Lakeview is a community that resides in the southeast corner of Mississauga and is bordered by Dixie, Mineola, and Port Credit. Similar to many other communities in Mississauga the history of Lakeview is rich dating back to 1800s.  It is common in Lakeview to see homes being renovated to build custom homes rather than maintaining the previous home structure. What is beneficial to the area is its lake front properties, as well as its vast parks and golf course all of which can only add to Lakeview communities high demand for development and modernization of the area by homebuyers and investors. 

The area at one time was home to soldiers during World War II, and therefore it is common to find pre war homes, these homes are affordable and located primarily along Atwater Ave.  These homes are smaller in size and lots, but with close proximity to neighbours create a sense of close-knit community.  Some sections of Lakeview are structured after the 1950’s suburban expansion after the war, these homes are similar to the pre war homes in that they are not large in size or lots. 

With that said they differ from the average home because they are on average around one and a half stories unlike that of the pre war homes or the 2 story detached homes.  There are larger detached homes, these are spaced out between the older homes in the area, they are modern designs and large in size.  Developers love this area because they are remaking Lakeview to urbanize it as well as modernize it.  Lakeview is a wonderful area for those seeking to grow their family, downsize or for couples seeking a calm and quiet community close to the water.
