Cockeysville, along with Hunt Valley, Timonium and Lutherville make up the “York Road Corridor” of communities. Located just twenty minutes north of Baltimore City, Cockeysville is a quiet and diverse suburb with a wide array of housing choices. Residences in Cockeysville vary from spacious low rise condominiums, traditional brick townhouses, and quaint cottages, to sprawling estates with private driveways and several acres of land.
Cockeysville, named after the Cockey family which helped establish the town, developed as part of a big iron mining community. In recent years Cockeysville has grown from a rural village to a suburban town with planned communities and attractive subdivisions that have sprung up in response to employment opportunities in the business park of Hunt Valley. The Cockeysville school district includes several Maryland State Blue Ribbon Award-winners and strong athletic programs. Cockeysville is also a short commute to the city on I-83 or on the Lightrail train system.
Cockeysville’s award winning schools, numerous shopping centers, movie theaters, and restaurants make it popular with locals who do not want to stray far from home. Considerably more affordable than its neighboring towns, Cockeysville real estate is a popular choice for first time buyers looking to purchase a single family home or townhouse.
