An 82-acre farm property in Scugog straight out of a Hallmark movie sold for $3.3 million last month, the most expensive home to trade ownership in Durham Region in July, according to real estate broker Zoocasa.

The Shirley Road property – just south of Port Perry – comes with a 5-bedroom stone and brick house, a guest house with a full size kitchen, a professionally restored century barn with nine stalls and eight paddocks, a commercial grade greenhouse, a pole barn, mechanic’s shop and a chicken coop, to name a few of the amenities.

The property can be used as a grand country estate, a horse farm and even a wedding venue. The home sold June 10.

Number two on the list is a 5-bedroom estate on William Street in Claremont in north Pickering that sold for $2,744,000 July 15, while number three was a 4-bedroom urban estate on Spruce Hill Road in west Pickering that changed hands July 209 for $2.49 million.

Number four was in Uxbridge: a 6-bedroom country paradise on 64 acres on Concession 3 that sold July 6 for $2,250,000.

Fifth on the list was a ravine bungalow on Shepherd Rd. W (near Heber Downs Conservation Area) in Whitby that sold for $2,218,000.

Oshawa, as per usual, dominated the five most affordable homes sold last month, with one building in the city’s north-end University District claiming the top three spots.
