The Hammonds Plains Road is among the oldest roads in Nova Scotia. There have been homes along the main road for many generations, however, in the last 20 years many large subdivisions have been and are still being developed. These subdivisions typically feature large properties ( 1-2 Acres), septic systems and wells instead of municipal sewage and water services and offer a wide variety of home styles and leisure activities. There is currently ample opportunity to build a new home on a large selection of pre-approved home sites.

It is accessible from either the Bedford Highway or the Trans Canada Highway, route # 102. It takes roughly 25 to 40 minutes to reach downtown depending upon where you are located along the road.
