Marlboro Farms is the type of place for people who appreciate the charm and distances of the country. Rocky Point, with a population of 1,700 residents, has only a few stores of its own. Residents will do most of their commercial activity in either Castle Hayne (8 minutes away) or Burgaw (13 minutes away.)
Of course that could all change in the near future. Plans are in the works for several new developments, including one that would add 750 homes and likely double the population of the town. More people likely means more commerce, but it could also mean a loss of the country feel that first attracted folks to Rocky Point.
Marlboro Farms has no HOA. The neighborhood also lacks the community amenities found in other areas, like a community pool or playground.
So far in 2022 three homes have sold in Marlboro Farms for an average price of $333,333.
Marlboro Farms is in the Rocky Point Elementary, Cape Fear Middle, HeideTrask High school districts.
