Fairhope Real Estate
Well known for it’s charming walkable downtown steps from the bay, Fairhope is also thought of as a community consisting of a desirable school system and beauty beyond imagination. From water front to chattering neighborhoods full of children, Fairhope was named the second best small town in the south by Southern Living magazine.
The City of Fairhope was established in 1908 with around 500 residents taking responsibility for all municipal services. In the 1930s, the city became the caretaker of Fairhope’s greatest assets, the beachfront park, the park lands on the bluff above the beach, Henry George Park, Knoll Park, and the quarter-mile long pier, all gifts of the Single Tax Colony, which continues to have an active presence in Fairhope to this day.
Fairhope is truly a breathtaking vision that draws visitors from around the world who come to enjoy its natural beauty and it vibrant downtown filled with unique shops and galleries, gourmet restaurants, cozy cafes and more. With a growing community of over 16,000 residents, Fairhope is also much more than just one of the prettiest small towns in the South. The city leads the way for others with active recycling programs, a state-of-the-art water treatment system, very involved citizens, and a new Comprehensive Plan that seeks to maintain the city’s high quality of life through controlled growth and development.
