When Meadow Glen at Monroe first opened its doors to prospective home buyers, it was in an area of mostly woods and small commercial development but the builder of the community, K. Hovnanian, clearly had the foresight to see what the area would eventually become once the community was complete. Fast forward to 2007 and Meadow Glen homeowners are in the heart of it all with shopping, restaurants, highways, entertainment and schools all within a few minutes of the community. Read on to see the top seven reasons why you should be living in Meadow Glen at Monroe:
Monroe-Woodbury School District - With over 40 different clubs to participate in, well-known school sports teams and a low student to teacher ratio, there is much to love about the schools in Monroe.
Easy commute! - For commuters of New York City, Westchester and Northern New Jersey, one of the biggest concerns when moving to the suburbs is finding a home that's close enough to work that you won't have to trade half your day just to get to and from work. Meadow Glen residents enjoy a 75-minute train ride from Harriman to Penn Station and also have the Shortline Bus, highways and parkways at their disposal. The community is only about 43 miles to the George Washington Bridge when taking the Palisades Parkway.
Traveling is as easy as 1..2..3! - To start, you are only about 25 minutes away from Stewart International Airport where you can catch a flight to numerous different parts of the United States. Since Meadow Glen is only a couple minutes from I-87, you can also drive to hot shopping destinations like the Palisades Mall in West Nyack and, soon, The Marketplace at Newburgh.
Maintenance Free Common Areas - Living in the suburbs doesn't have to mean a laborious weekend of lawn mowing and pressure washing! Meadow Glen at Monroe residents enjoy a maintenance free lifestyle outside of their homes because a landscaping and maintenance company takes care of all of the common areas.
Gated Entrance - Gated communities are making a comeback as buyers seek more privacy and protection from outside forces. The keypad-protected gate is located at the main entrance of the community for guests and homeowners but homeowners can opt to use the rear entrance or exit with in-car wireless sensors.
