Greystone Subdivision homes for sale in Hoover Alabama are part of my life experience. My familiarity and involvement go all the way back to the early 1990’s. When Greystone Country Club Founders Course opened in 1991, my family was one of the first to move into this suburb of Birmingham, Alabama and join the Golf Club. In Greystone Alabama, my father built some of the most beautiful homes on the golf course, and my mother and I did the interior design for many of these homes for sale. As your Realtor® in the neighborhoods for Greystone Subdivision homes for sale Hoover Alabama, it is possible that I might sell a home to you that I also helped design.
Driving through Greystone Alabama you will find the subdivision has aged very gracefully, with estate sized homes on beautifully manicured lawns meandering around the two golf courses of Founders and Legacy.
The two courses of Greystone Golf and Country Club are:
- Greystone Founders Course
- Greystone Legacy Course
Each year the club is host to the Regions Tradition Golf Tournament. As a charity event, this is a major community highlight for the City of Hoover. There are always major celebrities in attendance.
Interesting Facts About the Area
In 2020, Alabama was the 8th most “moved to” state nationwide, so our state is a popular place to move.
This is a neighborhood that does not have a tract home feel. In fact, new custom homes are still being built on scattered lots. If you might be interested in a new home, there are still several lots available throughout the subdivision, and they have been included in the property search.
Currently, homes in the neighborhoods range from the $250,000 to about $4,000,000.
Most of the larger and more expensive homes can be found inside the gates of the two golf course areas. The exception to this would be homes for sale on Greystone Crest. The Crest has a separate gate atop a mountain, with incredible views from both sides of the ridge. This sector is located off of Hugh Daniels Drive.
For those who prefer less upkeep, there is a nice mix of garden homes, and homes on smaller lots. Many of the garden homes are also located in gated neighborhoods.
Alternatively, the median subdivision home price for listed properties is about $760,000, which would get you a spacious 4 or 5 bedroom home with a nice size yard, and perhaps, a private pool.
If looking under the “schools” tab, you can find that award winning Hoover public schools are zoned for Greystone, but there are also many nearby private options.
