Is it time to pack up and make your way to East Tennessee? Moving to East Tennessee comes with many wonderful benefits. We have no state income tax, low property taxes and a desirable, mild climate. But moving to East Tennessee comes with another perk that draws many people to the area — a quiet, peaceful way of life. 

If you are looking to buy a home where you can hear the birds chirp and enjoy your morning coffee without the sounds of a morning commute, you may want to look for a property outside the metropolitan Knoxville area. Let’s explore two great locations near Knoxville that provide a slower-paced, peaceful lifestyle: Maryville and Lenoir City.

Move to Maryville

Maryville residents enjoy modern amenities covered in a heavy helping of southern charm. There’s no need to venture too far from home to enjoy a delicious meal at a family-owned restaurant, sip a cold beer at a local craft brewery or buy fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers. Also, these local businesses can be found near many recognizable national brands, so you can run your weekend errands with ease. No matter where you go in Maryville, expect to exchange pleasantries and friendly smiles in this small, yet growing East Tennessee town.

If you prefer to spend your weekends surrounded by nature, Maryville offers many peaceful walking and biking trails and is located a short distance from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Spot black bears in Cades Cove or hike to one of the many beautiful lookouts or waterfalls. There’s always an opportunity for a new adventure in the mountains.

Maryville provides everything you need to live a comfortable life and offers a variety of properties. When choosing the type of property you want to buy in Maryville, we can help you evaluate your options and choose a great home. Whether you choose a modern home in town or a rustic cabin closer to the Smoky Mountains, you can enjoy a quiet lifestyle in Maryville without being too far from a larger city.

Move to Lenoir City

Lenoir City is a growing community located just outside of West Knoxville. With immaculate golf courses and easy access to lakes and rivers, Lenoir City attracts residents looking for an East Tennessee location that offers the perfect mix of relaxation and recreation. Whether you prefer to boat, fish, golf or simply sit in a hammock with a good book, you can find a home in Lenoir City that offers convenient access to your favorite pastimes. 

Lenoir City residents enjoy the ability to have their own peaceful space while being close to big-name stores and restaurants. If you can’t find your favorite store in Lenoir City, you can be in Farragut/West Knoxville in under 20 minutes.

When you search for a home in Lenoir City, you will find a lot of variety. Lenoir City provides opportunities to purchase a home on a larger parcel of property, so you can determine just how close you want to be to your neighbors.
