About 1 Marcel 4 Road

Floating Farmhouse. This c1820 4BD 3BA home, featured in Dwell & Architectural Digest, extends over 3,400 square feet on 8.7 idyllic acres of open fields & forest in picturesque Sullivan County. Perched at the edge of a Catskills swimming creek and waterfall cascading over a restored ancient stone dam, the home and its sprawling cantilevered covered porch "float'' above the surface of the water; hence the iconic home's name. Following a four-year design/rebuild process by acclaimed architect Tom Givone, Floating Farmhouse has been restored to its period grandeur while melding modernist architecture. Dwell Magazine calls it "a living laboratory for how to bring the vernacular past into the present.'' The kitchen includes vaulted ceilings & hand-hewn beams, radiant concrete floors & a soaring curtain wall of glass & steel most commonly found in skyscrapers. The wall's steel beams were bathed in acid to achieve their uniquely rich patina, as was the floor-to-ceiling steel tower opposite with built-inwood burning pizza oven. Finished with local bluestone countertops & custom cabinetry, the cathedral-like space was built for entertaining while taking in views of the winding waterfront and MacBarn, an 1800's structure reimagined with panels of anodized aluminum (most commonly used for MacBooks). The barn features a retractable door, heating system & chandeliers, and a new septic system for future expansion. Off the kitchen is the 1000sf Great Room with oversized wood burning fireplace, original wide plank floors, wainscoting milled from trees on the property & banks of original floor to ceiling windows. Above this is the lightfilled primary suite with a steel-backed woodburning fireplace. A preserved section of the original 1800's cedar shake roof has been unearthed and integrated into the vaulted ceiling's design. In the primary bath you'll find jack and jill sinks, a freestanding soaking tub and walk-in rain shower. The northern wing of the house features three more bedrooms and an office, a half bath downstairs & full bath upstairs with stainless steel-wrapped antique copper soaking tub, a centuries-old marble sink discovered in Rome & corner shower with minimalist concrete wall finishes. Archaic and modern are perfectly juxtaposed throughout, enhancing the beauty of each by virtue of contrast with the other. Floating Farmhouse operates as a well established luxury vacation rental & photoshoot location providing substantial annual revenue. 2h to NYC.
