No. 13: Eringate-Centennial-West Deane

Average sale price: $765,733

This Etobicoke pocket is a wonderland for athletic types. Centennial Park is one of the city’s largest green spaces, with a ski hill, a golf course and the Etobicoke Olympium, a multi-use sports facility that was revamped as a training centre for the Pan Am Games. Nearby Silverthorn ­Collegiate Institute has a special program for high-performance student athletes, which allows kids to earn school credit while they train. The population is catching up to the amenities as many boomers sell their houses and young working families move in: the most affordable homes are handsome three-bedroom bungalows from the 1960s, some of which sell for $700,000. Transit options are meagre—this is Ford country, after all—but the area is dreamy for drivers and frequent fliers, with ready access to the 427 and Pearson.
