WYCHWOOD PARK was founded as a private artists colony by painter Marmaduke Matthews<Marmaduke Matthews’ ‘Autumn Still Life/1888′ above> and businessman Alexander Jardin. It exists intact to this day.Mr. Matthews’ home, Wychwood, #6 <above>, still stands, beside another 60 houses built around a small pond, which is actually a dammed up Taddle Creek – http://www.lostrivers.caWYCHWOOD PARK is our only neighbourhood with a warning sign for quicksand and one of the few still lit by TORONTO’S old streetlamps. Some of the houses have spectacular downtown views. The village combines rusticity and exclusivity; house prices here run into the millions. Adjacent are the Wychwood Car Barns and artist studios. Great place for a long walk.
