Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Halifax Estates / Wilbur-by-the-Sea is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.

In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Halifax Estates / Wilbur-by-the-Sea neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year.
