At 1,582 feet, the highest point on Huntsville Mountain, you will find one of the city’s most exquisite communities of luxury homes—the Ledges.
about the gorgeous luxury community
This gated community is located within southeast Huntsville city limits and consists of nearly 200 acres of residential homes. Showcasing some of Huntsville’s finest, homes in this community feature mostly 18th and 19th century architecture with some New Orleans French Quarter and Victorian themes. Each home and style is unique, featuring the most elegant of finishes. Home sizes in the neighborhoods generally range from 2,500 to 10,000 square feet. Styles range from condos, townhomes, single-family residences as well as estates.
As you drive through the tree-lined streets or walk along the welcoming sidewalks, you will see that the community truly has an old fashioned, small-town charm. Residents of the gated community enjoy breathtaking views of the Tennessee Valley. To the east is a view of Hampton Cove, to the west Jones Valley and downtown, and a southern view as far as the Tennessee River.
The Award-Winning Golf Course & Club
Separate from the residential community is The Ledges, a full-service, family-oriented, private golf course, and club that features an award-winning championship 18-hole course, designed by Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry.
Membership at The Ledges golf course and club is open to all— both residents and non-residents. The 36,000 square foot English Tudor-style clubhouse is a two-mile drive past the guarded gate and offers amenities that include: a grand hall, two dining rooms, several bars, a ballroom, private lounges for gentlemen and ladies, a fitness center, and a pro shop. Outside there is private seating for dining near lush lawns, and around the corner, you will find the resort-style swimming pool. Known for hosting entertainment, events and weddings, the clubhouse is always ready to impress its guests.
The Ledges Golf Course Origin
The original dream to build a first-class golf course for the city of Huntsville began around 1998 as Huntsville’s economy was growing. In June 2000, the ribbon-cutting ceremony made it a reality. It took a few key investors, teams of engineers, and many years to develop the over 750-acre golf course community.
To this day, the gorgeous Huntsville community continues to exceed expectations with its beautiful homes, serene neighborhoods, and first-class golf course.
With Huntsville growing and thriving the way that it is, there is no doubt that this exquisite community will always be sought-after by both golfers and non-golfers— providing an opportunity for Huntsvillians to experience luxury living at the highest point in the city of Huntsville.
