Limited-Edition Luxury Apartments in Cockeysville


March 24, 2011|By Advertorial Content by Briarcliff Legacy Apartments


For more than 40 years, Briarcliff has been the No. 1 apartment community in Cockeysville. Known for having an extensive list of features, amenities and innovative community firsts, Briarcliff is the first apartment community in Cockeysville to feature all-masonry construction, the first to provide full-size washers and dryers in every apartment, the first complex to offer a full range of fitness amenities, the first community with Verizon FiOS and now, the first community to offer limited-edition luxury apartments.

Gebhart Properties utilized four decades of innovation, construction, and design experience and combined it with dedication to tenant satisfaction to create The LEGACY apartments at Briarcliff. These exclusive apartments are limited to a select number of premium residences within the Briarcliff East community. These locations include buildings where the parking is plentiful and the views are unbelievable. LEGACY buildings are tucked back well inside the community away from the busy roads and sounds of the city. They are soothingly settled right beside, and overlooking, the Longview Golf Course providing tranquil surroundings and peace of mind.

The LEGACY Apartments at Briarcliff are custom built by essentially gutting existing apartments of everything inside, tearing down walls, and completely starting over. An expert team of builders and developers then work tirelessly to create all-new apartment homes unlike anything else in the Northern Baltimore area. Once completed, LEGACY apartments are gleaming with beautiful all-new features including maple cabinets that are custom built to increase kitchen storage by at least 25 percent, granite-style countertops, premium hand-laid tile in the kitchen and bathroom, matching all-new satin black appliances, stainless steel double sinks, crown molding, designer light fixtures, designer plumbing fixtures, wall-to-wall carpets, six-panel interior doors, energy-efficient windows, and much more. Add to that the fact that Briarcliff apartments are 15 to 20 percent larger than units in surrounding communities, and you have an apartment home that's truly second to none.

Perhaps the most significant amenity is the virtually fireproof and soundproof construction that is unrivaled in any apartment community in the area. Each apartment is surrounded by 8 inches of concrete and masonry including floors, ceilings and walls. Although this is the most expensive way to build apartment homes, masonry construction is the most durable, and provides the most piece of mind because of its ability to reduce or eliminate sound transmission from one apartment to another and to provide exceptional safety against fire. In fact, in Briarcliff’s 40-year history, an apartment fire has never spread from one unit to another and they have never lost a building due to fire.

The open floor plan features a central island with countertop-seating and adjustable pendant lighting that ties together the living room, dining room and kitchen which is perfect when entertaining guests, or just enjoying a quick breakfast in the morning. It’s also the main feature of the fully re-designed kitchen that is optimized to put everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal right at your fingertips. Step into this luxurious space and let your inner chef emerge every day. Each unit also features a full-size washer and dryer in a separate room inside the apartment so you don't have to deal with the hassle of carrying your laundry to a community facility, or sacrificing any of your valuable privacy.

Of course as part of the Briarcliff Community, The LEGACY Apartments at Briarcliff enjoy all of the same top-notch amenities for which Briarcliff is already well-known. This includes an Olympic-size swimming pool with two diving boards and a wading pool for children; a full-size gymnasium and fully equipped fitness center with free weights as well as strength and cardio exercise machines; recently renovated private tennis courts, picnic areas with grills; and five playgrounds throughout the community. The Briarcliff community is also Verizon FiOS-ready, and features valet trash service from your door, a car wash station, and emergency maintenance 24/7. The staff at Briarcliff can even furnish your new apartment through a third-party rental company for an additional monthly charge.

With the housing market continuing to remain unstable, The LEGACY Apartments at Briarcliff offer you the added comfort of apartment living. For less than the cost of a mortgage payment, you’ll enjoy a spacious apartment with premium amenities; no-cost, no-hassle maintenance; no condo or HOA fees; no upkeep or repair costs; and all of the pleasure and satisfaction of luxury living. If you are looking for a quality place to call home, a place that’s nicer than the average dime-a-dozen stick-built apartment, look no further than The LEGACY Apartments at Briarcliff. Schedule a tour today and see how Gebhart Properties is bringing luxury back to apartment living. Welcome home … we’ve been expecting you!
