The quiet streets between St. Clair Street Avenue and Davenport Road are home to prestigious pockets of Bracondale/Wychwood/Hillcrest real estate.
This established community is popular with families because of the community’s character-rich heritage homes and reputable schools.
THE REAL ESTATE
Wychwood real estate consists of many heritage homes in a private pocket of the neighbourhood. Prestigious homes line the streets, some holding true to their original character, others remodelled with modern designs. Hillcrest real estate is highly sought-after for its ideal location on top of the Davenport escarpment, which offers priceless views of the city skyline. There are also newly built condo developments in the area, a contemporary option for those looking for plenty of amenities all under one roof.
WHERE TO RELAX
If you’re looking to spend some time outdoors, you have a couple of places to explore. Hillcrest Park is a smaller park with plenty to do as its home to tennis courts, a playground, a wading pool, and an open area for any other recreational pass times. Outside of Artscape Wychwood Barns is Wychwood Park, which has a playground, water fountains, a dog park, and a picnic area.
WHERE TO EAT
A local favourite in this neighbourhood is The Stockyards on St.Clair Avenue West. This family-friendly restaurant kicks traditional BBQ up a notch while sticking to traditional smoking and curing methods. From savoury chicken and waffles to deep friend poached eggs, this comfort food will have you back again before you know it.
WHERE TO SHOP
Artscape Wychwood Barns brings this neighbourhood together as a community hub that hosts events and activities throughout the year. One of the most popular being the Green Barn Farmer’s Market that’s held every Saturday, where you can grab local produce and handcrafted products. But Wychwood Barns is much more than that; this former streetcar repair facility is also an event venue, community-run gallery, an artist live/work space, community centre, and arts market. There’s also a children’s park, off-leash area for dogs, and picnic area for the entire family to enjoy.
