The Village of Providence
Massive, cookie cutter suburban developments of the late 20th century are becoming a thing of the past. People today crave connection, community, and diversity. These desires have given birth to a new movement in urban and suburban planning that features walkable street plans, diverse architectural styles, and a wide choice of retail businesses and municipal offices situated along a central main street. Seaside, Florida is famous for being one of the first master-planned communities to embrace this new philosophy of livable neighborhoods, but did you know that Huntsville has its own “new urban” village?
In fact, the Village of Providence, about 20 minutes from downtown Huntsville, was founded in 2002 by the same architectural firm that planned Seaside. It offers a variety of single-family homes, condominiums, and apartments in a wide range of old-world architectural styles: Federal, Italianate, Greek Revival, Arts and Crafts, and traditional Southern.
Live here and say goodbye to bustle! Leave your car in the garage and walk down to Main Street to grab a pizza with friends at the Mellow Mushroom, shop for a gift for a neighbor, or pick up fresh supplies for dinner at the farmers’ market on the village green. Jog over to the rec center for a quick swim. Disappear with your fishing rod into the woods along Indian Creek. Or just sit by the fireplace in the grand parlor of the Meeting House and soak in the atmosphere. New without the glitz and old without the age, Providence is the perfect destination for homeowners who are seeking an authentic living experience that respects both tradition and progress.
