Living in Cotswold
Cotswold is one of Charlotte’s first boomtowns, first built in the 1960s as development swept south from Uptown. Today, Cotswold remains one of the city’s most sought-after residential neighborhoods.
Its centerpiece is the Cotswold Village shopping center — boasting everything from groceries to yoga to pancakes. The neighborhood school, Cotswold Elementary, is another of its crown jewels, renowned for its diversity and its International Baccalaureate curriculum.
A gateway between upscale SouthPark and the up-and-coming Oakhurst neighborhood and convenient to everywhere from Uptown to Ballantyne, Cotswold is a crucial connection and a beautiful place to live.
