TEN THINGS TO LOVE ABOUT WEST END HALIFAX

Located on the Halifax PeninsulaWest End Halifax is home to many affordable family neighbourhoods with easy access to amenities and quality public schools serving all age groups, including Westmount Elementary, Oxford School and Citadel High.

So much to see and enjoy, and a whole lotta living to be done. Let’s explore:

#1: 7136 Spruce Street is located in the heart of the West End, just minutes from shopping, recreation and schools - ideal for a family just starting out. Roomy, easy to maintain and move-in ready, this is an opportunity to own a home on the Peninsula at a price you can afford.
