Welcome to one of the most extraordinary and thoughtfully designed communities in the D.C. area. Fillmore Place by Craftmark Homes embodies what a true in-town luxury townhome should be. From the ultra-walkable location to the beautifully appointed interiors, homebuyers are sure to be impressed.
The intrigue and excitement of Fillmore Place begins with a 19th century origin story that took place near the current location of this community. The historic significance of this location is tied to Hachaliah Bailey, founder of one of America’s earliest circuses. Craftmark has infused Bailey’s sense of adventure and playful wonderment into this new, exciting community. In this article we will discover just how Fillmore Place sets itself apart from other townhome communities and learn a little more about this historic location in Alexandria, Virginia.
One of the highlights of Fillmore Place is the community’s superb location. Not only as it relates to convenience and entertainment, but also the story behind this exact spot. The intersection of two major commuter routes to Washington, D.C., and Alexandria known as Bailey’s Crossroads, after the famous circus founder, Hachaliah Bailey, is right around the corner from Fillmore Place.
In 1837 Bailey purchased this land and made this spot the winter headquarters for his circus. Craftmark Homes has embraced the history of this area and molded pieces of this fascinating American dream story into the design and character of the townhome community that stands in its place today. The vibrant nightlife and extensive dining options in the immediate surrounding area make this the perfect place for the young professional to escape to and relax. Less than a 15-minute drive to Amazon HQ2, the Pentagon, many major corporate offices, and Old Town Alexandria, Fillmore Place truly could not be more convenient. You’ll love living just 1.5 miles from the Village at Shirlington, and the walkability of nearby shopping and dining.
Craftmark Homes is now offering The Bradley floor plan at Fillmore Place. The great news is they currently have a few move-in ready homes available! This floor plan is a super spacious 2,500+ square foot, four-level dream townhome with a roof-top deck. The entry-level features a rec room off the garage which would be great for a man cave, she shed, office, or playroom. Above that, on the main level, is a large living room and dining room, a gourmet kitchen featuring Bosch appliances and a stunning island, and the family room. The first bedroom level features not one but two master suites – complete with full baths and walk-in closets. And we have a feeling you’re really going to love the top level. This is where you’ll find the loft with an optional wet bar and doors leading to your own personal rooftop terrace. The Bradley is a townhome shopper’s dream come true.
The features and benefits of these beautiful townhomes go far beyond just the high-end brands found throughout. In fact, the detail and thoughtful design are instantly apparent in every area of a Fillmore Place townhome, from the crown molding and five-inch engineered hardwood floors to the oak stairs and five-and-a-half-inch baseboards throughout.
The kitchens feature quartz countertops, 42-inch maple cabinets, under-mount stainless steel single-bowl sink, and Bosch stainless appliances. And that’s just getting started. Some of the finer details in the design include a multiport tech wiring package with RG-6 and CAT-6, wireless access point pre-wires, a security system, designer doors with Schlage® chrome hardware, and a home automation system with one year of service – so you can work from home, in comfort and style.
Craftmark Homes also understands the importance of protecting our environment. Here are just a few of the energy-saving features included in a Fillmore Place townhome: single-slider and fixed low-E/Argon insulated vinyl windows, a Rinnai tankless gas hot water heater, LED bulbs throughout, a whole-house energy seal package, and a Trane® high-efficiency gas furnace with electric A/C.

Fillmore Place allows residents to mix the convenience and excitement of city living with the relaxing comfort of home. Your luxury townhome provides an atmosphere of solace and security while allowing you to recharge after a long day. When it’s time to get back out there, your commute could be as easy as biking to the nearby Metro stop. On evenings and weekends, finding a place to dine or hang out is no challenge at all – or, you can relax on your rooftop deck with a cocktail. Fillmore Place is an instant upgrade to any lifestyle.
