Shannon Manor lies in an impeccable garden domain just below the cloud-line in Shannon Estate, with luscious fruit trees just too numerous to count, and include star fruit, Barbados cherry, mango, grapefruit, orange and banana. The kitchen garden has terraces of fresh herbs and spices such as rosemary, parsley, dill, anise and ginger. The blossoms of a myriad tropical vines and flowering shrubs imbue the air with tropical fragrances that float in on the trade wind breezes.
This is one of those few homes that actually defines the words "turn key". The present owners have taken extreme measures to keep the woodwork, pool, electrical fittings, and every moving part on the property in mint condition, with a spare part, sometimes even two or three spares, neatly stored on site so that the whole place is running as a well-oiled machine.
The main house has 3-bedrooms and 3 1/2-bathrooms and the 1-bedroom guesthouse is completely independent. What makes this property very unique is an abundance of well-stocked storage areas, three independent garages, four full-size, walk-in storage closets plus an additional refrigerated, walk-through wine cellar/cool box.
Most of the other residents in this sophisticated and cordial estate have chosen to live year-round in this particular community because of the consistently cool temperatures due to its elevated position; high enough to avoid mosquitoes and sand flies found at the lower elevations and low enough to be under the persistent cloud coverage of the surrounding hilltops that can cause problems related to the excess humidity.
When considering the perfect location to live on any island, it is usually convenient to have a central position - not only to town for shopping but also to the beaches and ports of entry. This property is midway between the West End ferry terminal and Beef Island airport; Road Town, the numerous north shore beaches and several marinas are all about the same distance away.
Convenient location, high quality finishes, physically and spiritually nurturing, comfortable living, and attention to detail - all words that fittingly describe this exceptional and close to perfect home.
