and heat to a property. Think of any home you fondly remember for its warmth and pleasantness, then notice its large northern facing surface. Especially bedrooms and living areas should face north. Sometimes one is forced to have some rooms face south. Try to give these rooms extra large windows, and make sure it is not rooms you will spend lots of time in. Watch out though, you spend much more time in a kitchen than you think! A cool trick to have your house have more North facing rooms, is to go for a Southern entrance if possible.

We can find a good example of this method in this suburban home in Bryanston, Johannesburg.
