Community of Clarkson
Buying or Selling a Home in the Community of Clarkson
Clarkson is a community located in the south west corner of Mississauga and borders Oakville to the west and Lorne Park to the east. It is an interesting neighbourhood because Clarkson real estate offers a great variety of price points. From Clarkson townhouses all the way up to million dollar detached designer homes. Clarkson also has its own village area with entertainment and retail spaces similar to Port Credit. This variety of affordable housing and plenty of desirable lots of land combined with an excellent location close to transportation hubs makes Clarkson real estate extremely inviting and an excellent option. Portions of Clarkson overlap Lorne Park and homes within these regions tend to fit into both neighbourhoods.
Ok, so one thing to note about the school info above. There’s only a very small part of Clarkson that gets the best of both worlds. The area most known as Clarkson today is west of Southdown and that’s where you will find the most affordable housing. It’s very similar to that of Lakeview where much older homes (think just post-WWII) dominate the landscape. That includes all sorts of backsplits, sidesplits, bungalows etc. Give up a garage and you can find something pretty affordable.
Clarkson does hold one thing over its more affluent brother – better transportation options and access. With a GO station right next door and easy access to Lakeshore and the QEW, Clarkson is a much better option for those who rely mainly on transporation.
