Cotswold Real Estate

    While what used to be known as Cotswold Mall was one of Charlotte’s first suburban shopping centers, the Cotswold area has gained a reputation in its own right. Including subdivisions Sherwood Forest, Randolph Park, Olde Cotswold, Wendover Hill and Providence Park, Cotswold is a Charlotte favorite. Sitting comfortably at 21 minutes from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, 12 minutes from the Park Road area, and 11 minutes from Uptown and its attractions, Cotswold is a great area of Charlotte for commuters and families alike.

    Those who live in Cotswold love the charm and convenience of their 1950 and ‘60s houses being so close to Cotswold Village Shops, which serve as the area’s watering ground. The shops found here are a healthy mix of practical, such as Harris Teeter and Rite Aid, to indulgent, such as Bath and Body Works, Ulta, and Marshall’s. With constant additions such as Y2 Yoga, the area’s newest hot yoga studio, and restaurants such as The Pizza Peel, The Improper pig, Panera Bread, there is something for all ages to be found at Cotswold Village Shops. The shops are located at the intersection of South Sharon Amity Road and Randolph Road.

    While the Cotswold neighborhood doesn’t offer its residents their own park, the McMullen Creek Watershed runs through the area and Freedom Park is an easy 9-minute drive away. The park offers multiple baseball and soccer fields, a full-court basketball court, two playgrounds, an NFL Play60KidZone, and multiple walking trails, including a connection to the Little Sugar Creek Greenway. Every year, Freedom Park is host to Festival in the Park, a Charlotte tradition for more than 50 years. Many residents participate, taking in nearly 1,000 entertainers and hundreds of artists every September. More information about the festival, along with other activities, can be found on the park’s Facebook page.

    Cotswold is home to a myriad of educational options, ranging from Pre-K to middle school. Providence Preparatory is the area’s leading Pre-K program, and many of their students go on to attend Cotswold Elementary and Randolph Middle School. Private schools in the area are Adventist Christian Academy and Sharon Montessori.

    The homes in the Cotswold area go fast, and they include single-family homes, apartments, condominiums, and large luxury homes with an average listing price of $642,208.
