The Preserve at Clinch River is located just west of Knoxville and Oak Ridge.
This lake front property lies between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Cumberland Mountains to the west. The community is convenient to Interstate 40 and Interstate 75, the University of Tennessee, Turkey Creek Shopping Complex, McGhee Tyson Airport and several state / national parks.
The Preserve properties have approximately 5 miles of shoreline on the scenic Clinch River.

In fact, you can travel all the way to the Gulf of Mexico from the waters of the Clinch River. The community offers a boat launch ramp, small marina and several private coves. Just a few miles downstream is Watts Bar Lake, the navigable 39,000 acre lake which offers an additional 722 miles of shoreline.
The Preserve at Clinch River is located within the city limits of the nationally respected community of Oak Ridge. Highly regarded public and private schools are available to the young people in Oak Ridge. And, high school graduates are guaranteed free tuition to Tennessee’s community and technical colleges under the “Tennessee Promise guarantee” .Additionally, qualified students may be eligible for the Tennessee HOPE Scholarship.
The initial plans projected scenic walking trails, a wellness center with fitness equipment and a lap pool, tennis courts, landscaped pool complex with water slide, horseshoe pits, playground equipment, sport fields, and 100 acres of parks. The original plan was for “a nostalgic riverfront community featuring classic home styles of the 30s, 40s, and 50s built around a traditional Towne Center”.
Quaint styling of traditional neighborhoods features craftsman homes, cottage homes, patio homes and custom homes in classic colors of earlier decades. Refreshing blend of broad front porches, tree lined lanes, private rear accessed garages, big windows, and random roof lines are distinctive to the homes within the Preserve at Clinch River.
