Located just west of Towson, Pikesville is a Baltimore County Suburb that spans both sides of the Baltimore Beltway. Believe it or not, Pikesville actually gets its names from the American soldier and explorer Zebulon Pike, who among other things discovered Pikes Peak. Considered the center of the Baltimore area’s Jewish community, many of the region’s largest and most established synagogues and Jewish schools are located in or near Pikesville.
Pikesville residents enjoy some of the most diverse housing inventory in Maryland. Homes for sale in Pikesville have varying architectural styles such as colonial, split levels, contemporary and ranchers, townhomes, and condominiums in both older established neighborhoods and new developments.
Serving the needs of Pikesville residents is a thriving business community of retail and professional service businesses from big box stores to specialty stores that offer one of a kind clothing, china, jewelry, gifts, and food. And all of this shopping is conveniently located along the Pikesville’s main thoroughfare, Reisterstown Road.
And let’s not forget the food. If Chinese is your thing, then you just have to try Jumbo Seafood, in the mood for bagels, then Goldberg’s N.Y. Kosher Bagels is the place to go. Is fine dining in your future, then sit at the kitchen bar at Linwood’s and watch chef Linwood Dame create your meal (dinner and a show!). Don’t have time for a formal sit down, then you have to try the pastrami sandwich at Edmart Delicatessen or Lenny’s Deli.
Pikesville’s access to the Baltimore Beltway, BWI Airport, the MARC Commuter Service, MTA Bus lines, and the Light Rail make it a popular area for those who work in Baltimore City (just 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore) and Washington, D.C. (less than an hour).
