The Eringate neighbourhood is located just south of Toronto Pearson Airport and is bounded by Eglinton Avenue to the north, Renforth to the west , Hwy 427 to the East, and Rathburn Road to the south. It is a part of a community which includes Centennial Park to the west and West Dean to the east.
Eringate was a relatively unknown commodity in the Toronto real estate market until 2009 when property values in the this family oriented area recorded the highest increases in Canada. Proximity to the airport once seen to be a detriment, is now embraced by homeowners who enjoy the quality of life and ease of access to exceptional recreation areas, and quick access to Hwy's 401 and 427 and of course Toronto Pearson Airport. Many homes in the area feature secondary suites, making this area a good choice for first time buyers.
The majority of homes in Eringate are ranch bungalows and a few two storey homes built in the 1960 when the area was known as Vallengrove Park. The homes featured 50' lots and private drives and sold for about $17,000. The average price of a bungalow in Eringate in 2012 was $513,000 and a 2 storey home was $580,000. In 2005, a freehold town home complex was built on the site of the Eringate Plaza and units currently sell in the low $500's. Many of the smaller homes in the area are being substantially renovated or torn down to build larger homes. A rebuild in this area could sell in the $800,000 range.
There is an outdoor pool, and ball diamonds in Eringate Park on Wellesworth, but with Centennial Park literally across the street, there is no shortage of activities for both the young and old. From skiing to an Olympic sized swimming pool, to football stadium, ball diamonds, golf, go carts and picnic areas, Centennial Park is a fabulous total year round recreational area.
