The open living and dining room are flush with natural light, thanks to the large windows. The updated kitchen is equally as sunny. Quartz counters, stainless-steel appliances and hood fan make this space modern and functional. A large island is a great place to help kids with homework while you prepare dinner, or to entertain friends while whipping up a feast.
Upstairs, you’ll find a bright and cheery primary bedroom, which is connected to a luxe main bathroom. There are two entrances to this bathroom, perfect for busy families.

Outdoor space at home is a must these days, and 227 Erskine Avenue has a wonderful backyard that is private, lush and perfect for entertaining. There is even built-in seating to accommodate your friends and family.
Life is Good in a Connected Community
The fabric of the Sherwood Park neighbourhood is no doubt its residents who help to foster this deep sense of community. Think community events like BBQs, movie nights etc. where you can meet and mingle with your neighbours.

Errands can be done in a flash with Loblaws, Walmart, SummerHill Market, Shoppers Drug Mart and the LCBO super close by. There are family-friendly shops a stroll away as well, like Mastermind Toys and Mabel’s Fables Children’s Bookstore.
Pick up a coffee and some Korean-style macarons to nosh on at The Social Blend. Everybody needs a go-to brunch spot. Yours would be the Homeway, right down the road from home. Hit the patio at the Granite Brewery and savour some craft beer. Dine on comfort food in style at Uncle Betty’s Diner. Not sure what you are in the mood for tonight? Wander down to nearby Yonge St. and choose from numerous eateries.
There is nothing better than having great greenspace near home, and 227 Erskine is right near popular Sherwood Park. This is easily one of Toronto’s best urban parks, spread out over 40 acres. There are boardwalk trails perfect for nature walks. There is also a playground, picnic areas, wading pools and a large off-leash area for your furry friends.
Another peaceful and beautiful area for a stroll is nearby Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

It has a wide collection of trees, making it one of the more diverse arboretums in North America.
