Living near where you work has many benefits and can improve your overall happiness. Let’s face it – long commutes are miserable! A recent study concluded that 20 additional minutes of commuting is as detrimental to job satisfaction as a 19% pay cut. Not only that, but longer commutes also equal more wear and tear on your vehicle, not to mention increased fuel consumption. It’s bad your wallet and the environment, and you’ll feel worse about your job in general. It’s a lose-lose-lose situation.
Craftmark Homes recognizes this problem and has made a concerted effort to choose ideal destinations for our communities so they’re centrally located and easily accessible to major employment hubs. Our current collection of communities with new single-family homes and townhomes are in desirable locations throughout the Washington, D.C. region.
Towns at South Alex®
Our townhome community at Towns at South Alex® is located in the heart of South Alexandria and is mere minutes away from major employers such as Amazon HQ2, The Pentagon, Fort Belvoir, Tysons Corner, and Joint Base Andrews. You’ll also love living just a mile to the Metro – so you can ditch the car.
Our homes in Mateny Hill are situated in Germantown and offer easy access to the I-270. Plus, you can walk to the MARC station and be in D.C. in a jiffy! Employers in the area include Lockheed Martin, Marriott International, Verizon and the National Institutes of health. These companies and agencies alone provide jobs for over 30,000 people.
Georgia Row at Walter Reed
Our fabulous residences at Georgia Row at Walter Reed are only four blocks from the Red Line metro, meaning that you’ll live just stops from the best D.C. and downtown Silver Spring (just a stop away!) have to offer! The major government offices and huge private employees nearby are too numerous to list.
Clarksburg Town Center
Located close to the new 1-270 Biotech Corridor, this luxurious community would be perfect for those professionals in the biological sciences. Maryland is home to over 500+ biotech firms, and the I-270 Biotech Corridor is attracting new tenants daily! The goal is for this amazing new complex to be a top three biotech hub by the year 2023. Plus, at Clarksburg Town Center, you’ll be close to the Shady Grove metro station, so you can park and ride into the city.
Primrose Hill is a quick five-minute drive from the center of Annapolis. Annapolis is home to both state and county government services, as well as the U.S. Naval Academy. So, if you’re a civil servant or work for the academy, Primrose Hill is an excellent place to live. Not only is it close to these large employers, but it offers natural privacy, as the community is nestled in a forested area. You get the convenience of a central location with the perks of an enclave residence.
Preserve at Westfields
Our Preserve at Westfields community is very close to the Dulles Technology Corridor, one of the premier tech hubs in the nation. It boasts a long list of major employers, including the headquarters of companies such as Capital One, General Dynamics and Volkswagen. We feel there’s no better place to live and commute if you’re a tech professional.
Fillmore Place of West Alexandria
The VIP list for Fillmore Place is filling up fast because this townhome community is going to be in the heart of West Alexandria’s redevelopment. With easy commuting options at hand and walkable entertainment and shopping, your wallet will love the fuel savings!
