Average Home Price: $740,000. Pickering is a suburb directly to the east of Toronto which borders Rouge National Urban Park and Ajax to the east. Like many of the cities beside Toronto it stretches north from the shores of Lake Ontario towards the farmland and green space of the Oak Ridges Moraine. This city is a popular destination for young families looking for recently built, detached homes with lots of space to live and grow. Residential lots tend to be large and built on relatively wide streets with driveways and garages.
GETTING AROUND TOWN
Commuting from Pickering to a variety of locations is very straightforward given the town’s excellent access to Highway 401 and 407 ETR. People who work in downtown Toronto can be at work in under 40 minutes by car. It is a short train ride from the Pickering GO Station to Union Station. Traveling to the other eastern suburbs of Toronto is easier given that commuters will be going against the flow of traffic. From the GO Station in Pickering to stations in Ajax, Whitby, or Oshawa, it is under a 25 minute ride. Each of these locations has sizeable parking lots which commuters often use for an entire day when traveling to other cities.
The Baird Team recommends the Pickering Town Centre as a great destination shopping centre with a variety of stores for the whole family. For a great meal and an excellent patio with a view of Frenchman’s Bay, check our PORT. It’s recognized as the best restaurant experience in the East GTA with a strong foundation rooted in the “scratch cooking” that’s a strong part of the North American culinary explosion of the past decade. While down in Frenchman’s Bay, the local Marina has emerged as a leader in revitalizing the waterfront for the benefit of the larger community, and provides a sense of tranquility in an otherwise busy suburb. Lastly, for an experience inspired by the vibrancy and traditions of Mexico, Chúuk is certainly worth visiting.
