Owens Cross Roads Homes for Sale

Not sure where Hampton Cove ends, and Owens Cross Roads begins?  Don’t worry, we will fill in the gaps.  Owens Cross Roads was the original small town “over the mountain” from Huntsville before the master-planned community of Hampton Cove broke ground in the early 90’s.  That same small town exists today and is home to some of our favorite locally owned restaurants in the area (see below).  It is also the post office with the zip code 35763 which serves the entire area that can be called Mountain Cove, Big Cove, Hampton Cove or Owens Cross Roads. 

If you live in the actual town of Owens Cross Roads, your home will be zoned for Madison County Schools with pre-K through 6th grade attending Owens Cross Roads Elementary School and 7th-12th at New Hope.  However, a large part of 35763 is zoned for Huntsville city including most of the new developments.  The homes on the west side of Highway 431 attend Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School, while those on the east side are zoned for Hampton Cove Elementary.  Both of these 2 elementary schools come together at Hampton Cove Middle and continue on to Huntsville High

Other major differences?  Living in “real” Owens Cross Roads feels more rural.  You are likely to encounter quaint older homes on large lots or even acreage.  Most of the Mountain Cove/Big Cove neighborhoods date from the 90’s or 2000’s with just a couple of pockets of older homes.  These newer developments primarily straddle Taylor Road and Old Big Cove Road.  Most offer a neighborhood pool, club house, and some play areas for children.  With the development of the Taylor Road/Old Big Cove corridor has come extensive sidewalks making it easy to walk between subdivisions, to school at GSES and even to the Walmart shopping center.    Coming in 2020, the City of Huntsville will open a new recreation center on Taylor Road.

Great locally owned Owens Cross Roads restaurants:

Grandmother’s House offers Southern comfort food in a cozy converted home environment.  Take time to visit with the owners and staff (many of whom are kin) to hear great stories about the 7 generations who were raised on this family farm.

Perfect Timing Bar & Grill is truly a neighborhood institution.  With ping pong, corn hole, and plenty of outdoor seating families of all ages love hanging out at this laid-back grill.  And as an OCR resident, Katie definitely agrees with their marquee – Best Cheeseburger in Huntsville.
