Property Description

The property is known as Orapax, one of the largest hunting preserves on the East Coast open to the public.

Owners enjoy a conditional use permit for events at the mansion, the cottage, the clubhouse and the barn. As one of the busiest preserves in the country, the property can host 12+ simultaneous upland hunts and features a 66 acre center field and multiple fields of managed flat lands full of broom straw, ideal for bird hunting. 8-ac fishing lake and boat house, a fishing pond and a 4-ac duck pond.
