Westmoreland is an upscale residential subdivision of Knoxville, located just seven minutes away from the heart of the city. The Westmoreland that people know today is actually a conglomeration of several neighborhoods – the historic Westmoreland Heights (aka Old Westmoreland), Westmoreland Estates, Westmoreland Hills, Sherwood Oaks and Court of Coventry.
There are many wonderful things going for this picturesque, park-like community. Its central location is one of its best features, offering convenient access to the area’s numerous outdoor and urban destinations, as well as the I-75 and I-40.
Visitors are welcomed by the Tudor Revival style Waterwheel and Gatepost, which was built in 1923 by the area’s earliest property owners to provide water and electricity in the neighborhood. Included in the National Register of Historic Places in 2013, the waterwheel/gatepost now serves as Westmoreland’s most defining feature, providing a preview of the neighborhood’s unique charm.
