Rowington
Local life

The Elephant & Castle is a stylish, modern home with six bedrooms, open-plan kitchen, stunning dining room and separate annexe, all set in 1.16 acres of gardens in the heart of Rowington. The former Inn, dating back to 1783, has been completely re-modelled, extended and re-furbished by a team of craftsmen and interior designers. The property is available with no chain.

The downstairs offers flexibility. The original stone floors contrast beautifully against the white walls and beams. The large dining room has room for a huge dining table where you could host wonderful family lunches or dinner parties. A chic, country style kitchen is a light and large central hub of the home. Off the kitchen is a large utility room with lots of storage and Aga. 

The sitting room is subtly split into two areas; a formal sitting area and a seating around the fire. There are windows looking out to every direction and a there is a large fireplace with log burner. 

The other space downstairs is a separate annexe with bedroom and en-suite bathroom and cellar below. There is a private door making this an ideal space for a nanny, Granny or teenager wanting their own space.

The name Elephant & Castle is believed to be derived from the original publican who used the Coventry coats of Arms as a pub sign. At the end of the 19th Century, Jane Ryland, of Shakespeare Hall, Rowington, was a regular church goer and her route to St Lawrence Church was via Queens Drive and past The Elephant. She was not impressed with the drinking going on as she passed and so decided to buy the Inn and close it down. In return, she set up the Working Mens Club for the men of the village.

    Upstairs are five beautiful bedrooms. Our favourite has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and Velux windows. This room has an interesting past and we will tell you all about it when you come to look around. All the bedrooms have been re-decorated. Two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and there is a family bathroom serving the other rooms.

    The property has been fully re-wired, new plumbing has been installed, the walls have been insulated and the windows replaced with double glazing. The house is warm and cosy and fully up to date.

    Outside is a building that has been renovated and used as a bar and games room. It has its own water and electricity supply, a separate oil tank from the main building and has been refurbished to full living standards. It could be used for all kinds of things from gym to office, playroom to games room.

    There is a paddock at the bottom of the formal garden making his an ideal property for horse lovers. The views from the back of the home, across the countryside are beautiful.
