Beautiful View The Shabby Chic Farmhouse That Floats on The Water

A farmhouse from the 19th century was recently renovated and transformed into a comfortable living space. The most impressive feature? Its porch actually floats on water. Theaptly named Floating Farmhouse is located inEldred, New York, resonates with modernity while still retaining its down-home feel.Givonehome, the design studio that restored the farmhouse, wanted to keep some of the space's authentic details. When the run-down house was bought, no one believed it still had any potential. But after a design and rebuild process spanning four years, the 1820 manor home is now a study in contrasts: fully restored to its period grandeur while featuring purely modernist elements, including a curtain wall of skyscraper glass in the kitchen, polished concrete and steel finishes,the house is ready to be lived in and offer a resident the joys of a simple lifestyle.

The kitchen is very luminous and spacious. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer a wonderful view over the site and let the light create a bright and vivid atmosphere. The idea was, from the very beginning, to emphasize the beauty of existing décor elements, without upgrading them (unless they really needed an update). Beautiful and chic, with its shabby elements, the Floating Farmhouse is a wonderful retreat for those who seek peace of mind and tranquility.
