What we like about this property

It took an extraordinary amount of imagination, inspiration and artistry to transform this old farmhouse into the polished and modern homestead it is today. We love the contrasts of salvaged and vintage elements paired with modern aesthetics and handcrafted details. It’s the perfect synthesis of historic and contemporary design in an idyllic creekside setting.

Description

Rescued from almost complete ruin, this early 19th-century manor home has undergone a remarkable restoration. (A feature in DWELL Magazine delves into the meticulous mechanics of the restoration and the bio of owner and designer Tom Givone). Taking more than four years of careful work and a complete interior demolition, the period character and bones of the original structure remain intact but with a renewed modern spirit. Set at the edge of a stream with a cascading waterfall, the house is located in one of the loveliest areas of the Catskills surrounded by woods.  

A study in contrasts, the structure’s provincial roots and old world charm are now paired with modern industrial materials and finishes such as steel, glass and concrete. The clapboard exteriors and massive crossbeams were preserved while most of the custom wood work and stone were locally sourced. The large kitchen and dining addition mimics the home’s original design, with a wall of skyscraper glass and soaring ceilings. The interiors are minimalist but dramatic in detail with a hand picked collection of vintage and modern industrial furnishings and decor and unique reclaimed items (the 19th century wood and steel bathtub is a real find!). 

With five bedrooms and two and a half baths, the house is spacious and can accomodate up to ten guests with plenty of interior and exterior space for family and friends. Taking full advantage of the beautiful location, the cantilevered porch appears to float on the surface of the water and overlooks all of the high points of the charming country landscape.

The original barn has also been renovated in the same modern/historic architectural style as the farmhouse and the small private river has been enhanced to accommodate  summertime swimming and row boating.

This is a home where opposites attract and coexist beautifully.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, 52″ Vizio Smart TV with cable service and premium movie channels, SONOS sound system in kitchen/dining space for wifi music connectivity, turntable stereo with extensive vinyl record collection and board games in Great Room.  Toiletries provided. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. 

AROUND

The town of Eldred is located in the heart of the Catskills in Sullivan County New York, a charming and rural outpost with lots of history and personality. Just a half hour to the historic and picturesque town of Narrowsburg, you’ll find many chic art galleries, antique shops, as well as some of the best upstate restaurants here. Perched above the Delaware River, the area is an ideal outdoor destination for skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, swimming and kayaking including nearby Skinner Falls. And just a town over, discover Bethel Woods, home of the original Woodstock.

    Perfect team building retreat

    I organized a retreat and strategy session for my team and opted for the peace and beauty of the Catskills. When I found Floating Farmhouse, it was a dream come true—gorgeous design that made our time there extra special, huge kitchen that we used to make delicious artisan pizzas, and finally, great responsive communication from Tom, the owner, who made planning easy. Thank you again Tom, and we will be back!

    Lived up to every expectation!

    Myself and a handful of my friends had one of the best weekends of the year celebrating an early christmas at the floating farmhouse. From making homemade pizzas in the wood burning oven to lounging in front of the fire, we really couldn’t have asked for anything more. The entire vibe of the house is very “make yourself at home” which made it incredibly comfortable and easy to enjoy. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a country escape.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    We were looking for somewhere special to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary… And we couldn’t have found somewhere more special. The Floating Farmhouse was the perfect backdrop for an occasion my entire extended family will remember for a lifetime.

    The house is beautifully designed – when you construct your dream house in your mind, you can find it in reality here. Every single detail in the house has been thought through, and it was incredibly practical and comfortable while simultaneously awe-inducing in its beauty.

    Tom, the owner, was helpful at every stage of contact, and information is clear throughout the house, so when you are there you can just relax and feel that it is your own. In fact that leads to me my only criticism, which was that I had to leave.

    It’s an amazing house. Book it. You’ll leave with an experience you’ll never forget. And a new life goal to reach for.

    Perfect and stunning location for a wedding!

    My husband and I got married at the Floating Farmhouse last weekend and the venue was pure magic. Tom was great to work with and very thorough and available to answer any questions. He clearly has put a lot of hard work and love into the property and every detail shines through. We had our ceremony in the newly renovated barn which was intimate and looked out onto the property. Even though we were going through a cold snap that weekend, the weather didn’t dampen how gorgeous the grounds are. Our guests were stunned by the house and also picturesque setting. We both can’t wait to come back and celebrate a future anniversary here!

    An-out-of-this world experience!

    I have rented houses through home away for over seven years and this is the very first time I give a five star review. The floating Farmhouse is absolutely stunning and the first property I’ve visited that actually looks better in person than in pictures. Being present in this space connects you to all of your senses. It is a true feat that radiates peace, beauty, joy and good taste all around. Not only is the house equip with all you need to want to stay inside forever, but the outdoors is replete with nature, the pond, different stations: hammock, picnic table, gazebo, you name it. Lastly, Tom, the owner, is the most responsive and and caring person one may hope for in a property owner. Simply put, this house is heaven on earth.

    Exceptionally appointed home with beautiful views.

    Tom’s house is a gem. The home is extremely comfortable and well designed, in a gorgeous setting of green meadows and tall pines, with a perfect little pond stocked with catfish.

    I rented this house for a weekend to celebrate a bachelor party weekend with some close friends and family members. This house is stunning – it’s located on a beautiful property with a pond and a small waterfall. The kitchen is the centerpiece of this home – it looks out onto the beautiful property (visible through a glass wall), and is complete with all of the cooking essentials, as well as a pizza oven. We ended up cooking pizzas one night (luckily a friend knew how to toss the pizza dough!).

    I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend with my friends/family, and it was due to the phenomenal hospitality of the owners and their lovely home. They were readily available throughout the weekend in the event that I had any questions/concerns about the house. It truly was a home away from home.

    Definitely plan on coming back, hopefully sooner rather than later!

    Magical & Epic

    The Floating Farmhouse is everything you see pictured and more. There are so many elements of the house that bring a memorable experience from relaxing patio moments with the sound of the creek to the swaying pine trees, the view from the hammock, the conversations and dance parties in the kitchen and the delicious wood oven pizza maker. It’s a special place for groups, occasions, family trips and more. It’s also home that makes you want to come back and enjoy other aspects of the town. This was my first trip and I didn’t leave the house all weekend. We hired a chef one night to cater dinner. It’s was perfect. I will certainly be back and look forward to it. Lastly, Tom is great in communication, support and details. My friends and I are already planning our next trip back to the house.

    LOVED Floating Farmhouse

    We LOVED our stay at the Floating Farmhouse. The home was beautiful – even better than the pictures. The local area was great to explore and we had delicious meals at Laundrette and Henning’s Local. We recommend this to anyone looking for a convenient weekend getaway from NYC – groups large or small. We hope to be back soon.
