Every Single Building Has Been Designed Just for Hampstead.
Every community feature has been planned to the finest level here at Hampstead by our founders and our Town Planners, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company. No other community offers the level of detail we give home buyers at Hampstead. It's custom work and quality at attainable Montgomery prices.
Each Hampstead new home is designed thoughtfully, then modeled and integrated into a massive three-dimensional computer model of the entire community. This level of detail gives home buyers assurance that their home and lot are exactly right for them. It's a level of planning that helps us accomplish our vision of Hampstead, and gives you the tools to envision what it will become year after year.

We work with other community organizations, small independent businesses, and non-profits to promote local food and the appreciation for it - through community events, availability of produce, learning experiences and more.

Sidewalks, Street Trees and Connected Streets: Your Kids Will Thank You.
Hampstead is designed around human beings. Our streets are slow and shaded with trees. Our sidewalks are wide and connected. Our homes and parks are engaging and full of life. And our residents - of all ages and stages of life - can walk anywhere and everywhere. Imagine living in a community where you can walk to work. Where your kids can (really) walk to school. Imagine that you can walk to pull your dinner from the farm, or to the corner pub for drinks with friends. It's time to love where you live. Step by step.
From Natural Preserves To Formal Gardens, Come Enjoy Our Park Life.
Our community is designed with parks, natural preserves, gardens and greens. In fact, more than 30% of Hampstead is green space. These special places offer an escape from daily life, and a chance to reconnect with nature.
Preserving Our Community For a Lasting, Affordable Tomorrow.
A self-sufficient community like Hampstead holds its value in a way that suburbs and isolated homes simply don't. Hampstead is walkable, multi-generational, and appeals to the widest range of residents. The value of your home is important to us: all Hampstead homes are constructed with green building features including maximum energy efficiency components, low maintenance materials, flexible home designs and much more. Hampstead also featured the first Energy Star 3.0 Home in Alabama. Over 30% of Hampstead's 416 acre community plan is protected as green space. This creates preserved open space for residents that includes parks, preserves, gardens, public squares, play fields, walking trails and our Hampstead Lake. The Hampstead plan is designed to preserve the land's old growth trees, waterways, and natural terrain.
