The town of Monkton, Maryland, is located approximately 30 miles north of Baltimore City and is home to a population of around 5,550 Baltimore County residents. Monkton real estate encompasses a 35 square mile radius with a relatively low population density of about 138 people per square mile. Monkton has become a popular residential area for those seeking small town flavor within driving distance of Baltimore City and the shopping and cultural events that can be found there.
History abounds in Monkton with homes dating back to the 1800’s. Monkton was not the town’s original name. In 1713, the third Lord Baltimore gave a land gift of 10,000 acres to his wife and called it “My Lady’s Manor.” Today, the name remains and the area is filled with large, sprawling horse farms, old stately homes and long tree-lined drives leading up to the homes. Monkton residents enjoy the peaceful lifestyle of days gone by, only minutes from shopping and freeways that can whisk you into Baltimore for a variety of cultural events and other attractions. The Corbett Historic District and “My Lady’s Manor” are both on the National Register of Historic Places.
For those who do not wish to travel into Baltimore for a day of fun, Monkton offers several local attractions including the Ladew Topiary Gardens on Jarrettsville Pike. The gardens are a non-profit attraction, open from April to October, seven days a week. All this and more awaits you when you choose to own Monkton real estate.
