About The Timbers

      Welcome to a new, gated community in the Powell area of North Knoxville.  On a 39 acre, secluded area off Hurst Lane, this development will be limited to a total of 4 homes.  Three lots are available ranging from 3.4 to just under 5 acres with underground utilities.  These estate size lots are surrounded by old growth forest with towering majestic oak and hickory trees.  Homes will be restricted to two stories of no less than 4000 square feet.  Designed for homeowners interested in a restricted, private community, The Timbers is away from the hustle and bustle of city life.  Although close to developing areas along Emory road at I-75 in the Powell community, West Knoxville shopping and Downtown Knoxville are a mere 15-20 minute drive.


      Our home will be located in a central area of The Timbers. By retaining the remainder of the property with no further sub-division, we will assure to remain a small private neighborhood.  We sincerely hope we can join together in establishing our private community.


      As native East Tennesseans, Gena and I have resided in Knoxville for over 25 years.  I practice Medicine at my office in Fountain City.  For 17 years, Gena has homeschooled our three children. Our oldest son, is currently in his first year in law school.  Studying as a junior in college, our youngest son, is working diligently toward graduate school.  Our daughter, is a talented, active freshman in high school who loves spending time with her friends.  Lastly, Macy and Meika, our two Maltipoo “children,” adore everyone’s attention.


      We eagerly anticipate the opportunity to talk with you about The Timbers.


Gena and Jeff Drinnen, M.D.
