"Difficult to summarize"

That is because Cate Road gradually diminishes. From W. Emory Rd, turning onto Cate Road is great. It has nice neighborhoods, very quiet, green area with some rural parts thrown in. As you get further along you come to some more subdivisions. These are brand new, still being build and look great. They are new condos, and are pristine. Once you start up the hill, there are two very gorgeous houses. And then it starts to degenerate, quickly. It becomes rural and run down very quickly.

All in all, it is an average area. It happens to be very green, safe and very quiet. It is also very affordable. Do not expect public transportation, nightlife or any restaurants. Of course, if you are willing to travel, then this area is great. When we lived here, we could get to west Knoxville in about thirty minutes. It is not a long drive, until you make it every day. Overall, it is a great area. It is clean, and has nice homes. I would recommend it for retirees, singles, couples and even children. Of course, the school systems could be improved. Claxton Elementary was a good school though.
