"The long road to..."

Northshore Drive ends near Papermill Dr, and goes to Lenior City. That is a long road to cover in one review. Some things can be said about the entire length of road. That is they are beautiful houses, expensive but gorgeous. There is a lot of leafy areas that are enjoyable to drive along. You can spend a good while on this road and see a variety of landscapes. These include the middle class areas near Papermill or the really expensive homes in Farragut. Wherever you are on Northshore, it is not a terrible jaunt over to Kingston Pike.

The side roads and quick cut throughs allow some of the best shopping and restaurants in Knoxville to be accessible. Unfortunately, some of the areas along this road can become heavily congested, especially during rush hours. As I said before, the cost of living can be quite up there. Some areas are fine and offer great homes, but you will also find some ritzy areas. Overall, if you can afford the homes you are probably doing pretty well for yourself. I would recommend these homes to anyone who can afford them.
