The Cornillon Shipping Container House – USA

Hi everybody

Situated on nine acres of fields and woodland, this shipping container house is tucked into a secluded oasis a mile from the hamlet of Tivoli, New York. This house was designed and built by Arnaud Cornillon as a model for sustainable living. It seems like a very charming and comfortable house; perfect for brainstorming retreats, family, or friends coming together.

One enters on the ground floor to an open floor plan, with large windows on all sides. There is a floating staircase leading to the second floor, where the bedrooms and two bathrooms are located. Each bedroom has a balcony and the master has an electric fireplace. A radiant floor gives a gentle warmth and ceiling fans a summer breeze. Enjoy outdoor meals on the covered terrace and breakfast under the honey suckles for a unique stay you will never forget.

Across the road from Tivoli Bays, 1,722 acres of protected conservation land, with extensive hiking trails, and a canoe launch, and a short walk to Bard College. It is easy to take a three hours stroll along the bays and not cross a single road from across our driveway. Located between Hudson and Rhinebeck, it’s an ideal location to visit Olana, Claremont, Montgomery place, Art Omi, the Fischer Center, Opus 40,the Duchess county fairgrounds, and many exquisite restaurants.

This house creates an enjoyable relaxing experience for their guest. The ideal location at the center of the Hudson valley give it perfect access For Art, Entertainment, healthy living and exercise.

While researching this container home on Airbnb after first seeing it on Instagram; you can either rent the entire home, the first guest bedroom, or the second guest bedroom. How cool is that?! Such an impressive shipping container house!
