"Country living near a big city"

Byington Solway is a large winding road that goes through most of northwest Knoxville. It connects the Karns area to the rest of Knoxville. It offers a rural side to Knoxville, with plenty of neighborhoods and agriculture. Karns school system is one of the best in Knoxville, and has one of the best highschoools in the area. Overall, the cost of living is very affordable, compared to west Knoxville, or Farragut and still has a decent proximity to the area. Byington Solway has a lot of peaceful areas and not a lot of traffic.

Of course, there are cons to be had. There is next to no nightlife, and eating out is a bit of a joke. However, it is in close proximity to access roads that can lead to Turkey Creek or other main stream areas. Also, Hardin Valley has been building up recently and offers good stores that meet most needs of the area. I would recommend this area for couples who are starting out on their own, families and retirees. The area is very nice and quiet, if this is the life you are after, welcome home. It is one of the greener, cleaner areas of Knoxville.
