This country home in Uxbridge sold for $2,725,000

Nice homes are, well, nice and all, but land is still king when it comes to real estate with the top two and three of the top five most expensive homes in Durham Region sold last month by country estates.

At number 1 is a two-storey country charmer on nearly 12 acres on Concession Road 5 in Uxbridge that sold for $2,725,000.

Rustic on the outside with all the modern touches on the inside, the former Maple Grove School House features a bar, sauna, loft, home theatre and wine cellar, along with tastefully decorated rooms and a stunning kitchen, along with landscaped and forested grounds outside with a saltwater pool and tennis courts.

Number two on the list is a 48-acre outdoor paradise on Concession Road 2 in Uxbridge that sold for $2,707,000. This Georgian-style 6,500 sq. ft. home features a Pilates studio/gym, seven bedrooms, two kitchens and a deck overlooking a spring-fed pond.

Number three is the first ‘urban’ property, a 5,000 sq. ft custom home on Spruce Hill Road in Pickering. With 10-foot coffered ceilings on the main floor, a chef’s kitchen and a spa-like ensuite, this ravine-lot home sold for $2.7 million.

At number 4 is another Georgian-style home, this one near the Mitchell’s Corner community in north Courtice, just east of the Oshawa border.

An executive home with five bedrooms and four baths, this home on Tooley Road features a games room and an outdoor oasis with a heated saltwater pool and an outdoor city. This estate home sold for $2,691,000.

This waterfront home in Ajax sold for $2,539,800

Number 5 on Ontoro Boulevard in Ajax truly is ‘country in the city.’ Situated right on the shores of Lake Ontario just minutes from both downtown Ajax and downtown Whitby, this rare gem offers 1,400 feet of shoreline and waterfront views from all major rooms.

With two-plus bedrooms and an open concept design, this home sold for $2,539,800.

At the other end of the spectrum, Zoocasa sold five homes last month for $480,000 or less, including one home on Quebec Street near downtown Oshawa that sold for $370,000.

Four of the five most inexpensive homes sold last month by Zoocasa were, in fact, sold in Oshawa.

At number two was a condo apartment on Bond Street right in the heart of downtown that went for $400,000; number four on the list was another downtown condo apartment – this one on William St. E – that sold for $475,000 and number 5 was an apartment in Oshawa’s south end on Glen Street that sold for $480,000.

The only non-Oshawa home on the list was number 3, a cozy bungalow in Scugog Township that went for $430,000.
