Rodd Avenue, Pickering

A custom-built waterfront home in Pickering with lake views and access to a secluded beach topped the list of the most expensive homes sold in Durham Region last month, with the 4,700 sq. ft., 4-bdrm estate selling for $3.6 million.

The Rodd Avenue house boasts breathtaking views and blend of modern design and classic elements that makes it as much a work of art as it is a functional home. Features include 9-11 ft ceilings throughout, multiple decks, top-of-the-line marble, stone and quartz surfaces and a lower level that functions as a separate apartment with its own private entrance and patio.

Just two homes (both in Halton Region) in the Zoocasa Realty sales area sold for a higher price in May: a home in the Eastlake community ($3.998 million) and one in Burlington ($3.7 million).
