About the neighbourhood
On shores of peaceful lake, minutes from Peninsula of Halifax, yet miles from the noise and congestion. Within 20 kms. of downtown Halifax, easy commute on 4 lane divided highway. Great location for morning walks, as the subdivision has a loop walk that is about 5 kms. The trans canada trail is within l km of the flat (a bike rental coffee shop is a short drive away). More serious hikers may enjoy the Wooden's River / Bluff Trail hikes and explore nature on well marked trails. This property is on a peninsula jutting into a large lake, with sandy beach just steps from your private deck facing the water. Westward orientation gives you front row seats for beautiful sunsets. We have canoes and a paddle boat to help you explore the many coves and inlets of this lake.
