Leased Land Community Focus: Springfield Estates

Once you’ve chosen your new mini home, your next biggest decision is where you want to place it. Havill’s has great relationships with a number of leased land communities throughout the HRM, and surrounding areas, with each offering different amenities and advantages to residents. One of our most popular communities is Springfield Estates owing to its fantastic location and oversized lots, and consequently lots there don’t come up too often – however we’ve just had a couple of openings in this highly sought-after community.

The large, flat lots of Springfield Estates offer space and privacy, and are suitable for any sized home. There’s a mix of families, young professionals, and retirees who call this community home, and this is a place where neighbours look out for each other. Sackville is a town that attracts young families looking for great schools, sports facilities, and access to parks and recreation areas. In fact, almost a fifth of the population of Sackville is under 20 – an unusual demographic in Nova Scotia. 

Location wise, Springfield Estates is close to everything you need, including major transit routes to get you wherever you need to be in the HRM. Living there, you’re as close enough to downtown Halifax as you need to be, but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The nearby Downsview Plaza shopping area has a major grocery store, movie theatre, chain restaurants serving everything from pizza to burritos to Thai food, and there are also lots of independent stores throughout the Sackville area. Those who love the great outdoors will enjoy Springfield Estates’ proximity to hiking trails and lakes for swimming and fishing.

Because Springfield Estates is a premium community, there is high demand for these lots and homes placed here consequently have high resale value. Placing your new mini home on a lot at Springfield Estates can be a sound investment, and a great place to live.

If you’re interested in placing your new mini home at Springfield Estates or any leased land communities in the HRM, contact us for further information. We’d love to assist you in choosing your perfect new home, and the best community in which to place it.
