In previous blogs, we’ve talked about the great attractions you may enjoy living in or close to Ellicott City. But are you aware there are actually many more perks to new home life in this city? There are a few pretty great reasons why it’s in the top five areas to live in Maryland in 2021, according to Niche—thinking of purchasing your new home in the Ellicott City area? Here’s why you definitely should!
Ellicott City Life
As mentioned previously, Ellicott City is a beautiful, history-rich town with plenty of fun and educational offerings. However, the city is not just all about Maryland history and the old mill town. In fact, the city area is divided into two housing sections, known as Historical Ellicott City and Greater Ellicott City. Historical Ellicott City features many historic homes that have been restored over the years. But if living in an older home is not for you, you may want to consider purchasing or building a custom new home in the Greater Ellicott City area. This area is still in close proximity to the small mill town but features much more new home flexibility when it comes to housing type. Greater Ellicott City features single-family homes, apartments, condos and townhomes to consider for your future place of residence.
One of the best reasons to choose the this city area for your new home is its close proximity to both Baltimore City and Washington, DC. The abundance of jobs in the DMV is a huge draw to the area, and you are within an hour of both major cities. Ellicott City is also extremely close to major highways 95 and 70, which both provide high-speed access to your place of work—driving, not your thing? Don’t worry! Your new home in the area will place you close to Maryland Area Regional Commuter train stations for an easy ride into the city with no annoying traffic jams.
Plenty to Do
One of the greatest features that comes with having a new home in this city is the countless activities and places to go. Check out some of the great historical offerings in the Old Ellicott City area, or maybe just enjoy an afternoon drink at one of the city’s many taverns or coffee houses. If the historic district isn’t quite your style, there are plenty of more modern suburban offerings around the city that can satisfy all tastes. You can also plan outdoor activities at the various parks and recreation facilities. And don’t forget about the neighboring Columbia area and all it has to offer including a music venue and many community festivals.
