Purcell's Cove Overview

The Purcell’s Cove Road is considered by many to be one of the real estate treasures in Halifax. Typically an upscale market, there are many homes located on the water and many others located in quaint subdivisions. There are also subdivisions built during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s that are more affordable.

The Purcell’s Cove Road begins just past the Armdale Rotary, off the Herring Cove Road. It follows the North West Arm, an extension of the Halifax Harbour that separates the peninsula from the mainland. The drive is very scenic, with several yacht clubs, historic forts, and breathtaking ocean views. The area offers various parks and recreation areas as well. The road terminates in the quaint fishing village of Purcell’s Cove.

The commute to the downtown core from most subdivisions is no more than 15 to 20 minutes.

There are many shopping facilities within a short drive and there is public transport available through Metro Transit.
