Welcome Home!

For more than 50 years, Briarcliff has been the number one apartment community in Cockeysville; known for having an extensive list of features, amenities and community firsts. Briarcliff is the first apartment community built in Cockeysville to feature all-masonry construction, the first to provide full-size washer and dryers in every unit, the first community with Verizon FiOS and now, the first community to offer limited-edition luxury apartments. We are also privately owned and locally owner-managed.

As a privately owned and managed company, we pride ourselves on our efforts to maintain your apartment and our community as one of the most desirable locations in Cockeysville and Baltimore County. Our community includes one, two, and three bedroom apartment homes, many with dens. Briarcliff provides you with superb amenities and features including the most spacious floor plans in the area.

Our goal is to provide you with unsurpassed and continuous comfort, convenience, and service that cannot be found in any other apartment home in our area. If you need a comfortable and convenient apartment home with easy access to Baltimore and the surrounding metro region, look no farther than Briarcliff Apartments.

“Having a great apartment is one thing, but the reason I’ve stayed is the staff. The administrative office is great to work with — always helpful and quick to address any needs, issues, or concerns. The maintenance staff is professional and quick to respond, usually with ‘above and beyond’ service!”

Thanks to the 8" solid concrete masonry construction surrounding every apartment, the walls of Briarcliff Apartments have a Sound Transmission Class (STC) Rating of 64 decibels. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) requires walls of 50 decibels. Briarcliff Apartments surpasses this requirement, making the units virtually soundproof and fireproof.
