Nestled in the heart of Windsor’s Old Walkerville neighbourhood, Border City Living has temporarily converted a historic Devonshire Road home into an immersive solo exhibition of Bob Voyvodic’s stunning artwork. This unique event, photographed here by Emma Davidson, offers art enthusiasts and prospective homeowners an extraordinary opportunity to explore a harmonious blend of aesthetics within the charming locale.
Just in time for Windsor’s signature art event, Art in the Park, the architectural beauty of this highly sought-after property serves as a striking backdrop for the exhibition, seamlessly merging a collection of Voyvodic’s vibrant artwork with the historic charm of this unique property. Bob Voyvodic, a Walkerville native, former restaurateur and house painter extraordinaire, is now a full-time artist working out of his home studio just a few short blocks from Devonshire Rd. Formally trained in fine art at the University of Windsor, his colourful work continues to evolve, with various options for different interior settings appealing to many design tastes.
Many of his acrylic-on-panel paintings come in a 2’X2′ square format in singles, doubles, triples and quads. This allows for flexibility in how they can be arranged on any wall. Visit Border City Living for an immersive BCL “Show/House” experience at 618 Devonshire Rd. during Art in the Park weekend, where art and real estate unite.
The Queen Anne-style homes on the 600 block of Devonshire Rd. were built by architects Mason & Rice in the 1890s and, as such, are some of the most desirable historic properties in Windsor. This semi-detached 2-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom dwelling was once home to some of Windsor’s distinguished public figures, such as James W.R. Adams, the town planner who lived there until 1929.
This unique property combines the allure of a bygone era with the comfort of contemporary living. Some extensive renovations include a glassed-in staircase, stone countertops, a soaker tub with an oversized shower, modernized plumbing and electrical, a two-car heated garage with loft, large addition, new windows and insulation.
The architecture in Walkerville showcases the grandeur and elegance of the past. The neighbourhood nurtured a vibrant arts and entertainment scene, with theatres, clubs, and cultural events taking center stage. Today, Walkerville continues to thrive as a cultural destination, featuring art galleries, boutique shops, and a variety of dining options.
