72 Ravensdowne is a grade II listed house built in classical style in the 1820s. Mostly used as a merchant’s house and family home, in the 1980s it was bought by an order of Catholic nuns and was thus inaccessible to the majority of residents. It was returned to private use in 2016, since when it has been extensively restored and renovated. An important addition is a garden room built in stone, whilst the house has a ‘hidden’ walled garden set between Ravensdowne and the ramparts.
