ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, June 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Thornton in Alexandria (1199 S. Washington, St.) is not only drawing tenants for its large floorplans, luxury finishes and waterfront location, but also because it is pet friendly. “We know that Alexandria is a dog-friendly town and we want our residents to also enjoy their pets,” said Michelle Partridge, regional property manager of Foulger-Pratt, developer of The Thornton. Last weekend, the property featured “Mutts and Mimosas,” a get together for residents and their pets. More pet-friendly activities and events are planned throughout the year.

Situated on Hunting Creek, close to its intersection with the Potomac River, The Thornton is located in its own private sanctuary with multiple trails, including the paved 18-mile Mt. Vernon Trail that stretches from Theodore Roosevelt Island to historic Mount Vernon (former home of George Washington). It connects with the Potomac Heritage trail, Custis, Rock Creek, Four Mile Run and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge trails taking users from Alexandria to National Harbor. The Mount Vernon Trail is a short ride or walk from Arlington Cemetery, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Rosslyn Metro stations.

The building is the largest, new waterfront apartment building in Alexandria and provides more than 50 floor plan options, including a multitude of spacious studio homes up to 540 sq.ft., with a sleeping alcove, one and two-bedroom homes up to 1,177 sq ft. and amenities for both homeowners and pets, which includes a dog grooming salon.

“With the amazing trail access, outdoor pool and bocce court, outdoor green spaces, fitness center, and access to kayaking and canoeing, along with storage for kayaks and bikes, we’re seeing a lot of interest from adults who enjoy an active lifestyle,” said Partridge.

Other amenities include gated indoor parking with guest parking; luxe lounges throughout with fireplaces and work spaces, as well as nooks with televisions, a coffee station and formal library. Indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces provide areas to host family and guests.

In keeping with the historic architecture of Old Town, the exterior of The Thornton is a timeless classic. Inside, the designs are luxurious and modern with unparalleled attention to detail—quartz countertops; walk-in closets in most homes; movable kitchen islands in some homes; rich, wood-looking flooring; USB outlets; and keyless entry. Many homes have views of the Potomac River and Hunting Creek and some have private outdoor balconies. Each unit has its own full-size washer and dryer.

The Thornton is also all about easy access. Situated in a quiet oasis, there’s easy access to I-495/I-95 and the George Washington Parkway. National Harbor is just across the Wilson Bridge from The Thornton with its eight hotels, more than 40 restaurants, 160 shops and the recently opened luxury MGM National Harbor—hailed as one of the best entertainment venues on the East Coast.

There is no other apartment building in the Washington, D.C. region that has as much to offer as The Thornton. For those with an active lifestyle, The Thornton offers what few other residences can provide—extensive outdoor waterfront trails and activities. Between the building’s extensive amenities, including the huge variety of floor plans, and its location, it is no surprise that The Thornton is leasing quickly.
