House of the week: 82 Wychwood Park
Wychwood Park is unlike any other hidden street in the city. What began as an artists colony in the early 1900s, the enclave near Bathurst St. and Davenport Rd. is home to 60 households inside the private gated community.
The impressive eight bedroom at number 82 is similar to the other sprawling Arts and Crafts homes that line the street. The oval main foyer is flanked by columns, high ceilings and a spiralling wood staircase. The solarium in the back living area reveals a colourful stained glass ceiling.
The unique property boasts plenty of notable features: a fireplace in almost every room, a home movie theatre, inground swimming pool and a private elevator in case you can't make it to the eighth bathroom. So what's the asking price? 82 Wychwood Park is listed for $8,980,000.
Living inside your own private villa. A home in Wychwood Park is like owning your own urban cottage -- an idyllic backdrop overlooking trees, a swimming pool and tennis court. One less thing to check off that bucket list.
MOVE ON IF
You love a modern kitchen. Built circa 1915, the property could use a facelift including much-needed renos to the dated bedrooms, washrooms and kitchen -- ok, all the rooms.
