THE BASICS

Newcastle in part of the Municipality of Clarington, which is the largest single municipality in Durham Region with a total area of 611.3 square kilometres. While there aren’t and abundance of real estate listings in Newcastle, desirable homes for sale in Newcastle do sell fast.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Feel Like Home

Newcastle is the perfect place to feel like home. Family oriented detached homes are the main offering – with condo options available near the Lake. New subdivisions and charming century homes intermingle in this thriving community. The Port of Newcastle offers fantastic lifestyle living with the Waterfront Trail, Newcastle Marina, and Samuel Wilmont Nature Area just steps away. In addition, Wilmot Creek is a land lease adult lifestyle community situated on two kilometers of lakefront.

Developed And New Homes

Over 1,000 homes have been developed and new homes are being added to this growing community.

GETTING AROUND TOWN

Newcastle is conveniently located along the 401, but also at the Southern interchange of the Highway 115 & 35. Go Transit operates in Newcastle with bus service and a carpool pickup location just west of town on Highway 2. Traffic in Newcastle should never get too bad because it lies east of Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Courtice, and Bowmanville. Since Newcastle is located in the most eastern portion of Durham Region, all of the westbound Toronto traffic won’t come through this area. However, if you’re a commuter to one of those places, you will have to deal with a significant volume of vehicles in the mornings and evenings as you move West along highway 401.

TESTIMONIALS

  • We lost our Mom a year ago and Michael was the reality that sold the house to her. Michael and his Son Paul and Craig are absolutely all genuine and loved helping us through it all, a design team that was able to tackle all our needs, including Painting, Carpet, lighting, switches devices, countertops, door knobs and kitchen cabinet hardware, I swear when they finished I thought it was a brand new Home , they then put it on the Market , the offers just kept coming , they worked with us from many miles apart, and made it possible for us to sign contracts online and they always explained everything and the house sold so fast we couldn’t believe it. These guys are the real thing they are seasoned professionals, they know what it takes and how to do it , and they all have a great smile and that means so much to us very trustworthy and just need to say thank you so much Michael, Paul, Craig Your the best.

  • Michael showed up at my door this past fall in september 2019. He was selling my neighbors home (which he sold in under a month). I was really apprehensive because he had been the third realtor who had come to my home to offer services. At the time I knew I needed to sell but I wasn't ready. But he was patient and very kind about it. 2 months later I took a chance and contacted him and his team. He and Paul (his son) showed up that night (November 4) and instantly felt supported and helped. They helped with the Reno's, negotiating a new dishwasher, moving boxes and removing the junk out of my home. They painted, fixed the walls, cleaned and photographed all under one week. The house was ready by December 16 2019. Under the advice of Michael, We listed my home on january 6 and it was sold by january 20 2020 due to their strong work ethic and ability to showcase a good product. The Baird team goes the bat for you. You will NOT be disappointed and I'm glad God led me to chose them. They really made me feel a part of the Baird team!

  • The only person to trust In Clarington with your home is Paul Baird. The knowledge and deep roots the Baird family has in Clarington make them the number 1 choice. Paul’s calm and educated approach both on a buying and selling standpoint is the best! When it comes to negotiating he’s the best to have in your corner. would give them a 5000-star review if I could!

  • We have bought two new homes from Michael Baird and sold four homes with Michael. We have had very good results with Michael and his team. He has been very helpful with the listing and selling of my mothers’ home, my aunt’s home and my mother and father-in-laws home. We would recommend him and his team to anyone.
