The place

A two-storey early-’90s time capsule on the southeastern shore of Georgian Bay, a two-hour drive north of Toronto.

The history

This property was built in 1994 and nicknamed “Bleu” for its funky use of colour. In 2008, the current owners bought it as a vacation spot, adding a new roof and geothermal heating over the next decade. They now want to relocate closer to family and have put their former getaway on the market.

The tour

Pulling up to the house reveals the façade, made mostly of steel, wood and blue-tinted glass.
