About the property

Ideal family-friendly neighborhood with fenced yard

This property is part of the Home Collection-Charlotte's Boutique Furnished Residences. We have over 30 different residences all within 2 miles from downtown Charlotte!

4br/2.5ba home on acre lot in prime Cotswold-area neighborhood. The fenced-in back yard with deck is perfect for dogs, there's a basketball goal for the kids and a small neighborhood park is across the street where neighbors gather after work to socialize.

Easy access to Cotswold Shopping Center (1 mile) SouthPark (3 miles), Uptown (5 miles), Ballantyne (10 miles) and the airport (12 miles).

The 1920's bungalow with front porch has been tastefully enlarged to its current 4br/2.5ba size.

Featuring an open floor plan ideal for family gatherings, the living area has 10'+ ceilings, lending a spacious feeling. The formal dining room is the heart of the home, adjacent to the kitchen and living room.

The updated, fully-equipped eat-in kitchen (down to the garlic press!) has stainless appliances including counter-depth refrigeration. A coffee maker, toaster, blender etc. are all included.

A separate laundry room/mud room is located off of the kitchen.

The living room includes a comfortable sectional sofa, and there's a wood-burning fireplace for cooler times of year.

The covered front porch provides a place to relax outdoors, complete with porch swing and rocking chairs.

The home sleeps a total of 8 in beds, with 400-thread-count linens and thick Egyptian cotton towels.

This is an ideal home for a family vacation or for temporary accommodations while renovating or building a home. We host many families just moving to town, and the school district is among the best in the city.

If this apartment is not available for your preferred time period, please ask as we have others available in similarly great locations.

We look forward to hosting you.

About Jim Hock

Please note, we offer weekly and monthly discounts - click 'contact owner' to inquire about our length of stay discounts!

My husband James and I travel extensively and prefer staying in apartments rather than hotels when we travel. Upon our return from a month renting a great place in Istanbul last summer, we decided to offer some of our properties here! We enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to our fair city. I'm a native Charlottean so can help provide a true local's perspective during your visit, which can be especially helpful for people relocating to Charlotte. Our clean and comfortable properties are located near Uptown Charlotte, in very walkable and safe neighborhoods. We try our best to provide a true home away from home. Thanks in advance for your interest and we look forward to hosting you.

Our company, The Home Collection - Charlotte, offers over 30 different residences in Charlotte, NC all within 2 miles of downtown!

Why Jim Hock chose Sherwood Forest

Location, location, location. Our walkable neighborhood provides the ability to live car-free, and when a car is needed, you can get anywhere in the area in minutes. Near both hospitals and close to the Uptown business district, you'll enjoy staying in the center of everything, but in a quiet residential neighborhood. As a native Charlottean, I can help guide you around our city, and can be especially helpful for those relocating to the area.

What makes this house unique

This spacious 4br/2.5ba home is located on an acre lot in prime Cotswold-area neighborhood. The fenced-in back yard with deck is perfect for dogs, there's a basketball goal for the kids and a small neighborhood park is across the street.

A fantastic property in all respects!

Could not have been more pleased with this property. Beautifully appointed inside. Great spaces. Terrific hosting details (wine + food waiting upon our arrival). And outstanding communication with the host / manager. Look forward to renting this property again in the future.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate home is located ten minutes from center city, yet feels like the country. The large front porch was our perfect conversation area until the wee hours of the morning. The two preschoolers were tucked in their trundle beds at the back of the house, and never heard a sound. Birds singing, lush green grass and a tree swing added to the backyard ambiance. Inside the floor plan was perfect for three couples and two children. Decor was comfortable and interesting, described well by a previous reviewer. The owner is very helpful and hospitality is over the top with wine and fixin's for a spaghetti dinner to greet us. We all hope to return soon again.

Cotswold home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Songbirds! Lots of songbirds to enjoy while sitting on the front porch or shady back deck. This neighborhood comes to life in the evening as dozens of families, dog walkers and even a kid's soccer team visit the park across the street. We also saw a fox and a hawk that must nest nearby. You can see from the photos that the home is beautifully appointed with interesting art in every corner and comfortable furniture. The host provided beverages and a few food items that made us feel welcome. What you can't see from the photos is that there is a tree filled view from practically every window. There is a neighbor on only one side of the house. Our stay was very relaxing and comfortable. This house is a mix of historic (lovely glass door knobs through-out) and modern (decor, artwork and up to date baths and kitchen). Everything was VERY clean and in good working order (laundry, outdoor grill, bathrooms, dishwasher and other appliances). Extra linens and paper goods were provided. A small amount of basic toiletries were provided. I highly recommend for anyone coming to Charlotte for work or play. It's an easy drive to Quail Hollow Golf Course.
