Managing Real Estate Broker with Harb DeSa Realty PA# AB066822 | TN# 344201

OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY 9/17 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.

North Knoxville is the area north of Knoxville’s downtown. Major roadways abutting North Knoxville include Broadway (US-441), Tazewell Pike (TN-331), Clinton Highway (US-25W), and Washington Pike. Neighborhoods in North Knoxville include Old North Knoxville, Inskip-Norwood, Oakwood-Lincoln Park, Fountain City, Fourth and Gill, Whittle Springs, and North Hills. Sharp’s Ridge, which is seven miles long, goes through North Knoxville.

We love North Knoxville. We bought the home at 2016 Cecil Avenue and renovated it. We decided to put it on the market to sell it. Yes, we are the listing agents and the owners.

Check out this 3D home tour!

And take a look at this video with drone footage.

Below is a description of the home.

Beautifully updated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom ranch with new windows, new HVAC, new electric panel, refinished hardwood floors, huge deck, gazebo, wide driveway, and carport. You will love the split bedroom design, with the open concept kitchen/living/dining room bringing people together. Cooking will be pure joy in the modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The master bathroom has a huge walk-in closet with built-in shelves and a laundry area with brand new washer and dryer. Nestled in the heart of Old North Knoxville, this home is in one of the most charming neighborhoods, replete with sidewalks and tree-lined streets. The home is minutes to breweries, coffee shops, bakeries, and food trucks in Happy Holler. Listing agents are the owners.

The commanding master bedroom serves as a romantic and relaxing oasis at the end of each fruitful day. The master bedroom opens directly to the sprawling deck so you can enjoy an early morning coffee or twilight beverage.

Go for a morning jog or late afternoon stroll along the sidewalks that run on both sides of the street. Grill your delicacies on the newly stained deck while family and friends toss a football or kick a soccer ball in the flat backyard. Hold intimate conversations in the gazebo while being cooled by the overhead fan.

An entertainer's dream, there is plenty of on- and off-street parking in front of and alongside this craftsman-style home, with additional parking in the rear. The concrete driveway allows for side by side parking, and the huge carport protects at least two vehicles from the elements. A paved alley in the rear makes coming and going simple. The backyard could easily be enclosed with a fence and gate, or left open for parking large vehicles or for the delivery of a shed.

Set up a rocking chair under the covered front porch and while away the hours while rain or snow falls softly a few feet away. Access the back deck via the door from the kitchen or from the master bedroom. Work on your tan while on the deck, or stay out of the sun under the shade of the gazebo.

In September 2022, the windows by Sterling Window Systems were installed; the original oak hardwood floors were professionally refinished; a brand new 200-amp electric panel was professionally installed along with many new lights, outlets, and switches; multiple plumbing updates were professionally done; much of the home was repainted and the deck was stained; some new shingles were professionally installed; and multiple additional updates were performed. The Oxbox condenser unit and air handler were installed in January 2022. The bathrooms were updated within the past year, with additional updates occurring in September 2022.

All appliances are included. Brand new Insignia washer and electric dryer from Best Buy. The kitchen includes an Amana electric cooktop, over-the-range microwave, GE dishwasher, and Maytag side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. There is a gas line behind the stove, which could accommodate someone who prefers to cook with gas. An ADT alarm system was installed by the prior owner.

This Northwest-facing home is ideally located only a few blocks from Broadway (US-441). It takes just 2-3 minutes to drive to I-40. Market Square and the University of Tennessee are likewise just minutes away. Homebuyers and landlords will appreciate this property. Make it yours today.
