Blossomwood and the Medical District
Immediately south and southeast of Downtown Huntsville lie the Blossomwood and Medical District neighborhoods. Blossomwood, one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, features a dynamic mix of authentic homes from the Arts and Crafts and Mid-century Modern eras as well as new construction in the Craftsman Revival style. Nestled at the foot of Monte Sano State Park and the Land Trust of North Alabama, Blossomwood is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. You could easily take a hike on the mountain after lunch and then walk downtown for dinner. How many addresses can boast that kind of amenity!
The Medical District is a quiet neighborhood of pre- and post-war homes adjacent to Huntsville Hospital, the region’s best medical facility, well known for its children’s hospital and nationally-ranked cardiac center. The neighborhood’s winding, tree-lined streets are characterized by an abundance of the tidy Cape Cod cottages popular from the 1930s to the 1950s. At its center is Mayfair Park, a 9-acre sward of greenspace and sports fields reminiscent of the public commons of the colonial era. Within walking distance to Downtown, the Parkway Place Mall, and the trendy new shopping centers of Twickenham Square and Merchants’ Walk, the Medical District enjoys a pleasant balance of residential living and condensed retail.
