About 1 Marcel 4 Road

Floating Farmhouse. This c1820 four-bedroom three-bath manor home, featured in Dwell, ArchDigest and the WSJ, extends over 3,400 square feet and 3.45 idyllic acres of waterfront splendor, open fields, and virgin pine forest. Floating Farmhouse also operates as a renowned luxury vacation rental, photo shoot location, and company offsite/retreat venue, offering the unique opportunity of enjoying a stunning private home while generating an average annual net return of 10%. Perched at the edge of a pristine Catskills swimming creek & waterfall, the farmhouse “floats” above the surface of the water, giving this home its iconic name. Located in picturesque Sullivan County, a burgeoning community of celebs, creatives, NYC ex-pats & weekenders, and following a four-year design/rebuild process by acclaimed designer/owner Tom Givone, the home and original barn have been meticulously restored to their period grandeur while melding uniquely modern architecture and finishes. Travel + Leisure calls it 'the most beautiful' destination in the Catskills and Dwell Magazine “a living laboratory for how to bring the vernacular past into the present.” With that in mind, the enormous kitchen includes 20ft vaulted ceilings with massive hand-hewn beams, radiant polished concrete floors, and a soaring 'curtain wall' of glass & steel most commonly found in skyscrapers. Finished with locally-quarried bluestone countertops, custom cabinetry, and wood burning pizza oven, the cathedral-like space was conceived for entertaining and connecting with friends & family while taking in breathtaking views of the winding waterfront and “MacBarn,' an 1800's structure reimagined with translucent panels of anodized aluminum (most commonly used for MacBooks) flooding the barn's soaring interior with otherworldly light. The barn also features a retractable door, heating system, and dimming chandeliers for dinner parties, retreats & intimate events bar none, plus a new septic system for future expansion. Off the kitchen is the 1000sf Great Room with oversized wood burning fireplace, original wide plank floors, custom wainscoting milled from trees on the property, and banks of original wavy-glass and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the creek & waterfall. Above the great room, is the primary suite, which also enjoys water views and is bathed in natural light, with six sets of windows. An oversized wood burning fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and two more massive hand-hewn ceiling beams round out the sleeping space. In the primary bath you’ll find jack and jill sinks, a freestanding jet soaking tub, bidet units and a walk-in rain shower. The northern wing of the house features three more bedrooms and office, a half bath downstairs & full bath upstairs with stainless steel-wrapped antique copper soaking tub and a centuries-old Roman marble sink. This celebrated home is perfectly situated within two hours of NYC, 2.5 hours of Philadelphia, and 15 miles of the area's most sought-after attractions, including world-class concerts at Bethel Woods, the Tusten hiking trails overlooking the Delaware River, skiing at Big Bear, the picturesque river town of Narrowsburg, and some of the finest dining and farmer's markets in the Catskills. Floating Farmhouse rental revenue P&L statement provided upon request. Adjacent land parcel also available for further development.
