Last year my wife, Leslie, and I, after 20 years of marriage and five houses -- Cape Cod bungalow, brick Colonial, one-level ranch, a spec contemporary and a 6,000-square-foot McMansion -- downsized into a 2,200-square-foot farmhouse within walking distance of Washington, D.C.'s East Falls Church Metro station. The house was built in 1892. The year Grover Cleveland was elected president for the second time, Sherlock Holmes began solving mysteries, Thomas Edison patented the telegraph, and the rules of basketball were established, walrus-mustachioed George Crossman was finishing up construction on a cross-gabled two-story house for his new bride, Nellie, on 65 acres in what was then the farming region of Arlington, Va., not far from the Potomac River and the nation's capital.
