Upper Tantallon







Upper Tantallon

One of the more desirable bedroom communities in HRM (similar to Kingswood, Hammonds Plains and Fall River in terms of space and lot sizes). Upper Tantallon is a great choice for families looking for good schools, plenty of space, housing affordability and proximity to the ocean and nature.

The commute into Halifax is pretty decent, approx. 30-40 minutes depending on the time of day. Like many of these semi rural communities, public transportation is lacking somewhat. There is a 330 commuter express line which links residents along the Highway 103 to Halifax’s downtown core.


Upper Tantallon and Area Schools:

Tantallon Junior Elementary (Pre-Primary and early Immersion Program)

Local Amenities:

The Upper Tantallon area has several small strip malls with an Atlantic Superstore, Shopper’s Drug Mart, a Canadian Tire, a drop in medical centre and a British store and café. Additional shopping can be found at Tantallon Plaza (also known locally as the Hubley Centre), a retail plaza offering many stores and services including Sobey’s GoodLife Fitness, Dollarama and more. Tantallon Library is small but awesome, there’s a farmer’s market in the warm weather and lots of small businesses trying to do more. People here want it to be a vibrant community.

The Bike and Bean Café is a local Upper Tantallon hotspot with a great community atmosphere. It is close to the rails to trails and a busy stopping place for cyclists and hikers alike.

St Margaret’s Centre is a busy but well run recreation and leisure facility for hockey, skating lessons, gymnastics and many more indoor activities.

As you can see, Upper Tantallon is a great neighbourhood with access to plenty of amenities. It’s a short drive to Hammond’s Plains and Bayers Lake for additional amenities and shopping.

And if you are a beach lover, the South Shore has some of the most beautiful beaches in Nova Scotia. Ten of the most perfect beaches are located within a short drive from one another and only a short drive from Upper Tantallon.
