There are farmhouses and then there are modern farmhouses. What we haven’t seen so much of, until now at least, is the label of “postmodern Danish farmhouse.”

This oddball beauty of a home has hit the market in Millerton, New York, and it can best be described as a combination of white-walled minimalism, country cabin coziness, and eccentric material choices. In other words: post-modern Danish farmhouse.

Designed by Grzywinski+Pons in 2011, the inside of the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home is anything but country. Polished concrete floors stretch across the 2,124-square-foot residence. Refined touches like a floating staircase, orb fireplace, and and ultra-white walls give it a decidedly contemporary feel. A detached guesthouse echoes the same design ethos.

Outside, things get a little weirder (in a good way!). The house centers around a sleek backyard pool that’s recessed into a wooden deck with a fire pit and Jacuzzi. The star of the show, though, are the ICF panels that are clad in aluminum, giving the house a very cool and very unexpected shine.

Quirky enough for you? 80 Shagroy Road is listed at $1,395,000.
