Home of the Week: A unique deconstructivist gem in North York

A blue mansion with serious curve appeal for $2.95 million

Back in the early ’90s, real estate agent Nick Bernhard decided to do something a little bit different with his Bond Avenue property in the neighbourhood of Don Mills near Leslie and Lawrence.

He engaged architect Zak Ghanim and tasked him with creating something non-traditional and thoroughly modern for the two lots.

In 1996, he set to work building two whimsical, blue properties on the site. And the bright, angular and modern homes continue to turn heads to this day.

The unique and captivating home at 1 Bond Ave. has just hit the market priced at $2.95 million.

The 2,700-square-foot deconstructivist home features an open concept punctuated by a grand atrium in the middle of the main floor with 20-foot ceilings that allow for the flow of the space to reach the second level. There is also a four-sided fireplace on the first floor.
