What We

There’s not much to not like about Wychwood/Hillcrest. The homes are charming, the streets are tree-lined, the landscape is lush with greenery and did we mention there is a year-round farmers market at Artscape Wychwood Barns? It also serves as a community cultural hub that is a live/work space for artists, seasonal festivals, a greenhouse, and a community-run gallery.

What We Don't

Wychwood Park is a wealthier area of Toronto and the residents pay a special tax for living in this exclusive community as well as fees to keep the community clean and safe.

Tucked away in a private ravine right at the top of Davenport Ridge lies an exclusive gated community of homes known as Wychwood Park. In 1985 the neighbourhood received designation as an Ontario Heritage Conservation District with many homes in the area listed as heritage properties. Reason for the designation can be seen in the stunning architecture, with homes built by famed English Arts and Craft House architects like Eden Smith. With this exclusivity and historical significance however comes a steep price tag, with homes valued in the millions.
