Here at Knoxify, we’re all about what makes Knoxville great, and a big part of what makes Knoxville great is that there are so many diverse places to live. From historic, sidewalk-lined neighborhoods full of Craftsman Bungalows and Victorians to suburban country club neighborhoods straight out of the 70s to brand new neighborhoods with gorgeous new construction, there’s a little something for everyone in our fair little town.
To showcase all these cool communities, we created the Knoxify Neighborhood Guides, a resource that brings together all kinds of information on unique and interesting Knoxville neighborhoods all in one convenient place. Whether you’re looking for info on neighborhood amenities, schools, dining or home sales prices, our Neighborhood Guides have you covered. Check back often, as new neighborhoods are always being added!

West Hills Information
West Hills is an established mid-century neighborhood with a strong sense of community. The West Hills Community Association has been going strong for over 30 years and its members continue to work to protect the the quality of life of all West Hills residents.
Living in West Hills is good if you’re into retail therapy: it’s located less than a mile from West Town Mall and all of it’s surrounding stores, including Borders, Old Navy, Kohl’s and Bed, Bath and Beyond. For grocery shopping, try the Food City off of Morrel Rd or the Bearden Kroger on Kingston Pike.
Once you’re done shopping, you can go home to play. The West Hills YMCA is located just on the edge of the West Hills neighborhood on N. Winston Rd, within walking distance of many homes. If outdoor activity is more your style, The West Hills Park is also located just off of N. Winston Rd and includes the 1.9 mile Jean Teague Greenway.
Hungry West Hills residents have no shortage of restaurant choices. Knoxville mainstays Copper Cellar and Cappucinos are close by and are always good bets. If you’re in the mood for something with a more international flair, you can try Stir Fry Cafe Tomo Japansese Restaurant.
West Hills is currently zoned for Bearden High School, Bearden Middle School and West Hills Elementary School. West Hills Elementary is actually located in the bounds of the neighborhood, right on Vanosdale Road.
