Hola Hart Beat! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. Oh were you stressing in the city? Don’t worry, I was relaxing in my beautifully renovated farmhouse Upstate that features not only a fireplace in the bedroom (my dream) but, a porch floating over the creek next door. Just kidding. But really, isn’t this the perfect house? Designed by Givone Home, this “floating farmhouse” just looks like the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Even the interiors are gorgeous, a large round glass dining table really sets off the vibe. As Liz Lemon states, “This is MY house.” Why don’t we take a tour this lazy Sunday morning (and try to forget what might happen after a massive rain storm when the creek creeps up to the land…)
Sited at the edge of a pristine creek, with a waterfall cascading over an ancient dam of hand-laid stone, the Floating Farmhouse was sinking shop when first discovered. After a design and rebuild process spanning four years, the 1820 manor home is now a study in contrasts: fully restored to its period grandeur while featuring purely modernist elements, including a curtain wall of skyscraper glass in the kitchen, polished concrete and steel finishes, minimalist interiors, and a cantilevered porch “floating” on the surface of the water.
