The Stages

The Homesteads

Our inspiration for The Stages goes back to 1905, when families used to use this area for their seasonal fishing stages in the summer months.  This small community of summer shanties on stilts, served as a place to eat and sleep during the age of sail out on the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Today,  a compelling residential development within Blackbush Resort called “The Stages” is a 42 lot neighborhood offering a rare opportunity for ownership at one of Atlantic Canada’s premier beach communities.  Parcel Lots will start at $350,000 with residence built separately. Parcel Lot includes elevated grading for site footprint, sewer, water, and driveway culvert installation. The development is protected by covenants that ensure your time here is relaxing and fulfilling. The lots are being sold with 4 standard home models but for those wishing to join our custom-built home program, it will be provided & offered for an additional fee.

Having the opportunity to revitalize this historical area and bring it back to its once thriving wharf community, is an honorable gesture and undertaking to extend the legacy of Old Tracadie Harbour.  What makes this development attractive is the opportunity for family to be near urban amenities but at the same time have a small town beach community vibe, also leveraging the nearby resort and fish market for potential employment opportunities for youth.  

The Commons at Blackbush offers families seasonal living through fractional ownership. These income producing properties will be offering premium services and amenities to provide all comforts for owners and guests on site, as well as rental marketing and year-round property management.  A dedicated team will oversee the front-end service provision as well as the back-end business management services.

Fractional ownership is a method of purchasing a property that involves individual ownership.  An individual owner can adopt into the Blackbush rental pool program to maximize their usage time as an income property.  A fractional unit gives the owners certain privileges, such as blocked off weeks when they can use the property, gifting stays to family members, as well as generating rental income when resort unit is not being used for personal stays.  This option makes vacation home ownership much more practical for many people. 

The rental pool program is not mandatory, but an owner may wish to hold their fractional unit for personal usage only, or for renting at their own accord, that is entirely their choice.

The Homesteads of Blackbush is located just down the road from The Stages Community, adjacent to Watts Road and National Park area.
The residential properties within the Homesteads will all be built and featured as passive design homes.

A passive house is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint.
It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling. 

Living in a passive house means living in a space that is naturally warmer, healthier and more comfortable. This comfort inside
your home is unmatched because of the way energy efficiency solutions are integrated into the architectural design.

Blackbush Overall Plan

Blackbush at Old Tracadie Harbour provides owners and guests with premium hospitality in one of North America’s premier beach destinations. 

This safe island community is looking to welcome new families and members who are like minded in how they value ecological, environmental and sustainable living.  The residential development will endeavor to preserve and enhance this coastal wildlife sanctuary.

Living at Blackbush is for those who want to be immersed in the experience of living alongside a majestic seaside landscape and to be a steward in preserving it for future generations.  This is a place that slows down enough to listen to the soft roar of the ocean waves or enjoy the calming sounds of local wildlife at dawn. 

A unique community feature, The Stages offers an extensive trail system which will connect all homes to the resort, forest and coastal beach areas, making recreational retreats and everyday living almost seamless. 

The real attraction here is a balanced lifestyle.  Residents here can enjoy a relaxed pace of life while also having urban amenities and attractions nearby, with airport, live theatre, music, casino, art galleries, shopping and restaurants. 

With much excitement, we are thrilled to unveil our residential ownership opportunity with 42 lots in “The Stages at Blackbush” which is a collection of year round properties.  The second development is an eco-friendly Community featuring 27 lots will be found just down the road at
