About Hyde Park - Our History
Owner Amy Vann Flowers can trace her family history on the farm in to 1896,
when it was owned by her great-great-grandmother”s family and known as
Elsey Farm. Although parcels were sold off over the years, Amy’s grandfather
Paul Melvin Elsey, a Charleston Country Magistrate, bought back the farm piece
by piece until, by the end of the 1950s, he had reassembled the original
property. He left the farm to his young grandchildren in 1985. Amy renamed it
Hyde Park Farm, after a main road that runs nearby. An avid player and lover of
the sport, in 2004 Amy began working to realize her dream –  to build the best
and most fun polo club in Charleston.
Beech Hill House
The centerpiece of the farm is the old
homestead, which once stood near
Summerville, SC. The house, built
in1865, was the childhood home of
Amy's great-great-grandmother. No one
had lived in it for nearly 50 years when it
was moved to the farm and restored.
Wood for the project was shipped south
from a soon-to-be-demolished old mill
in Virginia.
The mill timbers were combined with imported white pine to make up an
interior that keeps its old feel, and includes the finest up-to-date amenities.
The house has four bedrooms, three
baths, a big fireplace and the
furnishings of Old Charleston. It's
called Beech Hill House, after the
crossroads where it once stood.
Today, Beech Hill House is available
for your enjoyment and offers a
unique opportunity to vacation on a
working polo farm located in the
South Carolina Lowcountry – one of
our country's most beautiful, historical
Hyde Park Farm and Polo Club
