Greetings! I'm currently outside of Toronto, but have been looking for the last couple of years for a place to call home in NS. I came down twice last year with my young daughter where we focused mostly on the valley and south mountain, where I was really hoping to find something this year. When we came back in the spring, we hit the south shore and a couple of other places on the way to Cape Breton. The trouble with NS is that one is spoiled for choice!
The top 3 contenders (so far) are located in Williamsdale, Dean and Middle River. Does anybody here have experience in any of those areas? I've already checked out all the obvious stuff like distances to libraries, stores, gas, airports, etc but I'm more interested in things like, how vibrant and welcoming is the community? Is there a thriving market? Cultural events? What's it like to live there? Figures the properties with the best potential fit are all in places I haven't really had a chance to explore.
I plan on coming down again in June, hopefully to finally find the place - any input pro or con about the aforementioned areas greatly appreciated - thanks!
Oh, I just tripped over a few old articles on prospective drilling by Petroworth at Lake Ainslie - does anyone know if that went ahead?
