A custom home combining nature and luxury north of Brooklin and a pond-front estate in north Pickering highlight home sales in Durham Region last month, with six properties changing hands in June for $2.5 million or more.

There were also a few bargains, with three Oshawa condos – two in the downtown – as well as a cottage and a shared ownership property near Port Perry that sold for less than $500,000.

A six-bedroom home north of Brawley Road between Brooklin and Myrtle in north Whitby topped the selling list when it was released June 23 for $3,550,000.

The 5,800 sq. ft. Calistoga Drive home, sitting on a 6.2-acvre ravine lot, also boasts plenty of inside charm with a grand main entrance with 21-foot ceilings, a gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry, an elegant master suite with a spa-like ensuite and a driveway that holds 13 cars.

At #2 was another six-bedroom estate, this one on the shores of Greenburn Pond near Salem Road and the Fifth Concession in Pickering, just north of the northern boundary of Ajax. This 5,000 sq. ft. waterfront home is Muskoka-style living within minutes of the city.

The home comes with $500,000 in upgrades, water views from nearly every room, quartz counter tops, a home theatre system and extensive outdoor landscaping. The property sold June 25 for $3,475,000.

At #3 is a five-bedroom home in downtown Brooklin on Queen Street that sold June 30 for $3 million, followed by a property near the village of Ashburn in north Whitby on Wilson House Drive ($2.9 million), a house on Rosebank Road in Pickering ($2.6 million) and a country estate on Wyndance Way in Uxbridge that sold June 9 for $2,550,000.

As for the least expensive homes sold in Durham last month, there is an eclectic mix, with no north Oshawa bachelor pads changing hands last month. One condo, a one-bedroom apartment at 2550 Simcoe St. N, from the University District made the list, but at #5, selling for $470,000 June 23.

A four-season cottage on Pine Point Lane with ‘indirect’ waterfront (“best views on the street”) and a shared ownership of Pine Point Park near Port Perry sold for $472,000.

The top three contained two condos at Oshawa’s downtown McLaughlin Square building at 55 William Street, including a one-bedroom apartment sold June 30 for $385,000 at #1 and a three-bedroom corner unit condo that sold June 9 for $470,000 at #4.
