About Our Neighborhood
The Beverly Acres community is in North Knox County, nestled between Tazewell Pike and the crest of Black Oak Ridge. A sign bearing the subdivision name stands in a small, landscaped triangle at the intersection of Shannondale Road, Barbara Drive, and Malibu Drive.
Beverly Acres is just east of Shannondale and lies outside the Knoxville city limits, which is marked generally by Shannondale. The entrance street is Malibu Drive. Other streets in the subdivision are Angeles Drive, Catalina Drive, Santa Monica Road, Simona Road, and Tahoe Lane. All the streets are curbed.
The Beverly Acres property was once part of the Truan dairy farmland, owned by the Swiss-French family that settled in this region years ago.
Development of the subdivision was begun in 1964 by the late Knoxville businessman Ralph Brooks, and for several years it had only a dozen or so houses, but the community gradually grew through the years, and today has 119 homes, with fewer than a half-dozen undeveloped lots remaining.
The community has rich, lush trees and well-maintained lawns, often causing visitors to comment on the community’s beauty. The rolling terrain provides an inviting, though rigorous, route for runners and walkers.
There is a spirit of community among residents of Beverly Acres, with almost 100 percent of the households participating as members of the Beverly Acres Citizens Association, which sponsors annual dinner meetings, a summer ice cream social, and a Christmas Open House, alternately hosted from year to year by one of the residents.
Several homeowners in Beverly Acres have been residents of the community from its beginning days, yet there are also many households made up of young families.
The Fountain City Dogwood Trail passes through Beverly Acres, and several homes display garden spots or camera sites along the trail.
