Simple Life: The Hamlet

Value Living Life Over Maintaining Things

The Hamlet, created and operated by Simple Life, is a small cottage home community with private amenities. You own your home, and avoid the cost and burden of land ownership, with flexible lifestyle and home site lease packages designed to give you the freedom to live more life.
We offer a collection of 1 & 2 bedroom small cottages that can be customized to meet individual needs, and we maintain and operate our amenity-rich community to the highest standards.
Your Simple Life move-in experience will be completely turnkey. Your personal homesite will have a two-care driveway and landscaping. Your home itself will include gutters, stairs, landing, all major appliances, and will be connected to tested and working city sewer, running water, electricity, cable, heating, and air conditioning.

Community Amenities

Simple Life maintains and professionally manages active lifestyle amenities for the exclusive use of all our residents. Examples of these include a classic swimming pool, pavilion with grill, clubhouse, fitness room, yoga room, bocce ball court, dog park, big screen TV for special events, common green spaces, fishing ponds, community garden, and firepit. We also provide professionally managed and maintained events including yoga/fitness classes, organized crafts/games, group outings, and activities.

Predictable Monthly Costs

You have better things to do than balance utility, internet, taxes, and trash bills. We cover it all in your one monthly Lifestyle Fee. When fees increase, they are very modest, and you know well in advance. No surprises.

Less Maintenance. More Life.

Leave the yard maintenance to us. We take care of front and back yard upkeep plus all the common areas and community landscaping while you take care of living a healthy rewarding life.

What is Simple Life?

Simple Life creates and operates small cottage home communities throughout the Southeastern US with private amenities for people who value living life over maintaining things. We provide lifestyle community amenities and a collection of 1 and 2-bedroom small cottages for sale that can be customized to meet individual needs, and we maintain and operate our communities to the highest standards.

In a Simple Life community, you own your home, and avoid the cost and burden of land ownership, with flexible lifestyle and homesite lease packages designed to give you the freedom to live more of life. Unlike restrictive land leases, Simple Life offers fully flexible land leases. Your land lease ends when you sell your home – on your own terms.

Our Story

Our company founders, The Resource Group, have been in land development and homebuilding for over 20 years. In 2015 they realized there was a significant gap in options for affordable, low maintenance homes for people wanting an amenity-rich community lifestyle. They went to work to conceptualize and develop a new kind of housing choice, partly fueled by the tiny home movement and demand for smaller, more efficient living without sacrificing home features and an active lifestyle. With these ingredients and inspiration, Simple Life was born.

Right-Sized Housing

They started by developing 2,500 square foot home sites for small cottage homes of 399-500 square feet. They partnered with facility-focused home builders of high-quality homes with smaller footprints. Modern factory-built housing provided craftsman-quality construction and beautiful finishes, adhered to national building codes, and avoided costly weather delays, material waste, and contractor fees.

They designed and developed luxury shared community amenities including classic and rustic swimming pools, fitness spaces and yoga studios, clubhouses, sports courts, dog parks, walking trails, green spaces, community gardens, and water features to create the perfect balance of private and shared space.

Simply put, today Simple Life uses lower impact, less costly development to build, own, operate and expand small cottage communities and provide low maintenance amenity-rich living at a lower overall cost.
