Sheridan is an elegant and desirable area in west Mississauga, just south of Dundas St W and spanning from Winston Churchill Blvd to the Credit River. This an excellent suburban village, and is always in high demand with families. The 3 distinct sub-areas in Sheridan are Sheridan Homelands, Sherwood Forest and the Mississauga Road Corridor south to the QEW. The age of the areas range greatly, but the vast majority of homes were built from the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Most development now consists of newer custom home infills and re-builds.
Many people do not know that Sheridan has existed since 1857, as tiny hamlet which included its own post office and church – which also served as a school and community hall. Though the population never grew past 100, it slowly lost population over time and fell into the fold of Mississauga when it formed as a city.

Sheridan consists of 3 distinct communities, built in different decades, with different classes in mind. Today, all areas command a high price, although some areas are still more affordable relative to other areas of the city. Sheridan Homelands was designed to be a modest family neighbourhood with a variety of semi-detached and small detached homes. Sherwood Forest is a planned suburb that was designed for the executive family, with wide lots and charming street names. Where Sherwood Forest offer privacy, the Mississauga Road corridor is for those who want the house and the show, being side by side with some of the most expensive Real Estate not just in Mississauga, but in the west GTA.
Sheridan Homelands is the most family-friendly areas, with the most affordable prices compared to Sherwood Forest or Mississauga Rd. You will see a lot of young families intermixed with long time residents who have lived in their homes for 30+ years. In Sherwood Forest and Mississauga Road, your neighbours are more likely to be older families and empty nesters; upper-income families who want the prestige home.
Sheridan has every type of home, from condo apartment to custom and executive homes.
Sheridan Homelands is dominated by traditional 2 storey homes and back-splits that are in the 40 year range and older. Sherwood Forest is an elegant and stately neighbourhood with the two-storey, wide lot, all brick homes built mostly in the 1980’s. Mississauga Road has and always will be one of the most elegant and expensive areas in Mississauga, with large wide lots, executive and custom homes, as well as older builder style homes that are ready for renovation. This is a fun street to drive along if you want to get a sense of everything Mississauga has to offer.
