Average Home Price: $820,000. Uxbridge is a township and suburban community in Durham Region that is known for picturesque farms and rolling hills. It is a great place to live for people who work in surrounding cities like Toronto, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, or Markham, but want a quieter lifestyle and enjoy the open feeling of the countryside. Living in Uxbridge is also a great option for people who travel to cottages and to ski areas on the weekend because it reduces driving time substantially. Uxbridge covers approximately 420 square kilometres and is bounded by the York-Durham Line to the west, Ravenshoe Road to the north, Lakeridge Road to the east, and Webb Road to the south. The densest area is centred around Brock Street East and Concession Road 7 and the majority of the township’s population reside in several small neighbourhoods here.
GETTING AROUND TOWN
Driving to the suburbs of Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, and Oshawa will take approximately 30-40 minutes. For workers going to Newmarket, Aurora, and Richmond Hill, there are many small highways to take, including Bloomington Road and Elgin Mills Road East. It should take between 30 and 40 minute by car to commute to these areas, but snow can play a factor in the winter causing major slowdowns. Despite having Durham Region Transit having bus service in the area, commuting by public transit is very difficult and will take more than an hour to get to any dense urban area.
