78 Wychwood Park was last seen on the market in 2011 asking $2,100,000 for the three bedroom house in the city's Wychwood neighbourhood. The now renovated property has returned with a cosmetic facelift and a higher price tag of $2,995,000. The current owner is Bonnie Brooks, of the Hudson's Bay Company, and her post-renovated abode was previously featured on House and Home Television.
It's now contemporary meets country with new flooring, a refinished staircase and an updated rustic kitchen. The new buyer must love stark white walls, cathedral ceilings and walking up stairs (there's a lot of stairs). There's a walkout to a large backyard oasis and it's conveniently located near Wychwood Barns, the neighbourhood's cultural community hub.
Check out the impressive art collection around the home. There's the moose sculpture in the living room designed by Canadian artist Charles Pachter, amongst other expensive pieces, which sadly aren't included in the asking price. At any rate, the multiple art pieces might be worth more than the house itself.

People who like to entertain. With soaring ceilings and a secluded backyard, this house is great for both intimidate gatherings and large drunken New Year's Eve parties. Additionally, its steps away from a dog park, beach volleyball court and the restaurants on St. Clair West. The private tennis court in Wychwood Park is a nice touch, too.
MOVE ON IF
Gated communities creep you out. Wychwood is a fascinating place, but the former artist colony isn't for everyone. If the X-Files episode Arcadia bugged you out, then stay away from here.
