    “Newly built brick mansion in . . . England” told me everything I need to know about the house. Obviously it will have a traditional exterior and a nondescript generic interior. Oh look, I’m right. And, we have yet another instance of a new English house with no direct connection between the kitchen and the dining room; it boggles the mind.

      Wow Grrrowler…I could have written that comment!

      That dining room will be used maybe twice a year. It’s just too damn far to schlep all of the trappings of a dinner that far for a simple meal, and then schlep it all back to the kitchen for cleaning. Who would bother?

      And of course, we have the antiseptic WHITE interior.

    Outside, it’s dignified and impressive. It’s very nicely done. Inside, it missed the bus. The loggia is woefully inadequate in size and features for outdoor entertaining. Is there a pool? Am I out of line expecting an elevator in a multi-level $12 million home? A decent 3-stop lift only runs about $30-40 grand.
