Southern Living Inspired Community, Hampstead Montgomery, Anna Lowder Harvi Sahota


For nearly 50 years, Southern Living magazine has been a leading inspiration for the region, featuring ideas and happenings in the South. The Southern Living brand is synonymous with quality, integrity, and the South.

"Southern Living Inspired Communities" are a select group of neighborhoods marked by charm, taste, and Southern spirit. These hand-picked communities embrace a pride of place and encourage new traditions of living in the South.

Anna Lowder and Harvi Sahota are the Directors of Design and Development for Hampstead, and have worked with Southern Living on this designation over the past few months. "We are honored for Hampstead to be chosen as Alabama’s first "Southern Living Inspired Community," as this highlights the hard work and thoughtful design that have gone into our community over the past seven years,” says Sahota. "The Southern Living designation is a fantastic boost for Hampstead homeowners, and brings significant tourism and economic benefits to the Montgomery area.

"Southern Living saw the vibrant lifestyle at Hampstead, and recognized that the activity, sense of community, and quality at Hampstead was an ideal fit for them,” Lowder says. "We are thrilled to work with a brand as respected and well known as Southern Living."

An award-winning community, Hampstead is ideally located in east Montgomery at the heart of the city’s growth area near national retail, new schools, and places of work. Hampstead is an hour’s drive from Birmingham, two hours from Atlanta, and three hours from the Gulf Coast.

An original town plan by Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, Hampstead continues the tradition of community building and craftsmanship with its vibrancy and friendliness, elegant architecture, town center, neighborhood school, parks and preserves, boating, fishing, swimming, and much more. We look forward to welcoming you home to Hampstead!
