Best Neighborhoods in Mississauga
Have you ever wondered what are the most expensive neighborhoods in Mississauga, Ontario? Well here they are in all their glory.
Mississauga has grown from a sleepy collection of small towns to a vibrant community of nearly 750,000 people. It’s a large city in itself and yet is also Toronto’s western suburb.
Even though the city is usually viewed as a middle class or upper middle class area, there are also many pockets of extremely high end homes that are sprinkled throughout the city.
Here you can find some of the best luxury real estate for sale in the Greater Toronto Area.
Some of these highly sought after areas of Mississauga feature amazing multi million dollar homes for sale. Many with up to 10,000 square feet and more.
There are a lot of homes here that are situated in park-like settings with enormous lots featuring swimming pools and tennis courts.
Here is a short summary of some of these luxury homes in Mississauga, and where you can find them.
Credit Mills is an area of large luxury homes located off of Mississauga Road, north of Eglinton Avenue, bounded by Erin Mills Parkway on the west, and the Streetsville old town limit on the north.
This neighborhood is a bit different from the others on this list, in that it was built in the fairly recent past, during the 1990’s.
Credit Mills features large, modern, luxury homes of 3000, 4000, and even 5000 square feet, on lots which are slightly smaller than some of the other neighborhoods in this survey – easier to maintain!
Many of these fine homes are on court locations. They have double or triple car garages, and are filled with the best and most expensive upgrades.
In addition, the area of Credit Mills is very close to the shops of Streetsville, Erin Mills Town Centre, and the Streetsville GO Station.
The primary road running through Credit Mills is Erin Centre Boulevard. Check out our feature page on Credit Mills homes.
Credit Pointe is another of Mississauga’s best neighborhoods. It is a circular-shaped pocket of homes running off of Eglinton Avenue West, with the Credit River on its western edge.
This is a relatively small area that features some regular homes within its boundaries, but as you go towards its southern tip, there are several streets with very expensive, high end properties.
Credit Pointe is centrally located in Mississauga, and has great access to both the GO Train and Highway 403. Check out our feature page on Credit Pointe homes.
