Waterfront Homes For Sale In The Durham Region

Durham Region waterfront homes truly offer an experience you won’t find anywhere else. Imagine all of the trips you’ve taken down to the cottage at the lake on weekends or in the summer with family and friends and all of the lake and river activities you got up to. A waterfront home in the Durham Region is like a permanent vacation. 

Often sitting on acres of land, some of the most desirable properties in the Durham Region are those right on the shoreline of Lake Ontario. These homes offer not only stunning views, but that highly sought-after privacy. These properties, of course, have fewer neighbours, and are typically located on quieter streets with limited lanes and access. You can’t go wrong with one of these unbelievable homes. 

Depending on the property, waterfront homes for sale in the Durham Region generally start over that million dollar mark, though these homes can sell for quite above that depending on the property size and upgrades. As a benchmark, luxury waterfront homes provide the buyer with ample square footage, usually between the 2,500 and 5,000 range.

Cottage style waterfront homes for sale in the Durham Region truly make you feel as though you’re living in dreamy vacation bliss with warm wood tones and old style fireplaces perfect for sitting around with a cup of hot chocolate with family and friends. 

Upwards of three car garages and long, winding driveways allow for guests that will want to come see your new Durham Region waterfront home in all seasons. New construction homes in some of the easternmost Durham Region communities have those luxury features already as base features, including stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, and spacious kitchen/dining areas for entertaining. 

Beautiful trees surround your waterfront home property, adding to the outdoor lover’s allure of the entire area. Buyers can also purchase acres of vacant land to build their own custom Durham Region waterfront home, to the smallest attention to detail.
