A labor of love from a self-taught architectural designer, this Floating Farmhouse is a far cry from the neon blue Catskill farmhouse it once was. The home integrates its addition into the existing structure with the same siding and roofing yet allows it to stand apart with 22-foot-tall glass, reclaimed beams, and a poured concrete wood-burning oven that's part of a weathered Cor-Ten fireplace stack. Reclaimed material is also found throughout the rest of the home, including in the bathrooms, main bedroom, and on the 12' by 50' covered side porch that cantilevers over the nearby stream, thus giving the home its name. After nearly a decade as a short-term rental, the property is now up for sale.
