Stanwick Hall is in appalling condition and faces an incredible battle for survival, which city high-flyers Gina and Simon have taken on. The property is on the `buildings-at-risk’ register which means it is one of the most endangered structures in the country. Together with its restoration problems, long forgotten evidence comes to light showing it was built on the biggest financial scandal of the early 18th century.

Amazing old buildings from across the United Kingdom are beginning to get a new life under new ownership. Individuals, couples and families attempt to restore or remodel them, mostly into homes. Buildings range from mansions and manor houses to decrepit pumping stations, churches and schools. Most of the building have been abandoned for a while and the challenges the renovators face can be quite significant. Research into the architecture of the house is done and put into context alongside a genealogy of its occupants and benefactors. the research gives context to the style and renovations while also giving the buildings a more human element. Caroline Quentin narrates and visits the sites, interviewing the families and commenting on the status of the projects. Historian Dr Kate Williams researches the people associated with the building while Architectural Expert Kieran Long put style, materials and process into historical context. Not all projects are even remotely complete by the end of the episode. Occasionally projects are re-visited later.
