Plumpton Place
The original house dates back to the 16th century and had fallen into disrepair by the 20th century. The then owner of Country Life magazine, Edward Hudson, commissioned Sir Edward Lutyens in 1927 to refurbish the property that restored the fašade of the original building with added extras. Lutyens also designed the grounds enclosing the building within a series of lakes accessible only by a bridge. The building is currently owned by an American Tom Perkins who was briefly married to author Danielle Steel. Up until 1985 it was the home of former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
