I heard this was a nice area to live in Monroe. Any feedback?

It is a nice, family-oriented community. The main drawback to many people would be the small lot sizes. On the other hand, a lot of people like having their neighbors so close by. There are always a lot of children playing and riding their bikes on the roads there, because of the close proximity of the homes. It is very safe. You do have to pay HOA dues though, and you would need approval for many home improvement projects.

Great Oak Farm

Default Whitney Farms

Whitney Farms not Great Oak Farms. I know Great Oak Farms you have to pay HOA fees= ridiculous, but in Whitney Farms.

Oh, sorry! Whitney Farms is nice, I have several friends who live there. One of the homes I've been to looks directly over the golf course and pond, it's a pretty view. There are a lot of families there, and everyone is very friendly with one another. Each year they have a huge, neighborhood tag sale. Some of the homes are on half acre or so lots, but they are still a nice size. (most of Monroe has one acre zoning) I've never heard of anyone complain about living in Whitney Farms.

Just an FYI--If you should look at any colonials that were built in the 80's, be cautious of those that were built by B***** construction. They built many of them, and many were thrown together pretty slapdash/sloppy/shoddy.
