New Hope, Alabama is a quaint old town first established in 1829. That original hamlet, already having been listed under two different names of Cloud's Town and Vienna, was destroyed completely by fire during the Civil War and eventually reconstructed as New Hope in the early 1880's.
Since that time, New Hope has enjoyed a quiet existence with its primarily one street downtown area only 19 miles from the bigger city of Huntsville. Now serving as a community of locals and business commuters to Huntsville who still wish to enjoy a quieter suburban existence, New Hope offers plenty of variety and space for those seeking real estate. Existing homes and land for new construction is widely available and reasonably priced.
Real Estate Availability
At or below $100,000, a ranch home or split ranch with attached garage and ample lawns can be purchased as-is or for renovation. Many of these homes are perfect for small or starting families, individuals or retirees. Generally offering two to three bedrooms and one or more bathrooms and room to expand the square footage, these homes offer great potential for buyers.
The area also offers access to a multitude of quality and award-winning home builders. Both custom and pre-designed single family homes can be constructed for reasonable pricing generally ranging from $150,000 for three or more bedrooms. Of course, with all of the land available in the area, a new home may be built to suit even highly extravagant taste in sizing and cost per square footage.
The New Hope Independent School District maintains public education through two schools. New Hope Elementary School educates children from kindergarten through eighth grade. New Hope High School serves ninth through 12th grades. Nearby Huntsville provides additional educational options, if commuting is not an issue and for college-bound students.
There are approximately 2800 people who call New Hope "home." Half of the households are home to married couples, with or without children. About one third of the households have minor children under the age of eighteen living on the property. 15 percent of New Hope's residents are retirees. Altogether, New Hope is a family oriented town with peaceful surroundings in which to raise children, enjoy surrounding land and even retire.
