Located on a vast 280 acre farm in the town of Pennsylvania this modern farmhouse blends simplicity of design with comfort energy-efficiency and smart architecture that responds to the specific needs of the site.

All the four homes share a common terrace that also contains walkways that weave through the thick vegetation and provide stunning views of the scenery outside.

Living among the treetops becomes even more tranquil with the natural interiors eliminating any unnecessary disturbances and the décor being kept simple minimal and unassuming.
