If We Lived There: We’d paint each one of those squares a different colour and turn it into a 24/7 disco.
The House: A beautiful English manor called Stokesay Court. Built in 1889, it’s out in Shropshire somewhere.
The Movie: Haunting war drama in which a lie spirals out of control, and leads to James McAvoy heading out to war, never to see the love of his life ever again.
If We Lived There: We’d walk around in our finest frock all day long, draped in jewellery, and eat nothing but caviar.
North By Northwest (1959)
The House: The Vandamm House. Not to be confused with the house of Jean-Claude Van Damme. Sadly it doesn’t actually exist, but you could build a copy - we're sure there's a blueprint lying around Hollywood somewhere.
The Movie: Celebrated as one of Alfred Hitchcock’s finest, Cary Grant stars as an innocent man mistaken for someone who wants to release government secrets to the world. It ends with that famous Mount Rushmore stand-off.
If We Lived There: It would either cure us of our debilitating fear of heights, or drive is crazy.
Meet The Fockers (2004)

The Movie: Comedy sequel, in which poor Focker Gaylord (Ben Stiller) has to introduce his family to his fiancée’s rabble – with belly-rolling results.
If We Lived There: We’d pretend we were Willy Wonka – doesn’t that look like the kind of place he’d live if evicted from the chocolate factory?
What Lies Beneath (2000)

The Movie: Creepy ghost story in which Michelle Pfeiffer is haunted by a spook when she moves into her new home. Meanwhile, has her scary neighbour really murdered his wife?
If We Lived There: We’d get an exorcist in pronto – you can never be too careful.
The House: Sitting in Atlanta, Georgia, this abode doubles as Bill Murray’s crib in Zombieland . In reality, it belongs to ‘Big Poppa’, who was apparently formerly married to Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.
The Movie: Hilariously tongue-in-cheek zombie flick that follows a quartet of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world that’s fallen at the feet of ravenous flesh-munchers.
If We Lived There: We’d probably get lost for days and end up crying in a corner until the maid rescues us.
Gone With The Wind (1939)
The House: Twelve Oaks, a once stunning town house.
The Movie: Sweeping epic based on Margaret Mitchell’s novel, set against the backdrop of the American civil war.
If We Lived There: We’d need to spend a good decade or so returning it to its former glory (it burned down in the 1950s), but we reckon we can get a ruin for a heck of a discount.
The House: Super-cool, super-stylish digs owned by the Cullen family of vampires. In real life, it’s owned by Nike footwear designer John Hoke.
The Movie: Faint-inducing adaptation of Stephenie Meyers’ first Twilight novel, starring dreamboat Robert Pattinson as a twinkly good vampire who doesn’t eat people – unless they really deserve it. Which is why he refuses to – uh – eat Bella, who bites her lip a lot in response.
If We Lived There: We’d hire a CSI team to find all of R-Pattz fingerprints throughout the house, then frame them. We're odd like that.
The House: Beautiful timber-frame American home situated in Whittier, California. Nice garden, too.
The Movie: Canny teen update of Rear Window , in which Shia LaBeouf’s ASBO nuisance is under house arrest when he spots his neighbour behaving weirdly. Is he a closet murderer?
If We Lived There: We’d sit on the porch every evening playing the banjo and drinking Duff.

If We Lived There: We’d invite Matthew Broderick over for dinner.
The House: A rambling near-castle called the Parkwood Estate, located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.
The Movie: Bryan Singer’s first X film, and the one that kicked off the current trend in turning comic books into movies. Singer’s sequel, released three years later, brilliantly upped the stakes.
If We Lived There: We’d be sorely disappointed if we didn’t find Cerebro there.
Sleepless In Seattle (1993)
The House: A floating home, which sounds all kinds of magical, doesn’t it? This one’s on Lake Union near the University of Washington.

If We Lived There: We’d give those bushes a good trimming.

Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
The House: Head of operations for SPECTRE villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
The Movie: The seventh James Bond film and the last to star Sean Connery. It’s based on the book of the same name, and has Bond impersonating a diamond smuggler. Jill St. John provides cleavage.

The House: The elegant home of pimp Pierce Patchett, known in the real world as Lovell Health House, which can be found in Los Feliz, LA.
The Movie: Based on James Ellroy’s classic crime thriller, following the LAPD in the 1950s, whose force is riddled with corruption.
If We Lived There: We’d invite Banksy over and let him let rip on those clean white walls.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
The House: Known as the Sheats/Goldstein residence, designed by American architect John Lautner and situated in Benedict Canyon.
The Movie: Product of sibling moviemakers Joel and Ethan Coen, starring a never-better Jeff Bridges as The Dude, who attempts to track down the kidnapped wife of his rich namesake.

The Movie: Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister is left behind when his entire family take a trip to Paris for the Christmas holidays. To make matters worse, the McCallister house has been targeted by a duo of scrooge-like robbers.
