Spacious & Comfortable

Our Home

Historic and beautiful Halifax! Spacious and light filled 1919 detached 2 storey on a quiet cul de sac which is centrally located just 1km from the harbour which is the heart of the historic and vibrant provincial capital of Nova Scotia, Halifax, population 400,000.

More about this property

On the ground floor are a large eat-in kitchen, a large living room with fireplace, and a large den. Upstairs are 3 large bright bedrooms - one with queen bed, and double beds in others. There is a master ensuite, and one full bath upstairs. Full laundry is in the basement. A large deck is located at the back of the house leading to a lawn and gardens.


Our Neighbourhood

Despite being so central, our home is on a very quiet street. We are just a 10 minute walk from beautiful Halifax Harbour and the ferry system, adjacent to major bike trails, and a 2 minute walk from Lake Banook, part of the historic Shubenacadie Canal system. The extensive public bus system has stops just one minute away.

More about the neighbourhood

Many restaurants and shops are within walking and driving distance. We have mountain bikes and canoe for your enjoyment.

Our home is central within Nova Scotia and the East Coast. Nova Scotia has many beautiful areas to explore - whether you like the history of old forts and the battlefields of the English and French in the 17th and 18th centuries, wild coastlines, great beaches and fishing villages, or vineyards and great wines. A three-hour drive takes you to Yarmouth at the province's south end and the ferry to Maine, or 4 hours north takes you to the rugged beauty of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. From the Halifax airport you can take direct flights to the UK, and major US and Canadian cities.

As part of an exchange, you can also enjoy our vacation cabin on two acres of woodland, a 1.5 hours drive south on the province's South Shore in the seaside village of Vogler's Cove. Very near are the undeveloped and wild beaches that make the area famous.


About Us

We are both town planners. We have 2 grown daughters that are now out in the world making their own adventures. We appreciate history, culture, museums, and nature. We have done two successful exchanges, a year-long home/job swap to Australia, and a 2 week holiday in England.

More about us

We are looking to exchange for anywhere in Europe, also interested in South America, and Southwest US.
