Porter's Lake Real Estate


Real estate in Porter's Lake is growing rapidly, yet it remains largely rural. The largely country setting coupled with relatively close proximity to Burnside Industrial Park in Dartmouth, and even downtown Halifax, make Porter's Lake a perfect place to live. Many residents work in the city and are happy to commute back to their suburban setting each day. Housing in Porter's Lake has increased in price over the past few years thanks to a real estate boom, but prices still remain affordable. Many homes have cropped up around the 24 kilometre long lake, and their homeowners profit from lakeside living by partaking in numerous watersports.
