"Westmoreland: The Old & New Of Knoxville's Beautiful Neighborhoods"

The Westmoreland neighborhood is located just off of Westland Drive and just west of Northshore Drive. This neighborhood consists of two primary areas known as the Old Westmoreland and the New Westmoreland. The Old Westmoreland is the area north of the eastern end of Westland Drive, while the New Westmoreland is the area south on Westland Drive. Westmoreland can be easily accessed by either Interstate 40, Interstate 140, Kingston Pike, or Northshore Drive.

The Westmoreland neighborhood is also the neighborhood in which Mayor Bill Haslam calls his home and is where the elite Cherokee County Club can be found. As its name implies, the Old Westmoreland section contains the oldest and some of the grandest homes in the neighborhood. Though there are some newer homes here, the majority of the homes were built from about the 1920s to the 1980s. The homes in New Westmoreland are newer with the majority of them being less than twenty years old.

Regardless of their age, these homes are always quite large with the average square footage of just above 4000. Most of the homes are traditional two story affairs, but there are also some cottage style and Mediterranean influenced homes sprinkled throughout the older section. The lots tend to be pretty big and there are lots of mature trees everywhere.

Westmoreland is in a great central location for shopping. Residents can head up Westland to do some mall shopping at West Town Mall or they can go up Lyon’s View Pike to shop at the many boutiques located in the District at Bearden. If they just need to do some grocery shopping or stop by the hardware store, then residents can drive a little ways south down Northshore to the Rocky Hill area, where there are several small, locally owned shops.
