Hants County Realty

From hobby farms to village condos, Hants County, Nova Scotia has something to offer the most discriminating home hunter.

Spanning communities from Enfield to Windsor, this drive will charm you! There are areas, such as East Hants, that are experiencing a huge burst of development, thanks to it's proximity to the Halifax/Dartmouth area and International Airport. But at the same time, you can still find those secret spots, yet to be touched by the hand of the steely developer.

For the adventurer, Highway 215 from Shubenacadie through to Walton offers a host of activities for you to enjoy. Start your day at the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park, where the otters and bears will be more than happy you stopped by. After lunch, enjoy riding the rapids of the world highest tides as the Bay of Fundy's tidal boar races across the ocean floor.

From craft stores featuring the wares of many fine craftsmen, to art galleries, there is something for everybody in this Central Nova Scotia County. Wind your way along Old Hwy #14 as you venture from Nine Mile River through the picturesque Rawdon Hills into the charming town of Windsor, host of the popular Hants County Exhibition.

Housing prices range from the sprawling estate to the cozy, seaside cottage. Family oriented developments abound, and at this point, housing values are still on the rise despite the recent shake ups in our economy. If stability and security are priorities on your home hunting list, this area of Nova Scotia should not be overlooked.

The county has seen a recent rise in new, high tech, public school buildings including new elementary schools in East Hants for Enfield, Elmsdale, Lantz and Milford, as well as a new Middle School. It is a county where people care, about their communities and their neighbors. Numerous recreational activities abound including hockey, curling, swimming, ATV clubs, racing, and more.

For those who are looking for the perfect artist's retreat, there are ample communities along the scenic routes where true inspiration can be found. Enjoy the charm and innovation of the Age of Sail in the registered historic village of Maitland, where W.D. Lawrence built his world famous sailing vessels, or walk on the ocean floor at low tide at Burncoat Head. Enjoy fantastic bass fishing from the shores of your Tennecape cottage, or snuggle in for a hearty winter storm in a classic farm house overlooking the bay.

If you wish to be close to the province's capital city of Halifax, Hants County has you covered. Located within 30minutes of picturesque downtown Halifax, the communities of Enfield, Elmsdale and Lantz have experienced rapid growth due to the urban sprawl as people seek a more peaceful lifestyle that still offers all major amenitities.
