Located in the heart of Medford, NJ off of both Tuckerton and Taunton Road you’ll find one of the hidden gems in this lovely town. Oakwood Lakes is a community of 272 single-family detached homes surrounded by natural beauty. This historic section of Medford boasts some of the best flora and fauna that the Southern New Jersey Pinelands have to offer.
Homes vary tremendously in architecture leaving the community looking unique without sacrificing the pleasing, “home-y” aesthetic. Just like the structure and floor plans, the sale prices in Oakwood differ home-to-home. Mid-300 thousands are common, but the true range of costs has been anywhere between 150-500k over the past three years.
Oakwood’s dam just off Himmelein road was originally built in the 50’s creating over 20 acres of lakes. It has since been rebuilt in 2002. In 1957 the Oakwood Colony Club was created (Name changed to Oakwood Lakes Community Association). The association maintains several neighborhood common areas in Oakwood including multiple lake access, a beach, tennis courts, jungle gyms, and picnic areas for the residents to enjoy.
In the early days of development, some of the first residents were Nancy and Frank Magnussen, who bought a custom Walt Claypool-built home on Oakwood Drive in April of 1959. This was back when Medford was much less developed as a whole and Tuckerton Road was still made of dirt! Much of the area was used as hunting grounds.
Today, the neighborhood is filled with families walking dogs and riding bikes making it a great place for folks who want to raise their kids there. Medford has long been sought after for their tremendous school systems and “get away from it all” type of living and Oakwood Lakes is no exception.

The featured neighborhood this week is The Dominion neighborhood in Marlton. Located off Evans road a mere minute of two away from Route 73 in Marlton, Dominion was built by Fentell between 1989-1998. The average age of a dominion home is 25 years. Most lots encompass about 1/3rd acre with living space ranging from 2200-3000 square feet. 4-5 bedrooms are the norm accompanied by either 2.5 or 3.5 bathrooms with 2-car garages. Basements are common in Dominion which adds both a level to the home and a level of appeal in Marlton where basements can be tough to come by.
With a total of 183 homes registered on the MLS, and approximately 60 homes sold since 2010, Dominion properties tend to go for somewhere between mid-300’s to low-400’s. That is not to say there are not exceptions, however. The particularly stellar units have gone for over 500k. Our team member Nick Versaggi just recently put 2 Wheatland Court under contract for 500k even.
The surrounding areas near the Dominion neighborhood offer just as much as the neighborhood itself for prospective buyers. Many of the Marlton hotspots from eateries, shops, grocery stores, and schools are all within a 5-minute drive of Dominion. Those who are seeking a catholic schooling system for their children will be pleasantly surprised knowing St. Joan of Arc’s school lies just beyond Dominion, also on Evans Road.
