Hampton Cove is a beautifully landscaped, planned community situated in a valley in the foothills of Monte Sano. Since Hampton Cove is located within the Huntsville, Alabama, city limits, Hampton Cove receives all the benefits of city services while defining a small-town way of life. A lushly landscaped waterfall and fieldstone springhouse greet you at the main entrance.
Hampton Cove began development in 1992 and is composed of 20 different neighborhoods, some of which are still growing today. Each neighborhood offers different living options ranging from 1,800-8,000 square feet in size in the forms of estate luxury homes, family-sized homes, zero lot-line patio homes, and townhomes. Three of our communities have contracted lawn maintenance services.
