Finding the perfect place in Knoxville to call home can be tough, but with the help of a Knoxville Realtor that has market knowledge of each specific area within Knoxville, the home buying process isn’t as daunting. Looking for a central location with fantastic neighborhoods, great shopping and a ton of restaurants? Bearden may be the perfect place in Knoxville to start looking for a new house.

Dotted along Kingston Pike, the main road which runs through Bearden, you see commercial shopping plazas and historical homes nestled in beautiful neighborhoods.

Located between Downtown Knoxville and West Knoxville is Sequoyah Hills, one of Knoxville’s first suburbs and most desirable residential communities. This well-known neighborhood contains breathtaking mid-20th century residential architecture as well as newly-built homes. The beautiful parks and trails within the Sequoyah Hills area make it a perfect choice for families or individuals who want a central location with a high walkability score.

Bearden also offers a wide variety of retail and the like. You can find trendy local boutiques like Est8te and Elyse Wild to satisfy your unique style as well as bigger brands such as Madewell, Free People and Lululemon all of which are located along Kingston Pike. Looking for a great salon? Try grow Knoxville (who was voted best salon the last three years). Just beyond Bearden is one of Knoxville’s largest shopping destinations, West Town Mall.

In addition to shopping, Bearden also has many restaurants for every craving. Whether you want to shop at Whole Foods or Trader Joes and cook a meal at home or eat out, Bearden has it all! Some of my favorite places to grab lunch or dinner in Bearden are Sticky Rice Cafe, Chez Guevara and Kitchen 919.

An additional benefit to buying a home in Bearden is the fact that it’s less than a 15-minute commute to downtown Knoxville!

As of 2019, the average home value in this area is $300,201 which is an increase of 5.5% from
this past year!

Bearden residents are in close proximity to many private school options, or Bearden families can attend Knox County Schools.

With over 15 years of experience as a Knoxville Realtor, I understand the benefits of each zip code within the Knoxville real estate market. Need ideas about which location is the best fit for you? Let’s get started.
