Hampstead Real Estate

Hampstead is Pender County’s most populated area despite its status as an unincorporated community. This coastal town is nestled between two major coastal cities, Jacksonville and Wilmington, and adjacent to the beautiful beaches of Topsail Beach. Holding on to it’s strong fishing culture, Hampstead is proudly named the “Seafood Capital of the Carolinas”.


There are ample ways to stay connected within the Hampstead community.  Whether you are hitting the links on one of the four golf courses in the area: North Shore Country Club, Castle Bay Golf Course, Olde Pointe Golf and Country Club, and Belvedere Country Club.  Catching some sun, reeling in a large fish off the Hampstead Marina. Or boating to the nearby islands of Topsail, Figure Eight Island, or Wrightsville Beach.   There is always a fun time to be had in Hampstead, North Carolina.  


Hampstead’s dining holds onto the small coastal charm that is evident throughout the city.  Whether you prefer a juicy burger and true southern cooking of The Sawmill Grill, or the famous tacos and burritos at Burrito Shak, you can’t go wrong.  Enjoy a meal overlooking the roaring waves or calm waterway at the countless waterfront restaurants nearby.  The Sailfish at Marsh Creek Marine in Scott’s Hill, or Daddy Mac’s Beach Grille in Topsail Beach.

Housing options in the area include picturesque locations near waterways, golf courses, and rural settings.  It is not hard to find a beautiful natural coastal setting to call home in Hampstead. Neighborhoods such as Belvedere Plantation, Tidewater Landing, and Pecan Grove Plantation show how life in a small town doesn’t have to mean giving up luxury amenities.   There are many new construction neighborhoods in Hampstead that give home owners the opportunity to build a home that is not only personalized, but never lived in.
