Property Description

Hush-Hush Farm aka Prevost Manor, represents Greene County, NY on the National Register of Historic Places. British army Major Augustine Prevost constructed the manor in 1793,after the end of the Revolutionary War. The manor is currently offered on 126 acres of lush, forested farmland remaining from an original 7,000 acre land grant. Prevost, despite having served in the British army, was well connected with the founding fathers of the U.S., notably Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Subsequent owners include members of the Vanderbilt family. The house is poised at the culmination of a serpentine drive , enjoying an idyllic setting framed by undulating meadows, gracious gardens, sparkling stream and a fish/skate/swim pond. A gingerly restored interior reflects the ambiance of the 18th century while embracing present day amenities. There are 7 fireplaces, parlors, tap room and wide board hemlock floors.A pair of centuries old hand-hewn timber-peg barns completes the farmstead.
