Knollwood dates to 1851. It once served as headquarters for a Civil War general.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — One of Knoxville’s most historic mansions — built before the Civil War and a survivor of the city’s sprawl — has sold for $2 million, records show.

Knollwood on Bearden Hill formally changed hands Nov. 15, according to Nick McBride, Knox County register of deeds. Longtime owner Schaad Commercial Investments LLC sold the property at 150 Major Reynolds Place to Knollwood Historic Preservation LLC, which had an initial filing date of Nov. 1, according to Tennessee Secretary of State records.

The look of the property has changed significantly over the last 20 years. Some drivers passing below on Kingston Pike might not even notice it.

Until the mid to late 1990s, when the property was redeveloped, it stood by itself on the broad, steep hill with a sweeping view toward the Appalachian Mountains. The brick house now shares space with a bank, an Italian restaurant and a Japanese restaurant.

It sits on property once owned by James White, according to the Center for Transportation Research.
