This week Neighborhood of the Week heads out Northshore way to take another look at a cozy little ’hood with an fancy sounding name: Tierra Verde.

Located just west of the Pellissippi Parkway off the north side of Northshore Drive,  Tierra Verde was developed mostly during the 1970s and 80s, although there is a small newer section and there are some newer homes sprinkled throughout the neighborhood.

While Tierra Verde does contain some very typical, traditional looking homes — basement ranchers and two storys –, what makes it unique are its many contemporary style homes, like the one seen above.  Homes tend to be on the large side and the lots aren’t small either.

Tierra Verde is also located in a pretty sweet spot. There’s plenty of shopping and dining just east of the Pellissippi Parkway, and by jumping on the Parkway, residents are only a relatively short drive away from both Farragut and downtown. And outdoor enthusiasts will have plenty to do with Carl Cowan Park right across Northshore and several Knox County parks nearby, including  Admiral Farragut ParkConcord Park, The Cove at Concord and more.

So if you’re looking for a contempary pad out west that’s convenient to lots of shopping and parks, but is still an easy commute in to campus or downtown, why not check out Tierra Verde.
