I have found a third example of a re-worked schoolhouse to add to my inspiration collection. The first was the former home of garden designer Paul Bangay, St Ambrose Farm at Woodend. The second was interior designer Stuart Rattle's country retreat at nearby Musk. This one is in the same part of the world in the Mt Macedon area and has been converted into a holiday rental.
Rochford Lodge is an old brick building with separate Principal's house.
Though the school house is quite a different style of building, is still intriguing to see how other people interpret the spaces.
