Clayton Park offers a mix of old and new housing of all sizes located a 20-minute drive from downtown Halifax, making it a popular house-hunting location for a range of buyers.

Old Clayton Park, located roughly between Dunbrack Street and the Bedford Basin, was largely built in the 1970s and has larger lots with mature trees. Clayton Park West, located west of Lacewood Drive, was developed from the 1990s and features smaller lots with detached, semi-detached homes and townhouses.

Mobile or mini-homes are available for around $60,000 off Main Avenue and houses start around $170,000.

Peter Jeffery of Royale LePage says the older parts of Clayton Park (centred around Clayton Park Drive) offer single detached family dwellings (ranging from $200,000 to $1,000,000), semi-detached homes (averaging approximately $260,000), townhouses (averaging approximately $250,000) and condominiums (ranging from $140,000 to $400,000).

Newer homes around Parkland Drive are priced between $300,000 and $500,000 for large-sized three- or four- bedroom detached houses.

The area acts mainly as a dormitory suburb for workers driving or taking the regular bus services to downtown Halifax or Dartmouth or in the other direction to the Bayers Lake Business Park.
