Welcome to West Hills

The quaint neighborhood of West Hills was developed post-WWII. Its origins which stemmed from multiple parcels of farmland can still be seen today in the lush greenery that still abounds in the neighborhood. The houses in the area are primarily brick ranch-style homes while several have significant architectural heritage. The first home built in West Hills was the Hotpoint Living-Conditioned House built by renowned architect Bruce McCarty which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. McCarty’s influence also extended to all concrete, Stockton Dr. House and his designs set the tone for the neighborhood. The houses are generally brick ranchers situated on large lots, with ample front and back yards, and plenty of hardwood trees, and typically range from 1200-2200 square feet in size.
Many would say that West Hills is conveniently located in the heart of West Knoxville. The nabe is right off the major road Kingston Pike which flows from East to West through the city. Less than 1 mile from West Town Mall, multiple restaurants, and convenient access to parks and greenways this neighborhood lets you be in the middle of the city yet it feels like you are still somewhere on the VanOsdale farm.
