My inlaws are looking at building a home in this 55+ community. Anyone familiar? Thoughts on area or quality of homes?

Thanks.

I'm familiar with East Greenwich and overall it's a nice area to be in. I have no particular knowledge of that development other than where it's at. I believe it's a Beazer development and they have a pretty decent reputation around the area.

Probably the only issue would be how old are they and how much can they tolerate driving? Outside of Platt's Nursery which is right there, you're a little detached where that development is. The nearest shopping center is in Gibbstown which is part of Greenwich Township and that's a little bit 'sketchier' of an area. The ShopRite there is decent and affordable. There isn't much else in that plaza though. North of there you have a Wawa, McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts, but those are all situated around the Paulsboro truckstop. To get to 'nicer' places and more amenities you are either driving south to Swedesboro/Logan/Woolwich or Mullica Hill. To do big shopping you pretty much have to head north into Deptford or Cherry Hill. So, it's a nice area, very quiet, but perhaps not ideal for older people with limited mobility or independence. You can't survive out there without a car and the stamina to drive 15-20 miles one way to get somewhere.

Thanks for the info! I think they've decided to stay put in West Deptford for now. They lot they were considering sold. I'm hoping they downsize to a single story, but I won't be surprised when they stay in their current home.
