Hampstead Real Estate & Area Information

Search for homes for sale in Hampstead and learn about what makes this hamlet such a popular destination for those seeking the North Carolina coastal lifestyle.

Old timers remember Hampstead as the place where you could once buy that unique carnivorous plant, the Venus flytrap. It was also (and still is) a great spot to get fresh fish, oysters and shrimp. In fact, for locals, the little hamlet of Hampstead is so synonymous with one type of fall fish, the spot to be exact, that the NC Spot Festival has been going strong here for over 50 years.

The central crossroads of town is in Pender county where U.S. Highway 17 and Hwy 210 meet. This is also the commercial hub since several shopping areas, including a strip center with a grocery store and drug store, surround it. These days Hampstead is often considered a bedroom community of Wilmington. However, it definitely has its own character. It experienced explosive growth in the 1990s and is now home to nearly 5,000 residents. There are several lovely neighborhoods, both old and new. Many feature home sites that are on heavily wooded private lots. Numerous Hampstead residents enjoy water views or water access. 

A big feather in Hampstead's cap is the solid reputation its school system has gained within the last 10 years. It has three elementary schools, one middle and one high school, which is right next to the local library. Hampstead greatly appeals to all ages, because for working families and professionals it is an easy commute into the Port City. Retirees from across the country have also discovered its charms thanks to a low cost of living and three exceptional golf course communities!
