Announcing ... Opening of New Model Home In Timbercrest
Designed as a Community of Beauty
Visiting Timbercrest is a new and different experience... one that you will not soon forget. You will find an atmosphere of quiet elegance in the peaceful streets that wind among the homes. Each home is an individual expression of moods, tastes and thoughts... each home is created with luxurious family living in mind
Far enough removed from the busy city pace to afford a rare and tree lined intimacy, yet convenient to every need, Timbercrest is near churches, schools, shopping centers, recreation areas, and is a scant 7 minutes from downtown and only 30 minutes from Oak Ridge.
Better Living Begins When You Own A New Home. For homes that are planned and built by master craftsmen... and for an investment that grows in value year after year... you must see Timbercrest.
Timbercrest offers a variety in lots, some wooded and some with beautiful panoramic views of the Smokies, which will lend beauty to each individual home. Graceful and happy living can be yours in Timbercrest with homes that offer good design, quality construction materials, careful planning and convenient location.
You are cordially invited to drive through Timbercrest, at your leisure, from time to time and visit our model homes which we will have on display. In doing this you will realize our pride in making this an outstanding community. We would also be pleased to discuss with you the design and construction of your new home, whether it is to be constructed now or at a later date.
