Rathwood is a lovely charming mature area in the central most eastern area of Mississauga. It has a lovely blend of community, business, accessibility and middle-of-the-line affordability, making it a location charm.
Rathwood Mississauga is located in east Mississauga north of Applewood, south of Hurontario, east of Square One and west of the Etobicoke border.
Rathwood Real Estate
Rathwood Mississauga homes began construction in the 60s and 70s. Bungalows and 2-story detached homes are the most common, often they have access to separate entrances for basement apartments and the layout allows for duplex-style homes. It is the upper middle budget compared to the rest of Mississauga and in saying that, could be a good target for a middle-income family that wants/needs to be as close to Toronto or Etobicoke as possible.
Rathwood Mississauga homes for sale have a more mature, established neighbourhood with many long-time residents. There is a strong Eastern and Western European community similar to what you would find in Etobicoke. As a second-time buyer neighbourhood, the average family age tends to skew higher.
Rathwood was originally an agricultural centre, served for farms and such in the mid-1800s. From the 1950s that all changed as parks, homes, and commercial centers were built, the community came upon itself. It is a wonderful mature area with a bit of everything, and many areas of low, mid and high-density homes.
Today it shares similarities with Applewood, often indistinguishable based on their amenities. It’s like they are holding arms the whole time. Parks, stores, malls, and community centers are near common areas which makes both neighbourhoods convenient and sought after to live as well as enjoy. The only difference is that Rathwood is a little cheaper and more affordable, even though they have some great homes making it a great move-up to your family home neighbourhood option as well.
