Meadow Edge

Meadow Edge is one of the largest commissions Architect Issac H. Green ever had. It was built for Anson Hard and his bride, Florence Bourne Hard by Commodore Bourne, on the far eastern-most property owned by the Commodore, as a wedding gift to the couple in 1905. It is colonial revival in style. The couple eventually divorced and Anson Hard built another estate, which is now known as Southaven County Park, in Brookhaven, NY.
