Dartmouth real estate guide & listings for sale
Dartmouth offers a relaxed ambience and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. Public green spaces are very well-distributed and there are over 150 of them close by for residents to unwind in, making them easy to access. This part of Halifax is also quiet, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - however some areas can be quite loud, especially closer to the railway line.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in this part of the municipality. Coming across a parking spot is quite easy, and the majority of properties for sale are a rather short car ride from the closest highway. In contrast, travelling by transit can be difficult in Dartmouth as a result of the low service level. Thankfully, the community is linked by around 30 bus lines, and bus stops are ordinarily nearby. Dartmouth is not very convenient for those who travel by foot as very few daily needs can be met by walking.
Around one third of properties in Dartmouth were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. Single detached homes are the main housing type, representing about 40% of dwellings in this area, while small apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. The split between homeowners and renters is about even. This area has a good choice of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
Primary schools are convenient to walk to from most homes for sale in Dartmouth. In contrast, high schools are not very numerous and accordingly may require an extended walk to get to. With respect to food, reaching one of around 40 supermarkets on foot is an option for some, but not all, house buyers in Dartmouth. Residents benefit from over 300 restaurants and cafes as well.
