Property Description

Now is your chance to own a piece of history in Lindbergh Forest, one of Knoxville’s most beloved neighborhoods, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1950, this home was the personal residence of Victor McLean, Sr., the original developer/builder. After building many homes for his family (including Berry Funeral Home), he saved the best lot for last. This beautiful gem has been lovingly preserved by the current owner for over 50 years and is move-in ready for the mid-century modern enthusiast. The main level features over 3,000 sf of living space with pristine hardwood floors, wood trim and doors throughout the home and tons of natural light. The substantial primary suite offers a spacious bathroom with original green 50’s tile and exquisite fixtures.  Beautiful, immaculate stucco walls with arched doorways, hardwood trim, solid wooden doors and unique light fixtures are special details of this home.The generous living room offers plenty of space for entertaining, and includes a massive front window and a stunning stone fireplace, featuring a pink marble mantle, and an intricate, tiled hearth. The living room also incorporates a hand-molded cornice, plaster ceiling, and a lovely, domed-glass light fixture from the era. The spacious formal dining room is adjacent to the living room and includes a wooden, swinging butler’s door that leads into the 1950’s kitchen. The ample kitchen includes a breakfast area and a separate spacious pantry.
The sunroom will be a favorite place to enjoy family and social gatherings. Its unique features include a massive wall of windows facing the forest, wood paneling, the gorgeous back of the stone fireplace, and wood ceiling tiles.
Completing the main level are: two additional bedrooms with large walk-in closets, charming entry hallway with French doors leading to the porch, a study, full bathroom, built-in wood cabinets in the hallway, and a large storage room.
The basement is partially finished, with a bedroom, bathroom and workshop already in place, With an additional 2,100 square feet of open space to personalize, the possibilities are infinite for this level of the home.
Your family and friends will love relaxing on the large, covered front porch overlooking the beautiful yard with lush landscaping, the mountain stone wall and slate walkway. The backyard offers a wooded retreat and one of the original neighborhood’s lampposts.
This home is freshly painted inside and out, and the roof is only a few years old.
Victor McLean, Sr., bought the land for the Lindbergh Forest neighborhood in 1927, before the Henley Street Bridge was constructed. He began the neighborhood by building one home, moving into it, building another, selling the first, and moving into the next. He built the current Berry’s Funeral “mansion” as his family home in the mid 1930’s. After living there for many years, he realized the road would eventually become a thoroughfare. At this point, he had built more than thirty-eight homes in the neighborhood.
Mr. McLean had preserved a large area of wooded land in the neighborhood and began building his dream home at 202 Druid Drive.
This home became his crowning-glory project and his permanent family home. He poured every skill he had mastered into the superior craftsmanship and quality in this home, which was completed it in 1950. Only two families have lived in this home: Victor McLean’s family and the current owners.
The serene and iconic Lindbergh Forest Neighborhood is located minutes away from downtown, walking/biking distance to Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness-a 300 acre green space with hiking, climbing, biking, and quarry swimming, and the popular South Knoxville Waterfront.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
