Alcova Heights is an established neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, located northwest of the intersection of the Columbia Pike with South Glebe Road. Developed in the 1920s from a farm, the name “Alcova” was initially an abbreviation for Alexandria County, VA. Today Alcova Heights offers a suburban feel but with the convenience of close proximity to a mix of shops and restaurants, all within walking distance on Columbia Pike. The housing stock is varied ranging from traditional colonials and Cape Cods to bungalows and split-levels. All homes were individually built between 1921 and 1950 so feature a mix of architectural styles and detail.
Alcova Heights claims a diverse cultural mix of families and professions as well as an unusually active resident association.
