Neighborhood Spotlight: Thorington Trace in Montgomery, AL

August 19th, 2008 categories: Montgomery, Neighborhoods

Thorington Trace is an established neighborhood in east Montgomery with relatively new, mid-priced homes, and a great proximity to new public schools

Thorington TraceFrom what I can tell from the curb, homes average somewhere around 1,600-2,00- square feet, and the neighborhood is designed to be a destination, not a thoroughfare (read – no thru traffic). 

The feeling is rural, but the neighborhood is really close to The Shoppes at Eastchase, Target, Publix, and the new Wal-Mart and Home Depot on Chantilly parkway. I took a picture of an average street in Thorington Trace so you can get the feel of it:

If public schools are a priority, Blount Elementary and (the under construction) Carr Middle schools are less than a mile down Ray Thorington Road.  We have some friends who have 5 kids (one 1st grader and a younger set of quads) who moved to Thorington Trace specifically for the public schools.  I’m sure they’re not the only ones!

As Montgomery marches eastward, Ray Thorington Road is no longer the end of the line – it is a major attraction with churches, ballfields, new schools, and schools under construction.  New neighborhoods are springing up alongside established ones on both sides of the road.
