Spotlights of Monkton

Beautiful Homes for Sale

Monkton real estate includes everything from the most luxurious estates to charming little cottages. One thing that all Monkton homes have in common: expansive yard space to explore. Since Monkton is such a highly sought-after area, the majority of homes here are more expensive than usual—reaching over $2 million, although you will find a few affordable options in the $200k range.

Rural Atmosphere

With a cozy population of just over 4,000, the Monkton community is fairly spread out, meaning you won't find a ton of people filling every square mile. Neighborhoods here are peaceful and secluded, offering prime access to some of the most stunning, private natural areas in the state. Listen to the rush of water and the wind through the trees, and you'd never guess that the city is just a half-hour away!

Local Attractions

While Monkton is small and far-removed, you'll still find a number of things to do around town! One of residents' favorite stops is Gunpowder Falls State Park, which has walking and biking paths running right by town. While the Great Outdoors is a pretty big part of the community, there's tons of other things to do, like check out what's on the menu at Manor Tavern, or browse the fresh goods at Karma Farm!

What You'll LOVE in Monkton

With small-town charm, stunning green spaces, and tons of things to do, Monkton is truly a one-of-a-kind place to call home.

Green Spaces

With Gunpowder Falls State Park so close by, it's easy to get in your daily dose of hiking, biking, and sightseeing—but there are a number of other green spaces to explore, as well! A favorite among locals and visitors is the Ladew Topiary Gardens, which offers 22 acres of award-winning gardens, nestled on a historic estate. Other major stops close by include Rocks State Park, Loch Raven Reservoir, and Sparks Park.

Public Schools

Monkton is located in the Baltimore County Public School District. The district serves over 110,000 students throughout its schools, but Monkton students benefit greatly from the town's smaller size. A few of the closest, highly ranked public schools include Sparks Elementary, Hereford Middle, and Hereford High. Since the town is relatively spread out, be sure to double-check exactly which schools you're zoned to.

Shopping & Dining

With Monkton being surrounded by farmland, many of the restaurants here use some of the freshest ingredients around. Manor Tavern is one of the top eateries in Monkton, specializing in seasonal American fare, and their produce comes from on-site gardens! Be sure to check out Woodfire Kitchen and the Monkton Hotel, as well. As far as shopping goes, nearby Hereford and Cockeysville are just 10-15 minutes away and filled with shopping centers for your every need.
