Blossomwood Caravan

Wednesday is Caravan Day at Van Valkenburgh and Wilkinson, when the team walks through newly listed homes as a group to review features and advantages of each property.  We meet at each of the homes on caravan to discuss ways to best showcase the property to potential buyers.  This is a great way for the listing agent to get a variety of expert thoughts on important issues such as pricing, features to highlight, and room staging.

All four homes on a recent caravan were in the popular Blossomwood neighborhood. Here is a peek at what we saw:

1013 Hermitage Avenue

This pristine 1930s-era Blossomwood bungalow is loaded with features, charm, and an arts-and-crafts authenticity rare in this neighborhood, most of which was built in the mid-20th century.  The team was impressed by the beauty and condition of the home and its grounds, as well as the livable floor plan and central location.  For more information, click here to see the listing page or contact Julie Lockwood at 256-797-4028 or

This beautiful 1930s bungalow has been thoroughly redone and updated, but with great respect for the period architecture and ambiance. The result is a very special home with incredible amenities and comforts and a great location.


The kitchen is beautiful, inviting, and spacious–a natural gathering place for family and friends.

1515 Hermitage Avenue

This Blossomwood 3BR/2BA cottage is larger than it looks from the charming front view, and has some surprising features in a home of this size and era, including 2 walk-in closets(!), a wrap-around deck overlooking the back yard, and a wood-burning fireplace.  The team especially liked the updated master bath, plentiful windows, and hardwood floors.  For more information, click here to see the listing page or contact Julie Lockwood at 256-797-4028 or

1414 Dale Circle

Over the years, Dale Circle has become one of Blossomwood’s most popular streets. Just steps from the neighborhood pool and a very short walk to the elementary school, this location has been an idyllic childhood setting for generations of families.  This 4BR/2.75BA home represents a rare opportunity to own a home on this circle.  The team liked the home’s spacious, open floor plan and features such as a built-in wet bar, a detached workshop with power, and the isolated private bedroom with bath that currently serves as a music studio but could also be a wonderful master bedroom.  For more information, click here to see the listing page or contact Leigh Bee at 256-337-9101 or at

1313 Big Cove Road

This spacious, well laid-out home has loads of storage and built-ins as well as two beautifully updated bathrooms, including the master. The kitchen has impressive amenities and a sunny eating area just adjacent.  The team was especially wowed by the fantastic deck overlooking the big back yard, and the roomy shaded patio just below.  Outdoor fun and entertaining will be a huge benefit for the lucky buyers of this home.  For more information, click here to see the listing page or contact Julie Lockwood at 256-797-4028 or
