The sprawling 1960s rancher that was once home to legendary Tennessee football coach Johnny Majors is now up for sale for $1.5 million. The 3,624-square-foot house, located at 4207 Beechwood Road in Knoxville, Tennessee, features a vaulted cathedral ceiling and wood-burning fireplace in the living room, as well as a boat slip and dock on the Tennessee River. Majors, who died in 2020 at the age of 85, was a three-time All-American at Tennessee and a Heisman Trophy runner-up in 1956. He coached the Vols from 1977 to 1997, winning three Southeastern Conference championships and leading the team to four bowl games.
The house is being sold in “as-is” condition and may need some updating, but it has the potential to be a stunning waterfront retreat. The property also includes a detached two-car garage, a workshop, and a storage shed.
Anyone interested in purchasing the home can contact listing agent Vicki Collins with Keller Williams Realty.
This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Tennessee football history. Majors was a beloved figure in Knoxville and throughout the state of Tennessee. His home is sure to be of interest to Vols fans and anyone looking for a unique and spacious home on the Tennessee River.
