Situated nonchalantly in Lawrence Park South, 108 Stratford Cres. is unapologetically bespoke. From the concrete lap pool in the front yard to the hand-laid, diamond-shaped zinc shingles to the softly curved roof, it’s clear that the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom property was designed to be remarkable. Known as the famous Bézier Curve House, the buyers of this architectural phenomenon will also be getting a little slice of Toronto history.

The home was conceptualized by Farhad Kazmian, a custom home builder and the owner of Abond Homes. His plans for the home were twofold – he wanted to create a home for his family that could also serve as an inspiring showcase for his business. To help him flesh out the design plans, Kazmian brought on architect, interior designer and founder of Toronto design firm Bortolotto Design, Tania Bortolotto. Together, they created a 5,300-square-foot showstopper, now known as the Bézier Curve House.

Less than two years after it was built, the Bézier Curve House has hit the market, listed at $12.895 million. It’s ultra-modern, spacious, a short drive from the downtown core and close to top-rated public and private schools – perfect for a family and then some!
