Welcome to 2 Shannon Lane along Mantua Creek
A most unique property in Gloucester County, this ultra-private 3.1+ acre estate is a hidden gem in
a secluded and private location, a private oasis inside and out. Built in 1988, this beautiful Tudor
home was renovated in 2005, doubling the living space. With many custom features, the home has
been meticulously appointed and refreshed with expansive living spaces, 2-story ceilings and rich
wood accents, adding many luxury features, an elevator and an abundance of quality upgrades. The
property was originally subdivided from a working, deed-restricted 120-acre cattle ranch behind
mature, forested woods with Mantua Creek forms its border. Additionally, the home has been
carefully configured to “Universal Design” guidelines with wide doorways and passageways for all
ages and abilities to navigate.
A paver driveway leads to this statuesque home surrounded by 100 year old Oak trees and a rare
Black Walnut. This custom home is accented with large areas of hardscaping including a circular
driveway surrounding an island of native grasses and ground cover. Upon entrance, the dramatic
foyer is accented with a curved oak staircase and 17’ high ceilings. From the entry area, the home’s
living space fans out on both sides with an abundance of beautifully crafted custom built-ins and
cabinetry and many interesting architectural elements.
The centerpiece of this gorgeous custom home is the expansive great room. Floor-to-ceiling arched
windows bring the 2+ acres of magnificent hardwoods into the home. This room offers a door to
the deck, a floor-to-ceiling stone wall with a two-sided gas fireplace into the kitchen. Adjacent is a
bar area separated by four custom oak columns. Overlooking the great room is the bridge from the
upstairs hallway to the main bedroom suite. A spaciously designed and appointed gourmet kitchen
offers three islands, with granite countertops, providing counter space, storage drawers and
appliances. There is a kitchen bar area with custom display cabinetry and a see-through brick gas
fireplace. Other kitchen elements include ceramic heated floors, a 17’ high angled ceiling with
wooden beams and accent lighting, and large Pella windows next to a sliding glass door to the
outside gas grill and eating area. Next to the kitchen is a cozy breakfast nook, with 6 large skylights,
surrounded by 5 Pella windows overlooking the deck and woods. Also on the main floor is the
library with a stone fireplace a full bath. A powder room and a side entrance foyer granting access to the 3 car garage.
Up on the second floor you’ll find all 5 spacious bedrooms and an additional full bath. The main bedroom suite offers a separate powder room and beautifully appointed bath ensuite with heated tile floors, a steam shower and a walk-in closet as well as a wall of additional closet space.

and storage options. Wonderful outdoor living offers a perfect spot for informal family gatherings
or entertaining large or small, with a 1000+ square foot Trex deck, as well as 2 professional golf
