The Adell Ree Park Condominiums Homeowners Association was officially formed when the Master Deed for the development was recorded in Deed Book 2270 at page 630 in the Resister’s Office for Knox County, Tennessee, on November 28, 1997.
The mission of Adell Ree Park is to sustain life for the community with a pleasing setting, with care given to make it beautiful with plants and shrubs, with having good maintenance throughout the community and with standards as provided in the Master Deed to make certain that the community is kept in outstanding appearance.
Like other such associations, residents own their own units while the land is held in common. Maintenance of the grounds, much of the upkeep of the exteriors of units, and insurance for commonly owned structures are all paid for by the Association through monthly dues from the homeowners. The interiors of the units are the responsibility of the homeowners.
The affairs of the Association are conducted by a President, Vice President/Treasurer, Secretary and two Board Members. They are elected at the Annual Meeting of the homeowners to serve staggered terms of three years. The Annual Meeting is held in January for the homeowners to know a projected budget for the New Year and to review unfinished and new business. This allows as much input from homeowners as possible for the benefit of the Association and the daily task of maintaining the community in a state that is pleasing to its homeowners.
The goal of the Board of Adell Ree Park is to schedule routine maintenance and to fund a Reserve Account for future maintenance and emergencies such as roof replacement; repairs to the streets, sewer lines, fresh water lines, and drainage structures; and other maintenance that is necessary during a term of years of age.
The Mission Statement can be summed up as the continuation of all the above and looking toward the future to give more thoughts of giving betterment to life living in a condominium community.

About Our Neighborhood
Where does the name Adell Ree Park come from? This question was asked of the builder, Mr. Harold Byrd, as to where the name Adell Ree came from. He stated that his wife, Sharon, said “let’s name it after my mother, Adell Ree Chesney.” This is how our condominiums have the name - ADELL REE.
With the formation of the Association, this group of 41 condominiums became “home” to the residents as ownership was transferred from the builder. This was the beginning of Adell Ree Park for the purpose of giving homeowners a place where living became a life, hopefully, with much less stress, less outside maintenance, and less effort in maintaining common grounds. And this in turn would result in much less expense than owning a house and lot. The owners of the condominium units consist mainly of retired matured senior citizens.
Adell Ree Park lies within Knox County, the City of Knoxville, Tennessee. It is located off 7600 Midlebrook Pike, about one block west of where Piney Grove Church Road intersects Middlebrook Pike. It is just east of the Parkwest Church of God. The condominiums consist of 41 units and a mail pavilion. Services are provided by the City of Knoxville, Knoxville Utilities Board, Comcast, and AT&T. Fire protection is provided by the Knoxville Fire Department which has a station in West Hills about one and a half (1.5) miles from Adell Ree Park. Adell Ree Park is very convenient to many shopping areas and restaurants in West Knoxville. Also, there are several churches and schools nearby.
There are two streets into the units and common grounds - the names of the streets being Ree Way and Ester Way. The streets are privately owned by the Association and are kept in good maintenance condition. The condominiums and common grounds are also kept in good maintenance condition. An effort is made to adhere to the provisions of the Master Deed to insure the quality of the community while allowing individual homeowners the freedom of managing their units.
The Association entered into the “Neighborhood Watch Program” in 2008 with the erection of an official sign. A Watch Coordinator and six Block Captains assist in helping to give security to the complex. The Knoxville Police Department gives a brief program annually to be on guard and to watch for anything that might not seem normal and also provides information to the Association and homeowners as to crimes that are occurring in the surrounding area. It is the hope of the Association to continue having these combined efforts to ensure a safe place to live!
The 41 condominiums consist of units having two or three bedrooms, kitchen, dinning/living room, laundry room, walk-in closets, and some with screen porches or glassed as a sun room. The two bedrooms have two full size baths and the three bedrooms have three full size baths. The size of square footage varies as to the unit - l,600 to l,900 square feet. Units are in buildings of two, three, or four condominiums. Historically, when a unit becomes available for sale, it does not remain on the market very long.
A very good quality of the Association is that the homeowners are proud owners and maintain the units in this respect with care being given that might not be a quality in some other condominium developments. The Board of Adell Ree Park and the homeowners are quite proud and very appreciative that the units are being kept in utmost setting of care according to the Master Deed.
The Association and its homeowners believe that Adell Ree Park is one of the nicest condominium communities in this general area, and we want to continue to maintain a well-kept and safe community.
