Centrally located only 15 minutes to the airport and 20-30 minutes to Downtown Halifax, Fall River is one of the most picturesque areas within HRM with an abundance of lakes, wide open spaces and large spacious lots. Fall River is a fast growing, well planned community and offers a mix of older properties and brand new developments, each with its own unique personality and many offering lake front living. All homes have septic systems, some are on a well and some subdivisions have city water. It all depends on what you are looking for. There is a good choice of housing types with a varying price tag ranging from $225,000 upwards of $1m.
The area is well serviced with amenities including a new Recreation Centre, Sobeys, doctors, dentists, cool cafes and a tap and grill/bar. Major shopping is only a 10 minute drive to Bedford, Sackville (via Highway 102) or Dartmouth Crossing (via Highway 118).
The schools are sought after and some of the best in metro. There are three Elementary schools serving the Fall River Community – Ash Lee Jefferson, offering early French Immersion (Gr Primary – 6), Holland Road Elementary (Gr Primary -6) and Waverly Memorial (Gr Primary – 6). George P Vanier is the Junior High (Grades 7-8) and Lockview High School serves Grades 9-12.
Fall River is an excellent, very friendly and family oriented community.
