The self proclaimed "Seafood Capital of the Carolinas," Hampstead is located on the southeast coast of North Carolina, and continues to develop into a residential community attractive to families looking to get away from the city. With access to more than 10 of North Carolina’s most spectacular beaches, it's no wonder that roughly 5,000 people like to call this place home. Topsail Beach, Wrightsville Beach, Onslow Beach, Oak Island Beach, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach are among the many well-kept and clean beaches near Hampstead.
Hampstead also has ample access to the great outdoors. The town lies just south of Holly Shelter Game Land, and there are several other wildlife and recreational parks that border the area, giving Hampstead residents year-round admission to walking trails, playgrounds and waterfront views. In addition, locals enjoy playing at the three golf courses in the area which include the Belvedere Plantation, Castle Bay and Olde Pointe Golf Course and Country Club.
Each year, locals and visitors alike look forward to annual events in and around Hampstead, like the North Carolina Spot Festival. During the last weekend in September, the community puts on an event with dedicated to “Spot” dinner plates. More than 5,000 people attend each year to try the delicious dinner plates and enjoy the local music. Other annual events include the NC Blueberry Festival, the Hops of Spring and the Coastal Carolina Air Show.
Hampstead is located in Pender County which lists its median home value at $238,000. The home values in the area have gone up more than 4.9% within the last year and are expected to increase an additional 2% on top of that. The Hampstead housing market includes homes suited to just about every lifestyle: single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, luxury waterfront properties, gated communities, retirement communities, and golf course communities.
With a solid job market, an ideal location near the larger cities of Wilmington and Jacksonville, and the ever-present opportunity for enjoying a relaxed beachfront lifestyle, the town of Hampstead will continue to be a wonderful place to live, visit and explore.
