Porters Lake real estate guide & listings for sale
Porters Lake is very good for those who need quiet surroundings, as the streets are very calm. It is rather challenging to access green spaces in the community since they are sparse. Still, there are about 10 parks close by for residents to enjoy.
The preferred approach to get around in Porters Lake is very often a car. Many real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, and accessing a place to park is quite easy. However, Porters Lake is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, homeowners benefit from a few bus lines. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for home buyers in Porters Lake since carrying out daily needs is very difficult by walking.
The buildings in this community are quite new, because roughly one quarter of its dwellings were constructed after the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. Single detached homes and townhouses are the main housing type in this part of Halifax. Roughly 90% of the population of this community own their home and the remainder are renters.

In all but a very small number of cases, a car is needed to purchase groceries. Concerning education, there are only a few primary schools in this area and therefore they can be a rather long walk away. Furthermore, Porters Lake does not have any high schools. Likewise, parents may find it very difficult for their children to get to daycares as a pedestrian.
