About Maurice Muise

I am a self-employed professional in the Mergers & Acquisitions Industry. My wife is a homemaker who spends much of her time with our two grandsons that live close by.

Maurice Muise purchased this house in 2006

Why Maurice Muise chose Harbourview

This property was purchased April 2006. I took four months off from work and hired sub-trades to completely gut and renovate the whole house from top to bottom. The only thing remaining was the staircase to the second level. It is a Douglas-Fur staircase that was refinished top to bottom. The finishes are hardwood, tile and slate.

What makes this house unique

The home is on a quiet street overlooking Halifax harbour. You can gaze and enjoy the marine traffic that sails back and forth in front of the house while you sit on a two-level deck sipping on your favourite drink.

It is a ten minute walk to the Dartmouth Ferry that ferries you to the Halifax waterfront where you have access to many restaurants that serve the best seafood dishes imaginable. On Saturdays, walk 10 minutes to the Farmers Market next to the Dartmouth Ferry and choose locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables. There is also an opportunity to choose freshly caught fish at this market.

For the athlete, there is a SportsPlex 7 minutes from the house where you can workout, play racket ball or go for a swim. And, last but not least shopping is close by.

Perfect Dartmouth Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Maurice's wonderful home was perfect for my family's stay in the Halifax-area. It was well maintained, had a perfect harbour-view, and conveniently situated for visiting our family in Dartmouth and taking the ferry into downtown Halifax. And don't miss visiting the fantastic baked goods and coffee at Two If By Sea, which is easy to walk over to first thing in the morning.

We hope to be back next time we're out east & would recommend both the full house and guest suite to all visitors!
