Portland Estates real estate guide & listings for sale

The character of Portland Estates is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. There are about 10 parks close by for residents to explore and they are very well-distributed, resulting in them being very easy to access from most locations within the neighbourhood. This part of Halifax is also very quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic.


Cars are an excellent medium of transportation in Portland Estates. Nearby highways are easy to reach from any home in this part of the municipality, and it is very convenient to find a place to park. On the other hand, the public transit system in Portland Estates is not very practical. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are typically nearby. It is inconvenient for people travelling on foot to move around in Portland Estates since very few daily errands can be run without needing to use a vehicle.


Roughly three quarters of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the remainder are rented. Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about 60% of dwellings in this neighbourhood, but small apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. This part of Halifax experienced its biggest building boom following the year 2000, so most of the available properties are from this era. This neighbourhood is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes.


It is rarely practical for house buyers in this neighbourhood to reach the closest supermarket by walking. A limited number of restaurants can be found in this area. Regarding education, parents and their schoolchildren will value the proximity to primary schools and daycares, which are within walking distance from the majority of houses for sale in this part of Halifax. In contrast, Portland Estates does not have any high schools.
