Hampton Estates

Hampton Estates

Their neighborhood is being developed on ten sheltered acres of beautiful land that provides in-town living with rural views of woods and the surrounding mountains. We want to sustain the small-town atmosphere we love about Boone by using the Arts & Crafts style of architecture that became common to this area just after the turn of the last century. We will use construction methods designed to minimize the impact on the environment and their houses will use the most modern materials feasible. Sidewalks, picket fences and tree lined private streets will lead past your neighbor's front porch to your new home. Drive by their park-like recreation area with towering trees on your way to your new condominium which will have great views of the surrounding mountains and one of their beautiful green spaces. Hampton Estates has easy access to work, schools, recreation areas, shopping via US 421, Bamboo Rd. and Appalcart. A foot path will lead from the neighborhood to access the Greenway Trail system that runs through Boone. The neighborhood is easy walking distance just across US 421 to the new Watauga County Park on the New River.

In a university town like Boone, there are a lot of developers that target the single student market, or seasonal renters. Hampton Estates is Boone's first gated master planned community and the first development in Boone to include restrictive covenants that exceed the town's requirements and encourage owner-occupied houses, town homes and condominiums and discourage rental occupancy.

When my family moved here they waited for four years to find a place in one of the few traditional neighborhoods in the area. The supply of existing homes was so limited that they had to build their own house and go through the stress and uncertainty of that process. They hurried to get their exterior construction done before winter set in, but the rain slowed them down, and the winter caught them. The process became more difficult in the winter. Their building materials suffered, and the ground couldn't heal from all the activity until spring.

When they were fortunate to accumulate the land for Hampton Estates, the leaders in the High Country were just coming to the realization that there was a real need for housing that could be afforded by the people who live and work in the area, people like my family. Their own experience and the obvious need for a new traditional neighborhood resulted in the development plan for Hampton Estates.

Major metropolitan areas have the benefit of low land costs, town provided sewer and water and mass transit. This attracts volume home builders who use the latest techniques and materials to provide good value for home buyers. The High Country is characterized by high land cost, the use of wells and septic systems, and custom building. This results in building costs averaging over $150.00 per square foot, excluding land, well and septic. The town of Boone has one of the few sewer and water systems in the area and provides mass transit through its Appalcart bus system. Hampton Estates is located in the Town of Boone and benefits from these systems. However, land costs remain high.

From the beginning, they made the commitment to provide a unique housing opportunity in the town of Boone. With sensitivity to the needs of the community and the environment, they worked with the town's planning department and outstanding engineers and architects to make Hampton Estates a traditional neighborhood that also incorporates the newest methods and materials. To provide the same benefits enjoyed by volume builders, they researched and selected the industry leader, R-Anell Homes, as the company to build a portion of their custom designed homes. By using a systems building process, they benefit from volume buying power for materials, and they practically eliminate the impact of weather on the home during construction. In addition, they have the added benefit of minimizing the period of time the soil is disturbed and the impact of construction on the environment.
