Set on nearly nine verdant acres in Sullivan County, this unique circa 1820 farmhouse incorporates its history with elements of modern design so beautifully that it has been featured in Architectural Digest and Dwell magazine, the latter of which called it “a living laboratory for how to bring the vernacular past into the present.” Known as Floating Farmhouse, the 3,400-square-foot Catskills home and barn sit at the edge of a swimming creek with a waterfall. Among its star features is a covered porch that appears to hover above the water. Asking $2,875,000, the home is available for the first time since a four-year rebuilding process by acclaimed designer Tom Givone created its current stunning form.
