Get to know Cotswold

Cotswold is located 10 minutes south of Uptown Charlotte and encompasses the area between Providence and Randolph Roads. It’s highly desirable for its convenience to central neighborhoods like Uptown and SouthPark. Many of the original homes that were built here in the 1950s and 1960s have undergone renovations and even ground-up remodels, yielding a glorious inventory of mid-century stock. Within Cotswold itself, you’ll find the additional neighborhoods of Sherwood Forest, Randolph Park, and Providence Park — not to mention the majestic Rosewood at Providence condominiums, a Chateau-esque complex on nine gently-wooded acres. The intersection of Randolph and Sharon Amity Roads is home to The Cotswold Village Shops, originally known as the Cotswold Mall, which opened in 1963 as one of Charlotte’s first suburban shopping centers.

Living in Charlotte

The Charlotte area was the site of America’s first gold rush, prompted in 1799 when 12-year-old Conrad Reed found a whopper of a nugget playing in a Cabarrus County creek. Today, people are drawn here by other lodes: booming commerce, vibrant culture, and a subtropical climate that’s palpably milder than just a state or two north. Greater Charlotte represents the fourth-largest metropolitan region in the Southeast and one of the fastest-growing in the entire country. Nearly three million make their home in the 16 counties surrounding the “Queen City,” located in both North and South Carolina—they’ve gained nearly 20% of their collective population over the past decade alone. Countless companies across all industries maintain headquarters, if not a substantial presence, in Charlotte’s thriving urban core, most notably the finance, technology, and higher education sectors. And while “Metrolina” is all well inland, water-borne recreation thrives on Lake Norman, the largest manmade lake in the state, and throughout the Catawba River basin.
