This ‘Floating Farmhouse’ is a Modern Country Getaway

Usually when you think of a farmhouse, you think of a home filled with wood accents and shabby-chic furniture. This breathtaking home, nicknamed the “floating farmhouse,” puts a new spin on country getaways.

Located near Narrowsburg, N.Y., this incredible abode has been standing since 1820. According to Country Living, the building was once on the verge of collapse before architectural designer Tom Givone stepped in and gave it a brand new look.

Although it may seem like an ordinary farmhouse on the exterior, the inside of the home is filled with a modern and elegant design style.

Huge wooden beams give warmth to the space and help break up the bright white color that’s found on all the walls and cabinetry.

So why is it nicknamed the “floating farmhouse?” It earned the title thanks to its cantilevered porch, which looks as though it’s floating atop the adjacent pond.
