Property at a Glance: The Castle at Skylands Manor
With The Castle at Skylands Manor’s weathered stone façade, it’d be easy to picture it in a medieval European city. The building was actually constructed in the 1920s, but its anachronistic design - including arched doorways, a cross-gabled roof, and Tudor Revival touches - gives the manor a fairy-tale charm. It helps that the building stands amid 1,000 acres of manicured gardens and woodlands.
The Castle at Skylands Manor is a grand fifty-four room granite Tudor Revival mansion situated on one hundred acres of formal and naturalized gardens located in the New Jersey Botanical Gardens. The Skylands Castle was designed by noted American Architect John Russell Pope who was educated at Ecole des Beaux Aris in Paris. His other works include The National Archives and the National Gallery of Art. The builder was Elliot Brown Company, a New York City firm that also built estates for Franklin Roosevelt and E. Rolland Harriman. The Skylands Castle possesses a remarkable collection of antique stain glass medallions set in leaded windows from sixteenth century German, Swiss and Bavarian historical sites. Many typical features of the Tudor Revival style were incorporated into the design including the extensive use of stone, large groups of rectangular windows, pane glass windows, clusters of chimneys, paneled walls, and half timbering.
Ringwood, New Jersey: Former Mining Town Filled with Natural Treasures in Ramapo Mountains
The highland town of Ringwood sits 39 miles northwest of New York City in the Ramapo Mountains - a region filled with lakes, forests, and other natural attractions. Ringwood State Park surrounds The Castle at Skylands Manor and contains some of the original buildings and mines dating back to the 18th century, when Ringwood was a leader in the iron industry. Within Ringwood State Park is Ringwood Manor, a 19th-century mansion that’s now a National Historic Landmark. The park is also home to the New Jersey Botanical Garden at Skyland, where year-round floral displays help earn the Garden State the right to keep its nickname.
