This week Neighborhood of the Week goes back down south just off of Alcoa Highway to revisit a nice little neighborhood with a quaint little name: Martha Washington Heights.

Located off the east side of Alcoa Highway between Woodson Drive and Maloney Road, Martha Washington Heights is a laid back, established neighborhood consisting mostly of homes built in the 1950s-1970s, although there is some newer construction along the edges of the community.

Like Harrill Hills and Westwood, MWH contains a nice blend of mid to late 20th century home styles, including ranchers, traditional two-stories, and, of course, split foyers.

Since it’s right on Alcoa, Martha Washington heights is convenient to UT, downtown, and Tyson McGhee airport. It’s also within very easy commuting distance of West Knoxville, since it’s easily accessible via I-40 and I-440.

So if you’re looking for something centrally located that’s also a little off the beaten path and that also has a good bit of character and nice, big trees, you might want to take a closer look at Martha Washington Heights.
