the most expensive homes in Mississauga - part 3
Gordon Woods Location
Gordon Woods is a small, exclusive pocket of very expensive homes in Mississauga, nestled just off of Hurontario Street, north of the QEW highway. Originally built for the doctors working at what is now Trillium Hospital, Gordon Woods has perhaps the most breathtaking, extensive tree canopy in all of Mississauga, and perhaps in all of the Greater Toronto Area. Ranch bungalows were originally built on massive, forested lots, with long, winding driveways offering the ultimate in privacy and seclusion. Today these lots are highly sought after, and new estate homes of palatial proportions are replacing many of the original houses.

Gordon Woods has only a handful of streets, and is easy to miss unless you know where you are going. Exiting west off Hurontario on Harborn Road, there is an immediate transformation from the bustle of downtown Mississauga, to a tranquil setting of tall trees, narrow streets, and magnificent properties.

Streets in Gordon Woods
Streets in Gordon Woods include Harborn Road, Harborn Trail, Gordon Drive, Autumn Breeze Drive, Parker Drive, Grange Drive, and Isabella Avenue. Several of the north-south streets are blocked midway, providing an additional barrier to traffic. The forest canopy in Gordon Woods often covers the entire road, and it seems just unbelievable that you are in the heart of Mississauga. Locals often refer to their neighbourhood as "Muskoka in the City", and it is easy to see why ('Muskoka' is a renowned parkland area of forests and lakes, situated north of Toronto).
