Glebewood Village Historic District is a small residential neighborhood of 104 single-dwelling row houses in Arlington County, built as a planned commuting suburb of Washington, D.C. Construction began in 1937 and was completed by the spring of 1938. Within easy reach of major transportation corridors, Glebewood Village attracted government workers who commuted to and from the capital. The Glebewood Village Historic District features seven blocks of brick row houses consisting of between two and 39 dwellings, each with a small front yard. Each dwelling is two stories in height, two bays wide, and capped with an asymmetrical side-gable roof. The use of three different interpretations of the Colonial Revival style breaks up the uniformity of house size and building materials. The result is a mix of side-entry, central-entry, and Cape Cod dwellings. The combination of uniformity with slight variations created a cohesive, charming neighborhood.
Many properties listed in the registers are private dwellings and are not open to the public, however many are visible from the public right-of-way. Please be respectful of owner privacy.
