Goodall Homes has been named the exclusive, single-family home builder for more than 400 houses at Hays Farm, it was announced Tuesday.
Goodall is a Clayton Properties Group builder and a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary. Hays Farm is a master planned community in South Huntsville, just minutes from downtown Huntsville and adjacent to Redstone Arsenal with direct access through Gate 3.
Hays Farm features 440 single-family homes, 600 multi-family units, a premier office park, a 9.5-acre urban park surrounded by retail, a 440-acre nature preserve, 8 miles of hard surface greenway, and a Publix anchored grocery center. The outdoor amenities, combined with the convenience of nearby retail, creates an extraordinary living setting.
“For more than 30 years Goodall Homes has built a legacy of quality and value,” said John Hays, developer and owner of the master-planned community. “Their commitment to excellence combined with their unmatched ability to buildout a development of this scale makes them a natural fit for Hays Farm.”
Hays Farm has been in the Hays Family since 1906. The land has been cultivated for generations and now the 850 acres of forests, fields, and springs will serve the families of South Huntsville for generations to come.
“With its more than 400 acres of greens space and miles of trails, Hays Farm will be a development like no other in the greater Huntsville area,” says Goodall Homes President and founder Bob Goodall. “In the next few years, we look forward to building beautiful homes in Hays Farm’s three distinct neighborhoods, homes where families come together and memories are made. Together Hays Farm and Goodall Homes will introduce a balance of living unrivaled in North Alabama.”
With an estimated timeframe of three to five years, Goodall Homes will be constructing homes in Hays Farm’s three neighborhoods; The Forge, The Forest, and The Fields, offering a variety of square footage, layout, and price range options. According to a recent HAAR report, housing inventory continues to register at historic lows in Huntsville.
“The partnership between Hays Farm and Goodall Homes will bring more housing options to existing South Huntsville residents and new families moving to the area,” said Bekah Schmidt, executive director of the South Huntsville Main Business Association. “The subdivisions at Hays Farm have been the most anticipated new construction in the greater Huntsville area.
“This is a buyer’s last opportunity to be a part of a large-scale master planned community in the Grissom High School district.”
