Porters Lake real estate guide & listings for sale

Porters Lake is very quiet, as the streets are generally very calm. Parks are rather difficult to access since they are sparse. Despite that, there are around 10 public green spaces close by for residents to unwind in.


Moving around by car is very easy in this community. Many properties for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, and it is very easy to park. On the other hand, public transit users may experience very few choices in this part of Halifax due to the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, property owners are served by a few bus lines. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for residents in this community as carrying out daily needs is very impractical.


Homeowners occupy around 90% of the dwellings in the community while renters occupy the remainder. The predominant housing types in this community are single detached homes and townhouses. About one quarter of properties in this community were constructed following the year 2000, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. This part of the municipality also has quite a good choice of housing size options; there is a higher proportion of three bedroom homes in this area.


There are only a few primary schools in Porters Lake and thus they can be a rather long walk away. Moreover, this part of Halifax does not contain any high schools. In addition, families may consider it very hard for their schoolchildren to reach daycares as a pedestrian. Regarding eating, in all but a very small number of cases, a car is required to buy groceries.
