Jimmy Haslam Is Selling His Elegant Knoxville House – $4,900,000



I was going to post this Friday night when Cleveland media was going nuts over the news that Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is selling his Knoxville mansion for $4,900,00, but I was already on the couch watching Sweet 16 action and it had been a long week. So you get this today. You get to see how NFL owners live. You get to see inside Jimbo’s 10,000 sq. ft. hillside retreat that includes a sweet all-season patio where you’ll feel 60 and loaded.

Are you loaded? Do you need space to stretch out? Want a place where you can watch the leaves change along the Tennessee River and complain about Vols football? This your place.

According to Jimbo’s real estate agent:

Rarely does a Majestic home such as this become available. Elements straddle the past and future with a soulful embracing of its history. This historic ”Tudor Architectural Gem” was constructed in 1928 by Charles I. Barber for the Coykendall family. Barber designed five period homes which were constructed to capture Knoxville’s breathtaking/magnificent views of our winding Tennessee River and Smoky Mountains. 5020 Lyons View is considered to be the favorite!

Jimbo was in his early 40s when he plopped down some serious cash for this place in 1996.
