Rotherwood Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Sitting on the southeastern outskirts of Greensboro, NC, Rotherwood is a small residential community near undeveloped forest land. A healthy presence of places of worship and small commercial developments offering daily necessities make this a great place for residents interested in being near a big city, while still set apart from it.
While Rotherwood is home to single-family houses in the National architecture style, apartments can be found just outside Rotherwood’s southwestern border.
The intersection of Alamance Church Road and Highway 421 has a large commercial center. Here, Rotherwood residents can buy groceries at Food Lion, meet pharmacy needs at CVS Pharmacy, and take care of car maintenance at Advance Auto Parts, Tom’s Tire and Auto, or Hall Tire & Battery Company.
Rotherwood is near the center of the intersection of several major streets in Greensboro within the 27406 zip code. Willow Road and Alamance Church Road bisect the neighborhood while also creating part of its borders. Its northern boundary includes Bristol Road and the southern line follows Liberty Road across to Perga Court.
Several religious denominations are represented in the Rotherwood area. These include the Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Kingdom Hall for Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Khmer Buddhist Society, all within walking and biking distance of the neighborhood.
Despite being on the edge of the Greensboro city limits, Rotherwood is close to several services making health care and outdoor recreation easily accessible. To the north, the Kindred Hospital Greensboro is a full-scale hospital offering general, emergency and outpatient care services. Gillespie Park is a few minutes to the northwest and is one of two city-run golf courses. The Gillespie Golf Course is named for Revolutionary War Colonel Daniel Gillespie and is open daily from 8:30 A.M. until sunset.
