The Rancocas Woods neighborhood in Mount Laurel, NJ is a small community on the northern edge of town, with the average house being three bedrooms and one bath. Over time many of these homes have been expanded, so don’t be surprised if you find a home larger than that. And why wouldn’t you expand, when many of the lots are over a quarter of an acre and backing to beautiful untouched wooded sanctuaries.

Originally Rancocas Woods was built as a vacation spot for New Yorkers / North Jersey folks that wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of their lives, and you will find some homes here are situated perfectly to give you just that. The neighborhood offers relaxing sounds of nature, large shading trees, and in some cases water edge lots. Running behind the Rancocas Woods neighborhood is the Rancocas Creek and the neighboring Rancocas State Park. A quick ride can have you exploring nature trails throughout over 58 acres of preserved land, access to guided tours, camps and more.
Situated on Creek Road is the Rancocas Woods Shops. Originally an amusement park setting for those vacationers, in later times this stretch of businesses became more of an every day type of store front. Among the quaint village are mom and pop owned facilities, weekend craft and antique shows, rare finds, and good eats. As the economy turned it seemed as though these small businesses could not survive and one by one closed their doors. Luckily, a real estate developer has recently purchased the properties, and is rumored to have big plans to revitalize what was for years a highly trafficked spot for local families and visitors.
As these plans develop and become known, I will be sure to update you. In the meantime, those who are familiar with this developer and his successes in the past, are anxious to see what the plan is.
