The 12 acre estate is surrounded by more than 6000 acres of preserved land which provides some of the best hunting and fishing New Jersey has to offer. Bird watching at Eagle Manor is unparalleled in the continental United States due to its central location on the eastern migratory flyway and it’s large concentration of bald eagles, ospreys, and other raptors unmatched anywhere else in New Jersey.
The manor house can accommodate the largest of groups with 10 classically appointed bedrooms, 8 1/2 marble bathrooms and 6 fireplaces. The estate grounds also boast a large river lodge with a kitchen and dining hall, expansive multi-tiered 2400 sq. ft. deck overlooking the Cohansey, large private boat ramp, dock, billiard/game house, 5600 sq. ft. historic dairy barn, corn crib, and several other buildings of historic interest.
Eagle Manor has a long and colorful history which includes the revolutionary war, the underground railroad, pirates, bootleggers, smugglers, and ghosts. The historic manor home, known previously as the Sheppard Brick House, was built in 1736 by English settlers and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. It features extremely rare and historic classic brick patterns and Flemish bond brickwork. It has been completely renovated to provide all necessary modern amenities while still preserving its original charm.
