Average Rating for this Community

Beautiful community with a grand entrance leading to the clubhouse. Many homes have high end finishes and open floor plans.


I moved here in 2012 and LOVE the house and the community! I feel totally safe and have no concerns about leaving my house or car unlocked day or night. I go for walks, run (very slowly!), bike ride,and have zero concerns about either my personal or my homes safety. This is a very comfortable community where you can get as involved in as many activities as you wish, or not involved at all. I strongly recommend Encore!


Great community and house. Very active and a diversity of people. Many people give their time to activities and helping the community. Small enough to be know most residents -that want to be known. Nice people overall.


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.
