The Ledges of Huntsville Mountain
The Ledges of Huntsville Mountain, in Huntsville, AL, is a private, gated golf community within Huntsville city limits. The community is built at the highest point in Huntsville, literally sitting at the top of Huntsville Mountain. The community was planned with 250 acres set aside for the 18-hole championship golf course and 150 acres for its generously sized home sites. Another 450 acres are kept as a belt of preserved green space around the community, to ensure that the area’s natural beauty remains unspoiled. The community is situated 1,000 feet up from the floor of the Tennessee Valley, so the views are spectacular. From one side, you see Hampton Cove’s Robert Trent Jones designed golf course, and, from the other, you look down at the Medical District, Jones Valley and downtown Huntsville.
Homes at The Ledges
The homes at The Ledges are luxurious, exquisitely designed and ideal for entertaining. Home sizes vary by neighborhood, generally ranging from 2,500 to 10,000 square feet. The average home size is about 4,000 square feet. Home types include condos and town homes, and single-family cottages, villas and estates. Most homes have between three and five bedrooms, though six bedroom, six bath models are available. Gourmet kitchens, the finest designer details and well-designed floor plans characterize all the homes in The Ledges. All of the homes have garages that fit two or three cars.
The community was designed by the same company that created Celebration, the Disney-owned planned community on the Florida coast. The homes adhere to a historically correct, traditional architectural style template, with columns, porticoes, wide front porches and plenty of old-fashioned charm. Sidewalks and rear access garages give the neighborhoods a pedestrian-friendly, small-town feel. Each home is different; some evoke the old South or colonial New England, and others the New Orleans French Quarter and quaint Victorians. The community offers secluded, rural living, with tree-lined streets and expansive views.
Things to do at The Ledges
Each homeowner at The Ledges receives a membership to the golf club and recreation facilities. The golf course is probably the community’s primary attraction, bringing in many avid golfers. The course is par 71 with a regulation length and is considered difficult. Its mountaintop location creates excellent views and quite a few interesting challenges. The community’s clubhouse is a grand space of more than 36,000 square feet, built in an elegant English Tudor style. It offers members and residents a “great hall”, private lounges for gentlemen and ladies, two dining rooms, several bars, a ballroom and a pro shop. Outdoor seating is available for dining near the formal gardens.
Next to the clubhouse you will find the community pool and tennis courts. The community’s fitness center is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Jogging and hiking trails wind all through the neighborhood.

We weren’t looking to buy a house, but I’m glad we came to Amanda Howard when we did. Whitney Stringer was a perfect fit for us! She listened to our concerns, answered our questions, and was patient and very professional. We looked at the house on 6/16, put in an offer on 6/17, and closed on 7/27. Everything went smoothly (and quickly). If we ever have to sell or buy again, we’d definitely go through AHRE!
I worked with AHRE. We would HIGHLY recommend anyone who is looking to buy a home to go through AHRE. The best real estate company anyone could ever ask for. They will go above and beyond call of duty. Thank you AHRE!!!!!!!
The home buying process is very overwhelming and confusing with all of the paperwork that is constantly needing to be approved and signed. Glinda, with Amanda Howard Real Estate, made this process as simple as she could and the e-signing helped a lot! As a first time home buyer, I’m very pleased with my experience.
Amanda Howard real Estate was awesome, it was a quick process for me cause I already knew what I want. For areas that I needed help with, they had the solution. Thank you!!
I’ve never felt more taken care of in the process of selling my house. Thanks Michelle. You are a rose among real estate thorns! I can’t express my gratitude with words to describe how you’ve helped me with closing a chapter in my life with the sale of my late fathers house. Thank you.
We worked with Natalie, a buyer specialist. She was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. She was laid back while showing us homes (patient with our 4 year old sons!), and answered all questions. She was easy to work with and met all our needs. She assisted in making the buying process as easy as possible. Everything went smoothly from initially contacting her to closing on our family home.
Our agent (Whitney Stringer) was great! She was easy to work with and only showed us homes that we were interested in seeing. She even rearranged her weekend schedule to meet us when we came in from out of town to look at homes on short notice. She was professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. Because of here we would gladly work with Amanda Howard again in the future.
I was very impressed with the knowledge and experience from Clair Lee, my realtor, from Amanda Howard Realty. I have listed two homes with this company and have been more than satisfied with the results. They are the only company that I have dealt with in the last 20 years that has total feedback daily on the market and personal feedback on the homes that I had listed. I would definitely recommend this company highly.
Absolutely loved working with this amazing team! Whitney was so helpful in helping us find our home and a genuine person. Great experience all around 😉
Excellent experience all the way around and sold our house quicker than we ever imagined!
