The core of the Ravenswick house dates from 1740. Significant extensions were added in 1895 to a design by Temple Moore; the mentor of Giles Gilbert Scott. The proposals involved extensive remodeling of the internal layout in order to create luxury accommodation. The works included creating a tropical garden, a swimming pool and gym, conversion of the stables, construction of a new garage block, the construction of two helipads, erecting a substantial tree house within the gardens and constructing a new straw-fired power plant to supply the house with electricity. Eight planning applications were submitted of which all were successful without going to appeal. The anonymity of the client was preserved throughout the process.
