Densely forested riverbank community with a deceptively central location.
Kelsey Forest is the name popularly used for the lovely luxury homes located along the densely wooded stretch of Kelsey Lane and its connecting streets in southwest Knoxville. This serene and secluded community meanders through the forest to the northern bank of the Tennessee River.

Homes enjoy an all-encompassing natural setting that feels a world away from the bustle of the inner city. It’s a calm and soothing setting that offers the perfect escape from the stress of big city life.


Hidden within Kelsey Forest’s thick tree coverage are stunning luxury homes exhibiting unique architectural styles. These wonderful homes lie among forest clearings on lots that span multiple acres. Their beautiful exteriors are tastefully framed by the surrounding trees and lakefront. Large windows fill the homes with light and provide majestic views across the river and out to the surrounding mountains. Open floorplans make these spacious properties the perfect place for entertaining guests.

Ingenious architectural elements take advantage of Kelsey Forest’s magnificent views, with wraparound porches on multiple levels of some homes. Other properties allow the pristine natural surroundings to dominate, with lakefront cabins exuding an old-world rustic charm. Some have been designed with breathtaking modern design, with almost-entirely glass facades providing unobstructed views of the vast surroundings.


With spacious lots and large uninterrupted stretches of forest between them, each of Kelsey Forest’s properties enjoys a sense of being completely isolated within an unbroken natural setting.

However, this quiet community is deceptively well-connected, with Downtown Knoxville less than thirty minutes away via Northside Drive or I-40. Pellissippi Parkway runs alongside Kelsey Forest, allowing residents to reach the various shopping and dining options of Northshore Town Center in under ten minutes.

The river flows directly past the community’s most sought-after homes. These waterfront properties provide a truly magical setting that completely washes away the stresses of modern life.

Homes in Kelsey Forest are also a short drive away from some beautiful lakefront parks like Concord Park, which has an excellent 3-par golf course and a mix of amenities including an asphalt skate park.
