Mineola West Luxury Homes
the most expensive homes in Mississauga – part 6
Where is Mineola Located?
The Mineola area of Port Credit, Mississauga, or more specifically Mineola West, is a small, exclusive enclave of expensive homes in the south-central part of Toronto’s western suburb.
Nestled just off of Hurontario Street, south of the QEW highway, and on the northern fringes of Port Credit, Mineola was originally a location of bucolic cottages, There is an extensive tree canopy here that gives Mineola West a parklike appearance.
Mineola has ranch bungalows and cottages that were originally built here on massive, forested lots, with long, winding driveways. These types of homes offer 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.

What’s it Like Living Here?
West Mineola is a discreet place, without large signs or markings, and it is easy to miss unless you know the directions.
As you exit west off Hurontario Street onto Mineola Road, there is an immediate transformation from the bustle of Mississauga’s main thoroughfare, to a secluded setting of tall trees, narrow streets, and incredible properties.
As you proceed along Mineola Road W., the trees get taller, the houses get bigger, until you reach the end of the road – the Credit River, where there are a few amazing properties facing directly onto the river.
Streets in West Mineola
Streets in Mineola West include Kenollie Ave., Indian Valley Trail, Pinetree Way, Woodland Ave., Veronica Drive, Inglewood Drive, and Stavebank Rd. N.
Almost all these streets feature the high tree canopy that is the trademark of Mineola West. and it can truly be said, driving or walking them often feels like you have entered an undisturbed Ontario forest.
The tall trees accent impressively landscaped properties, on massive lots. Here you find a mix of the original bungalows and cottages, complemented by more recent, estate type properties.
As with several other luxury neighbourhoods in Mississauga, local residents often refer to their neighbourhood as “Muskoka in the City“, and it is not hard to see why (‘Muskoka‘ is a renowned parkland area of lakes and forests, situated some distance north of Toronto, and ‘Honey Harbour’ is a prime location within Muskoka).
