The Ringling Brothers Manor in Oak Ridge, New Jersey, is offered in “as in” condition to buyers who can envision returning the iconic structure to its former glory.
Built in 1916, this unique property offers a restoration opportunity in the Skylands Region of New Jersey.
Located on over 4.6 acres, only 38 miles from New York City, the property has water views with access to Lake Swannanoa.
Originally owned by Alfred T. Ringling of the famous circus family, the property offers glimpses of its opulent past.
The historical home has a stone stucco exterior, white columns, and an asphalt roof.
Situated in a secluded, forested area, the property is the epitome of privacy.
With 18 bedrooms and eight bathrooms (five full, three half), the property has tons of potential.
With exposed beams and wooden floors in parts of the home, it retains historic charm in addition to the various religious fixtures and fittings from when it was owned by a church.
The distinctive fireplace is an impressive period feature.
There is a room, which apparently served as a chapel, with stained glass windows, red carpet, and wooden pews.
With three stories and a partly finished basement, the home is beyond spacious.
The property, located at 2 Manor Drive, Oak Ridge, New Jersey, is listed for $800,000.
