About Shannon French

When I was 27 years old, I decided to sell real estate. Shortly after at the age of 29, I decided to open my own brokerage, Southern Trade Realty (Oct. 2006 so you do the math to see how old I am now)! I quickly learned to combine my passion for designing, creating and decorating to another level. I started to invest in real estate at a very young age, and I am still very passionate about it. I really enjoy getting to know my guests and proud to say I now have repeat buisness. I concentrate on making sure my guests are happy and I take pride in the comfort of my properties and of course, the decor has to be just right. Feel free to call me Shannon 804-815-1912.

Shannon French purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Shannon French chose Gloucester

This area is where I personally grew up. I remember the days on the river at a very young age. I fished, crabbed, learned how to swim, relax, kayak, explore and I am still enjoying all of this today with my family and friends.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Pictures cannot even describe this property (many of our guests say this once they arrive). It is one of the most serene places to be. Listening to the waves crash up against the rocks at night, taking a nap in the hammock on a warm summer afternoon, to watching the Osprey on the river, there is not a better place to enjoy nature at it's best. It is all at your fingertips.

Charming country house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this riverside home. It's far enough away from everything to afford some nice peace and quiet but not isolated as there are are other homes nearby. We came to bring our grandchildren to see Williamsburg and Jamestown and to visit Busch Gardens. The house was a little farther from Williamsburg than we would have liked (30+ miles), but only a few miles from nearby Gloucester Courthouse, which has shopping and restaurants. The house is a nicely renovated older home with lots of room for everyone. You won't be disappointed.

Relaxing, comfortable and inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time getting together as a family outside of the home we raised our children in. (We downsized). This farmhouse home was a great choice for us. The home was easy to navigate from a renter's point of view. The living areas were large and the furniture was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was a joy to work in and could accommodate 3 of us. Even though it was cold we used the kayaks. The beach and water were absolutely beautiful. The owners were nearby but gave us free reign. The master bedroom downstairs was a big draw for my husband and I. Plus the fact that all the beds were king sized -- made the house appealing. The home was clean, had nice linens, and spectacular views! Oh yes, all of us appreciated the "get away from the city" feel. Thanks so much to the Frenches for having us.
