Tucked away in a grassy valley right down the road from Hampton Cove lies the master-planned, gated community of McMullen Cove. Many of its homes are newly constructed on large lots and varied in their architectural styles. It features its own clubhouse, pool, athletic facilities, and community events. Less densely developed than its neighbor, McMullen Cove feels spacious and authentically rural. But with its short commutes to Downtown Huntsville, the eastbound Route 72 corridor, and popular shopping centers, the best parts of upscale suburban living are at arms' length.
Nestled between two foothills of Monte Sano and soaked in sunshine, McMullen Cove can feel like a country resort. Hike in protected woodlands. Fish or kayak along the lazy, shady Flint River. Learn to ride at a nearby equestrian center. Take in a round of golf at any of the three courses on the renowned Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Take your family to the Hays Nature Preserve and learn about local wildlife. Why bother with vacation when all this is practically out your back door?
