We all get that New Canaan, Connecticut, feeling from time to time - especially if we're Notting Hill or Primrose Hill types with The Ice Storm on DVD, that is. The sheer heaven of living in a Philip Johnson Fifties glass box on short stilts out there in that wonderfully blank countryside (not so much baggage as, say, Chipping Norton where the grass knows its place and the flowers are well spoken). We know about the glass-box look and we admire it, but if we're living in The Hills, we want to stay there - do we ever! - and practically the only configuration we can get there, the one everyone in that world recognises as social and financial currency, is a tallish, thinnish, biggish terrace house built from London stock brick with a bit of stucco on the front to a slightly degraded Georgian plan 1840-1860.
