Small and perfectly cute places like this, and on the peninsula, come along rarely.

Nestled just inside a quiet neighbourhood but otherwise just across the street from the Halifax Shopping Centre, it turns out you can have a cottage right in the middle of the city. With green spaces close by and in several directions, you might be coaxed into regular walks away from your sweet little back deck from time to time. The perimeter of the backyard is lined with mature trees, likely keeping many of the neighbourhood birds happy.
Inside looks to be in good shape, just fine to move right into but with an enticing potential to renovate in your own way and at your own pace in the coming years.
The listing describes the back yard as big enough to build a garage, and I might add that a sauna would be great out there, too. There is so much potential, inside and out, to make this what you want it to be.
It's important to know that there are some construction plans in place for Bayer's Road, just one house over. While this is sure to be disruptive, the longer term offers some great improvements with improved transit, and a bikeway. According to Pam Berman, in a CBC news article:
"The Bayers Road project includes two bus-only lanes and a sidewalk on one side and a bikeway on the other side.
Municipal officials hope to connect the bikeway to the Urban Greenway bike path along the rail cut and the Chain of Lakes trail at some point."
Overall, this house could be a charm to live in right away and an excellent investment for the longer term.
