Whether you are taking your child to school or heading out for a family dinner at a favorite restaurant, you can easily walk along the peaceful streets and sidewalks past the beautiful assortment of unique homes built over the course of the last 70 years. Welcome to Cotswold.
In recent years, Cotswold has become quite a hotspot for young families and professionals. Proximity to Uptown, the airport, and some of Charlotte's top employers play a role in the community's popularity. Its quality homes, ranging from updated ranches built during the 1950s to new construction are also a major attraction.
However, the tight-knit sense of community, as well as the fact that everything you need is right there in the neighborhood, ranging from shopping destinations to schools, have also added to Cotswold's appeal. As a matter of fact, the community is named for the historic shopping center, Cotswold Village that still thrives there today.
The city of Charlotte incorporated way back in 1768. Named for Queen Charlotte of England, the city became the site of the first gold rush in 1799, but gold-seekers eventually left for better opportunities out west. For a while, the settlers in the area were mostly farmers, particularly cotton farmers, but soon textile production began. The railroads also came to town, providing those textile manufacturers with access to a large market of customers in Atlanta. This was just the beginning of the city's history as a business center.
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. The city is home to many Fortune 500 companies and considered a major banking industry hub, second only to New York City.
Cotswold earned its name from a shopping center, so you know shopping is going to be plentiful in the area. From independent local shops to big-name national chains, there are plenty of opportunities in Cotswold and the surrounding areas. The same goes for great restaurants. Beyond shopping and dining, the community is close to several parks, golf courses, and even the Mint Museum. There are several sports and concert venues within a few miles of the community, as well as other museums and places for all ages to have a good time.
Many of the homes in Cotswold were built during the 1950s and 1960s, so you will find an assortment of quality ranch-style, Craftsman, and split-level dwellings. Many of them have since been updated or remodeled. Among them are some traditional two-story homes built during the 1980s, as well as a little new construction and several sprawling estates. The lots are larger in this established neighborhood and some are even over an acre. A few condos and townhomes are also available. The average home sells for about $650,000.
