The house is equipped with an upstairs attic with a ping-pong table.
Rockwood Farm House was architecturally designed by Richard Stretton and styled by Angela Shaw from Koop Design in 2009. The brief was to design a home that lives in harmony with the environment. The black exterior paint gives camoflauge in summer and warmth in winter. The house has recently been redecorated by Wendy Douglas from Douglas and Douglas. The pallete reflects the changing seasons of the forests and farmlands, from bright green in Summer through orange to dry yellow in winter.
