Welcome to Hampstead
Peaceful, family-friendly community with an affluent, executive history and large homes
Only 445 acres, Hampstead is a small treasure of a town that serves as a peaceful and rural haven away from the busy parts of Montreal. Nicknamed the “Garden City,” residents walk daily among an abundance of lush green space and canopied streets within an urban environment. The beloved on-island suburb is just the right size, being quaint enough that the community is cozy and close-knit but just large enough to offer spacious living perks and features. Once a golf course, the neighborhood now comprises gorgeous homes that sit atop large lots boasting roomy yards and plenty of living and play space, both inside and out. Hampstead was created with families in mind - its roads designed with curves to slow down traffic and create an intimate, unique landscape. Perfect for couples and families of all sizes looking to plant roots, Hampstead is a wonderful and enchanting place to begin a new chapter in life.

People & Lifestyle
With no retail shops within the municipal boundaries, Hampstead is a fully residential community. The nook-of-a-community offers safe streets and a small-town setting, which has taken care to maintain its distinct character and avoid commercial expansion and zoning. The suburb draws families from all over the area for its space and community factor. The municipality is almost completely composed of single-family residences with only a few apartment buildings, duplexes, and triplexes on Côte-Saint-Luc Road and a handful of other roads. Around the neighborhood, you’ll find residents playing or getting active in the local parks and recreational areas. No matter where they are, residents create close bonds that are cherished forever. Accessible by STM bus lines, you can get to where you need to go from Hampstead via public transportation or car.
