Neighborhood of the Month – Cotswold


Cotswold is an established area in Charlotte next to parks, excellent schools and top shopping and dining destinations just minutes from Uptown. Whether you are taking your child to school or heading out for dinner at a favorite restaurant, you can easily walk along the peaceful streets and sidewalks past the beautiful, unique homes built over the course of the last 70 years. In recent years, the area has become a hotspot for young families and professionals. “Proximity to Uptown, our international airport and many of Charlotte’s top employers are part of what make this community so popular,” according to Catharine Pappas, VP of Relocation at Dickens Mitchener. “Also, the convenience of having shopping destinations and schools located right there in the neighborhood just adds to its appeal,” she explains. Welcome home to Cotswold!

History

In 1956, the Cotswold Village shopping center became one of the first malls in the city, and it made the mostly rural area around it a hotspot for city dwellers who wanted to get away from it all. They began moving to the area and named it Cotswold after the beloved shopping center which is still in business today. Modern Cotswold residents still have access to world-class shopping and dining, as well as unlimited business opportunities all over the Metropolitan Charlotte area.
