Wychwood Park

Wychwood Park is a wonderful neighbourhood enclave in central Toronto of just 60 houses arranged along a road that meanders through 300 year old trees and encircles a central park, pond, and tennis courts. It is a private community that was founded as an artists compound in the late 18th century although few artists could afford it now as it is one of Toronto's most exclusive areas. Most of the homes are in the Arts and Crafts style as is this one which was built in 1911 by the architects Sproatt and Rolph. It is a great place to stroll through.

I used to live near here and loved to walk through and admire the houses and gardens and dream that one day I might be on the "right side of the tracks"!
