Architecturally stunning buildings with spacious residences, beautiful grounds and world-class amenities in Charlotte’s popular Cotswold neighborhood. Convenience to shopping, dining, golf courses, schools, and entertainment. Welcome to Rosewood.
Rosewood’s 134 homes are divided between three elegant 8-story buildings that sit on nine acres of luxurious estate-like grounds. The grounds are covered with rose bushes, fountains, year-round greenery, and other beautiful scenery often found in a park or botanical garden. The area is so peaceful that residents could easily forget that they are just 5 minutes from the SouthPark Mall area and 10 minutes from Uptown. Rosewood is ideal for busy professionals and retirees who desire a low-maintenance home with as many conveniences as one can find in a major city. Young families will appreciate the community’s proximity to top schools.
Rosewood offer residents privacy, as well as 24-hour security. The formal gardens and walking trails are perfect for enjoying a beautiful Carolina day, while the gourmet coffee bar, fitness center with massage and personal training services, laundry service, and 5-star concierge are perfect for people on the go. Other amenities include a pool with patio, tennis court, a lounge, a meeting room, trash chutes, and private storage for each residence.
Despite its recent boom in population and business, Charlotte’s history actually dates back to its founding in 1768. Named for Queen Charlotte of England, settlers began farming the fertile land, but the discovery of gold in 1799 led to the first official gold rush on American land. It did not last long. The fortune-seekers eventually left for California, though many people stayed in the city to continue farming the area’s two main crops: cotton and tobacco.
After the Civil War, the railroads began to roll into town and with them came a new industry. Over the next few decades, Charlotte became one of the biggest textile producers in the world. By the 1970s, Charlotte was well on its way to becoming the major banking center that it is today, and over the next few decades the city saw an explosion in population and business opportunities. The Rosewood residences were built in 2008.
