Plumpton Place, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens (designer and builder of a part of New Delhi in India), is an Elizabethan manor house in Plumpton village, East Sussex, England. The original structures on the property were constructed in the mid-16th century. The separate entrance is made of two cottages connected by a porch with a long path leading to the main house.  The manor house has six bedrooms, five en-suite bathrooms, a tennis court and its own moat.  Jimmy Page bought the house in 1972 and sold it ten years later.  His studio was located on the upper floor level.
