Classic Design, Modern Amenities

Despite the classic aesthetic, Mt Laurel homes are the epitome of modern convenience. From walk-in pantries and ample storage throughout the homes to pre-wiring for high-speed internet, Mt Laurel homes are built for 21st-century living.

They're also incredibly energy efficient. The homes feature 10-foot ceilings to keep things cool in the summer and wood-burning fireplaces to keep things toasty in wintertime. All year long residents enjoy the energy savings generated from underground utilities, shaded lots, dual-pane windows and tankless water heaters.

Built With Conservation in Mind

The motto of the Town of Mt Laurel is "We leave the trees." Mt Laurel was built with respect for existing vegetation and topography, to maintain the land's integrity, beauty and ecological value. While building a suburb generally starts with clear-cutting and leveling the land, the mature trees and rolling hills of Mt Laurel help to further establish its traditional, small-town feel. The incorporation of natural topography also helps distinguish the Town of Mt Laurel from other communities. Learn more about the Natural Beauty found at Mt Laurel.
