The Carlisle and Corktown neighbourhoods of Hamilton figured prominently in the most expensive and least expensive homes sold in the Steel City in November, with the upscale Carlisle community near the Burlington border taking the four of the five most expensive properties, while Corktown in downtown secured spots on both lists.

Top of the list, supplied by the Zoocasa real estate brokerage, was a 4,200 sq. ft. country estate on more than three acres at 1447 Progreston Road that sold November 12 for $3.45 million.

The home boasts impeccable lawns and landscaping and a beautiful mahogany door and foyer, hickory hardwood floors and a chef-inspired kitchen with quartz counters and a great room that overlooks the back yard.

The custom bungaloft has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, parking for 14 and a finished basement with a wood fireplace and exercise area. Outside, the house sits in a Muskoka-like setting with walking trails and a western exposure.

Number two is nearby 42 Parkshore Place, which has two bedrooms, four bathrooms and sold November 26 for $1.685 million. The sprawling bungalow features a French country-style kitchen with a breakfast bar, a professionally finished basement with a British pub vibe with a wet bar and pool table and beautifully landscaped grounds.

At #3 is another Carlisle property, this one a three-bedroom, four-bathroom, 2,500 sq. ft. home at 21 Meander Close that sold November 13 for $1.485 million. Fourth on the list is again in Carlisle; a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home at 184 Carlisle Road that sold November 14 for $1.28 million.

The home backs onto farm fields and boasts excellent curb appeal with new hardscaping, steps and driveway; hardwood and ceramic floors throughout; a new kitchen; and an inground pool and expansive deck.

11 Aberdeen Avenue, Corktown

A central Hamilton location in Corktown at 11 Aberdeen Road broke the Carlisle trend, with the four-bedroom home with nearly 5,000 sq. ft. of living space selling November 26 for $1.29 million.

The custom dream home features a stone exterior with a towering peak above the garage and Cape Cod-style dormers; a main room with floor-to-ceiling fireplace and a spa room with a seven-person hot tub; and an open concept kitchen.

The three least expensive homes sold in Hamilton last month were among the cheapest sold in all of Ontario in November, including a one-bedroom condo at 1950 Main St. W in the Ainslie Wood West neighbourhood that sold for $310,000 November 27 and two Corktown one-bedroom condos.

175 Hunter St. E, Corktown

An apartment at 175 Hunter St. E in Corktown sold for $370,000 November 14, while one at 36 James St. S sold for just $330,000 in November as well.

Also on the list is a two-bedroom condo at 135 James St. S – also in Corktown – that was released November 9 for $410,000; a three-bedroom condo at 75 Glenburn Court in Stoney Creek that sold November 11 for $420,000 and one-bedroom semi-detached house in the Beasley neighbourhood in central Hamilton that sold November 15 for $430,000.

The Beasley home, located at 126 Robert Street, just underwent a transformation that gave it a little classic charm and some urban luxury with its open concept interior and features a nicely landscaped back yard with a deck.
