Butch Jones’ Knoxville House Is For Sale

Former Vols football coach Butch Jones is officially selling his beautiful 11,476 sq. ft. Knoxville house for $3,795,000. According to tax records, Butch paid $3,212,500 for the house back in 2013. Take a tour and you tell me how nice this house is. I’m not an expert on the Knoxville real estate market, but this has to be one of the nicest houses for sale in that area. That pool area is no joke and the basement is a real basement where guys can do real guy things like watch football, talk football, show off football trophies and drink.

From Butch’s realtor:

Imagine some of the nicest well-built homes in Knoxville & this is at the very top of the list. Located in the prestigious & gated community of Oakleigh, surrounded by upper bracket custom homes. Built by Schmid & Rhodes & beautifully positioned on over 4 wooded ACs. Circular drive approaches this stunning stone & brick home w/ every possible amenity one can offer. Paradise back yard offers screened porch w/ phantom screens overlooking the pool/spa & separate pavilion w/ 2nd outside bar, gas firepit & torches for evening entertaining. Lower covered sitting area w/ a beautiful stone fp is located off the LL of this sports haven mecca!

A little bit of football may have been spoken in this home & this level is exhilarating to the sports enthusiast. * See more in the supplement remarks * Stone arches surround the 8th fp, full bar/kitchen, wine cellar, glass enclosed display cabinets, den w/ see thru fp, card rm, media rm, sauna, 5 mounted TV’s, ping pong area & massive storage! Main level is wide open w/ cozy paneled study as you enter, formal DR recently updated, light colored kitchen w/ 16′ island all adjoining the keeping rm. Step down to the lg family rm w/ another f. place & all of this opens to the rear screened porch.

Master suite is beyond impressive w/ newly added HIS closet all w/ stained built-ins & huge island, HER closet is equally impressive, furniture grade vanities & all has high ceilings & very impressive moldings. Upper Level has 5 BR’s all w/ private baths & more storage. Enjoy lots of new updating, 6 HVAC systems, new draperies, 2 new hot water heaters, Elon sound system w/ security cameras & music throughout, some new light fixtures, dual staircases. This one will not disappoint.

Butch is now off doing his thing at Alabama and it looks like that might become a permanent role now that he’s graduated from intern to Nick Saban’s special assistant.

Mortgage: you’re looking at about $18k a month before you have gardeners come in to keep the place looking spectacular. And maids…you’re going to need maids (plural) to keep it all clean.

  1. Hey Joe,
    Does the brochure have the specs on the gate out front? You know…how tall is it, what’s it made of, is it electrified, etc., etc.? $3.7 mil…that’s a lot for a gate, don’tcha think.

  2. It’s time for Vol football players to demand that their coaches NOT live in gated communities.
    Historically, gates and walls around homes can be considered symbols of white privilege and racism. People like Maxine Waters denounce Trump’s border wall as racist. (Should mention that Waters lives in a gated community.) Also, players should demand a salary cap for coaches and limit the amount a coach can spend on a home.
