About the property

Historic Mid-Century Modern Gem

This one-of-a-kind mid-century modern gem is on the National Register of Historic Places. Nestled on a wooded private lot, it has an open floor plan with a stone fireplace, marble floors, built-ins, and is only minutes from downtown. Called the Daniel House, this unique house was built in 1948 and is a wonderful example of mid-century modern architecture.

Uniquely built into a hillside from salvaged Quonset hut structural supports, the house is only 10 minutes to downtown Knoxville (and the stadium) but offers a lot of privacy due to the wooded lot. Guests will love the distinctive architectural features and its use of indigenous local materials, including the marble slab walls and floors. There is a king-sized bed in the master bedroom and a queen in the guest bedroom. A 50" flat screen TV with DVD player, cable, and wireless internet is also provided. The house is complete with all amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and a garage for your car. Plus, when you arrive you will find plenty of soda, water, coffee, tea, and goodies awaiting you!

Lovely property, so unusual, historic

Great spot for 3 days, 2 couples. It was steamy outside but cool inside. Beds and pillows comfy. Easy drive to downtown.

Bright, open, creative architectural home

  • 5 of 5

We felt very welcome at the Daniel House, it is a remarkable home, a restored National Trust property from 1949 with open spaces, relaxing to be in, many seating areas to choose from. We were two couples, the bedrooms were big, a balcony or deck area off each one, comfortable bed linens and plush towels. The home is within ten minutes of the city by car, yet has the feeling of a country retreat--best of both worlds, in our view. Our host was responsive, friendly, left some treats in the fridge and on our pillows for us!
