New to the Area: Living in Hampstead

Imagine a coastal getaway, a quiet neighborhood area away from bustling downtown scenes and tourist attractions.

Like what you see? If so, then Hampstead might be the place for you! Situated between Wilmington and Jacksonville, this town is known for its thriving woodlands, annual festivals for the locals, and seaside beauty.

But our expertise doesn’t just end there! Think of us as your local experts before you find your new home, during the sale, and even after you’ve signed all the paperwork and moved in!

Check out the neighborhood

One of the first things people want to know before they go house hunting is what kind of place they’ll find once they arrive. In Hampstead, you can expect a tranquil beach town with plenty of housing, community gathering places, and a mild climate that lasts through much of the year. Homes in this area cover quite the range of options: single-family houses, condominiums, gated communities, and even retirement residences. As an inclusive region, coastal North Carolina appeals to a number of families and residents, and Hampstead follows the same grain.

What’s happening?

It may not be a busy metropolis or a fast-paced city, but Hampstead has plenty of its own goings-on to keep you entertained! Whether you prefer to spend your afternoon perusing the local shops, or taste-testing regional cuisine in the evenings, or even brushing up on your history at the Poplar Grove Plantation, there’s a little something for everyone. Each year, festivals like the North Carolina Blueberry Festival bring out the locals and tourists for some area flavor, and the Coastal Carolina Air Show is a delight for all ages.

Ways to get involved

Because it carries that small-town vibe, Hampstead is an ideal community for those who wish to get involved with what’s going on around them. That could mean joining any of the numerous nonprofits or charities like Pets for Vets, or the several civic organizations sponsored through the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce. You can also find ways to channel your favorite hobbies, or try something new at any one of the fitness studios, parks, or cultural venues Hampstead has to offer. And if you’re not sure where to start, feel free to reach out to the Michelle Clark Team – our agents are always discovering new ways to involve themselves in their own neighborhoods and would be happy to lend you a few suggestions.
