This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from November 01, 2021
Amazing opportunity to live in Monroe with this 3 bedroom, 1 bath ranch minutes from Lake Zoar. This home has been loved and cared for by the current owners for over 50 years! 2 bedrooms have hardwood flooring (2 currently have wall to wall carpeting), eat in kitchen with balcony & stairs to front yard, walk up attic for storage and full basement with workshop area, laundry & more storage opportunities. The roof is 6 years young, and the mechanicals have been cared for and serviced regularly. The landscaping is lovely and the perennials are in full color. The backyard has a nice level area for outdoor entertainment, relaxing around a bonfire or having a fun game of volleyball. There's plenty of off street parking with room for your boat, too. Beautiful Lake Zoar is only 1.8 miles away with access for Monroe residents and boat ramp permits are available through the town. Spend the day out on the water or enjoy grabbing a meal at the Lake Zoar Drive In. Take a hike in Webb Mountain Park, or visit the Discovery Center, too, less than 2 miles up the street. This home sits in a great commuter location, as well, with access to I84 (12 min), Route 25 & Connector to I-95 & Merritt Parkway (15 min) & Route 34 (2 min) & only 15 minutes to the center of town. Enjoy Wolfe Park with its pool & bike paths, playscapes for the kids & Friday night concerts for the summer. You're not just buying a house, your starting your next chapter with the opportunity for an enjoyable lifestyle.
