Now it's worth noting the disparity between the listed price highs and lows. This is mostly due to the fact that there are five models in Meadow Glen at Monroe. I don't have exact square footage on each model, though they do vary for even the same model due to finished basements, but from what I've gathered the models range from smallest to largest in this order: Georgetown, West Point, Lehigh, Belmont and Cornell. I have included a summary of each model to give you a better idea of what each one is like.

Model Descriptions:

Georgetown: The Georgetown model is a three bedroom, two and a half bathroom model with a three story layout. You enter the home from the lowest level, which is below grade in the back but above grade in the front of the home.

On the lowest level there is an entry foyer, one car garage, laundry room, storage closet and a small basement area. Most Georgetown models I've been in have unfinished basements but there are a few with the finished basement. A well finished basement in this model is spectacular to have. First living level has a family room, dining room, kitchen, living room, half bathroom and dinette area with access to the rear patio. The third level, second living level, contains two bedrooms next to one main bathroom and a master suite with walk-in closet and master bathroom.

West Point: I found the West Point to be an interesting model but a little small for my liking. You walk into the first level where there is a coat closet, one car garage, kitchen, eat-in kitchen area, dining room and living/family room. Access to the full basement is through the first floor, near the foyer and stairs leading to the second floor. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom sit across from the master suite with master bathroom.

Lehigh Model
Above: Lehigh Model Living/Dining Area

Lehigh: The Lehigh is the only two car garage model in the community and features three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms. It's a great layout for someone who is looking for a lot of open space because the kitchen opens to the family room and eat-in kitchen with no walls separating the rooms. Before I get ahead of myself with the first floor, I have to describe the entry way. The door opens to a bi-level type stair arrangement with the left stairs going to the first living level and the right side leading downstairs to the two car garage. Because of the two car garage under configuration, the basement is about half the size of the first floor. I would definitely look for this model with a finished basement but you could certainly do it afterwards if you wanted to.

First floor contains the kitchen, eat-in kitchen, family room, dining room, living room and half bathroom. It's very similar in layout to the Georgetown model but bigger. The upstairs is magnificent as well, featuring a huge master suite with a walk-in closet and master bathroom. The other bedrooms are large, notably larger than some single family homes, and the laundry room is on the second floor.

Belmont Kitchen
Above: Belmont Kitchen/Family Room/Dining Room/Living Room

Belmont/Cornell: The Belmont and Cornell models are nearly identical with the exception of the Belmont serving as the inside units and the Cornells on the end of each building. The main difference between the two are two bay windows: one in the dining room and one in the master bathroom sitting over the tub. Also, you walk in from the front of the home in the Belmont model versus the Cornell model's side entrance.

This model is my personal favorite because of the spacious layout. On the first floor are the one car garage, two closets (coat and storage), a half bathroom, access to the basement (more on that in a sec), two story family room and kitchen with breakfast bar. In walk-out basement configurations this home will feature a deck off of the kitchen and a patio at the ground level (basement). I would absolutely, 100% recommend finding this model with a finished, walk-out basement if possible because it'll bring the finished square footage up from 1923/1930 sq.ft. to 2583/2600 sq.ft. (estimated sq.ft. numbers).

Second level of the Belmont/Cornell hosts two nice size bedrooms with a main bathroom, laundry room across the hall from the master bedroom and a master suite with TWO walk-in closets and a big bathroom.

The Cornell model can sometimes be found with a fourth bedroom though it is rare. The fourth bedroom sits over the family room and takes away from the abundant natural light that would otherwise fill the room. It's a trade off for the fourth bedroom but it may be worth it depending on your needs.

Conclusion:

Buying Advice:

Meadow Glen at Monroe has been hit with a few foreclosures over the past 12 months which has wreaked havoc on pricing in the community. While I don't necessarily think it's a bad time to buy in the community, negotiability on home prices may be limited as many homeowners are near or below what they paid for the home a few years back. I would still recommend the community to most home buyers, especially commuters of Westchester, northern New Jersey and New York City but the market is currently favoring a hold time of at least 3-5 years for these homes. Once the economy and credit crisis gets straightened out I think the excellent location to services and places of employment will ensure strong resale value for the community.

Renting Advice:

Rental inventory is very limited in Meadow Glen with only three active rentals as of this writing. Facing a slow buyer market, many sellers are weighing their options and considering renting out their homes instead. Meadow Glen is a great rental community due to its amenities and convenient location. I would recommend Meadow Glen if you are looking for a maintenance free lifestyle with useful community amenities and a relatively short drive/ride to work.

Introducing 13 Case Court. . .
Joshua Ferris (Keller Williams Realty)

Part of what makes 13 Case Court so special happens before you even walk in the door. When you first enter the community you can rest easy knowing that it’s gated which helps keep out unwanted or unnecessary visitors from driving through the community.

Meadow Glen at Monroe Clubhouse

Then you have the clubhouse and other community amenities within easy walking distance of the Belmont model residing at 13 Case Court, once a builder’s model home. For example, the tennis court sits in a grassy hillside near Case Court while the clubhouse features a state of the art fitness center, heated outdoor swimming pool, playground area, well-appointed lounge and a kitchen should you need to prepare anything in the lounge area.

But the truly best part of 13 Case Court, before you even walk into the front door, is the private cul-de-sac location. As a Belmont model in the back row of Case Court, 13 Case looks over the entire cul-de-sac and backs to woodlands.

Imagine you are just getting home from work and have guests coming over for your very first dinner party. You park in the spacious driveway and walk up to the front door, where you’re thrilled to see how the home is filled with natural light that accents the designer wall colors perfectly.

Meadow Glen at Monroe

You walk through the open two-story family room to the gourmet-style kitchen to grab a snack before you head upstairs into the luxurious master suite to pick out what you will wear tonight. You are relieved that you don’t have to run around the entire house looking for something to wear anymore because your new home now has a laundry room across the hall from the master suite in addition to two walk-in closets inside the suite.

As you finish getting ready, you look through the wood blinds hanging over the balcony door and windows and see your significant other arriving home from work.

A trip downstairs and a quick hug later, you are sharing the trials and tribulations of your work days together. Being the multi-tasker that you are, you find yourself right at home getting the prep work done for tonight’s dinner while your other half sits opposite of you at the granite breakfast bar.

After setting the dining table in the formal dining room, large enough to accommodate six or more, and putting the final touches on the dish everyone knows you for, you run upstairs to get ready.

Your guests arrive early and are completely amazed by the grandeur of your new home with its soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, deck off of the kitchen and the crown jewel of the first floor: The remote-controlled gas fireplace in the family room. Your granite breakfast bar, now serving as the perfect hor d’oeuvres showcase, invites your guests to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace in the family room and chat with you while you tend to the main course baking in the oven.

After a resounding night of success, your guests are dying to know exactly how you found this diamond of a home. They hint at their curiosity to know what you paid for the home and you, knowing they’ll never believe the steal of a deal you got the home for, ask them for their guesses first.

“$550,000 at least!” exclaims one of your guests.

“No, no, it has to be way more than that. They have a huge townhouse backing to woods on a cul-de-sac in a gated community, with a clubhouse, heated outdoor swimming pool, tennis court, great shopping only a minute or two away and they’re less than 50 miles from Manhattan. This place must have cost at least $650,000!” insists another guest.

Just shy of a laugh, you can share one last shocking surprise with your guests: It was only $405,000!

Meadow Glen at Monroe: Top 7 Reasons to Live Here
Joshua Ferris (Keller Williams Realty)

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.

Clubhouse & Amenities - Meadow Glen at Monroe raised the bar for luxurious townhouse living with the construction of their spacious, well-appointed clubhouse which features a lounge area where you can sit with guests and watch tv or talk with friends by the fireside. Further inside, the state of the art fitness center is large enough to accommodate even the most discerning fitness buff's needs. Moving beyond the clubhouse, residents will enjoy exclusive use of the heated outdoor swimming pool, playground and private tennis court.

Shopping & Restaurants - Late night runs to the convenience store are a thing of the past because Meadow Glen is less than two minutes from major retailers Wal-Mart, BJ's and Target. When you are looking for the latest trends in fashion and accessories, look no further than the Woodbury Common Premium Oulets, also only a few minutes away. Lastly, for evenings out, with or without the family, you can take advantage of the many area restaurants including Cosimo's, TGI Friday and UNO Chicago Grill.

Meadow Glen at Monroe offers an outstanding value for any home buyer looking to move to the suburbs without having to sacrifice the low maintenance lifestyle of city living. With all the conveniences of supermarkets, retail and restaurants nearby combined with the charming, quiet suburban setting, Meadow Glen is a gem of a neighborhood anyone would be proud to call home.
