Is Cotswold an upper middle class neighborhood? There is a house for rent on Sharon Amity Road that we're thinking about (we're from out of town)? Is that a busy street? It's near the Cotswold Village Shops.

Thanks any help would be appreciated!

Yes, Sharon Amity is busy. Cotswold is good; but borders on a not so good area. It's convenient to a lot of things, but not too close to either of the interstates.

This is old Charlotte: old money and very established. Very safe area and on the outskirts of the Queens area. It's centrally located and quick commute to downtown. I'd say Sharon Amity is pretty busy, but what road in Charlotte isn't? The speed limit is either 35 or 45mph and it's 4 lanes.

Cotswold is a great place to live. The shops at Cotswold are small but good. That said,
I don't think I'd want to live on Sharon-Amity - the traffic is heavy and at places - in spite of the speed limit - quite fast.

I agree w/ Barb . . . but if you are only renting and planning on buying later- and found a nice house w/ decent rent . . . you can probably manage for a while w/ the traffic . . . and keep looking for the house to buy.

Excellent advice - if the rent is right, just deal with the road noises until you can buy. I lived in Cotswold on Sharon Amity myself a few years ago, near the railroad tracks, and it was no big deal. I got a much better rent ($950) by doing this. And remember, the traffic is not heavy all day long, only during rush hours. The police patrol the area pretty regularly to enforce the speed limit too.
