Encore Monroe is really a phenomenal community. It's gated and although it's a 55+ community you can find great options for 2-story homes. We really didn't want a ranch floor plan but we did want a community with all the fancy amenities and clubhouse. We got everything we could want here and recommend it to anyone.
