Nashville Developer Scott Sohr Revives Knoxville Subdivision


NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Elmington Homes, a Nashville based real estate investment firm founded by Scott Sohr, announces its recent purchase of 34 residential lots in the luxurious Wellington Chase residential neighborhood.  Wellington Chase is located in the heart of Hardin Valley in Knoxville, off the east side of Hardin Valley Road less than one mile from I-40/Pellissippi Parkway and just north of I-40 in west Knox county. 

New homes in the subdivision are built by McCamy Construction, a Knoxville company that has served as the subdivision's exclusive builder. The homes average 2,100 to 2,600 square feet with up to four bedrooms, open floor plans, one or two-story design, front entry two-car garages and views of the Cumberland Plateau.  The interiors are stocked with top-of-the-line Whirlpool appliances, engineered hardwood floors, ceramic tile, granite countertops and solid cherry cabinetry.  The exteriors are completed with maintenance free brick and stone.

"Wellington Chase is an ideal environment for new families and empty nesters alike," said Elmington Homes founder Scott Sohr, who was struck by the natural beauty of the Hardin Valley property. "The surrounding views of the Smokey Mountains, and the broad availability of nearby amenities and quality schools, make Wellington Chase a highly appealing community." 

The Shops at Turkey Creek, a bustling retail development considered a premier shopping destination for Knoxville residents, is just 5-10 minutes from Wellington Chase. The neighborhood is located in the Hardin Valley school district, one of the top school districts in Knox county, and less than 15 minutes from local recreational activities and Pelissippi State Community College.

"The completion of a residential area like Wellington Chase is another good sign Knox County real estate is coming out of the economic downturn," stated Sam McCamy, chief manager of McCamy Construction. "We're honored to be a partner in the development and look forward to completing these homes."

Two Wellington Chase homes are currently under construction and scheduled to be completed in the fall of this year; several more are expected to break ground in the next few months. The new homes compliment the neighborhood's aesthetic look and feel and start in the mid-to-upper $200,000 range. Homes are listed with Kasey Meheula with Coldwell Banker Wallace & Wallace Realtors.
