Welcome to McCordsville
Custom executive homes and a tranquil, halcyon environment pair up to make this tiny town the fastest-rising suburb in the Greater Indianapolis Area.

Sweeping fields and quiet neighborhoods denote the peaceful ambiance of McCordsville, which draws in families with its great schools and serene way of living. Here, residents can feel set completely apart from the commercial bustle of bigger city lifestyles, while not being so far away as to no longer enjoy the convenience of urban amenities.
McCordsville is set northeast of Indianapolis, just south of the Geist Reservoir. It's bisected by US-36, which takes residents straight into the heart of Downtown Indy in under 30 minutes. Though the town has developed many modern attributes since it was first platted in 1865, the appealing, small-town charisma has remained exactly the same.
Recently, McCordsville has seen a rise in the creation of desirable, single-family homes, and is considered the fastest-growing suburb in Hancock County. A variety of architectural styles and plans exist for these new-build, premium homes. If potential buyers aren’t satisfied with the range of contemporary Craftsman houses and traditional, two-story American options, they also have the opportunity to custom-build their own dream homes.
