WARRENTON, Va. -- When Bill Clinton's bus caravan pulled up here yesterday for an "unscheduled" stop that had been planned for three weeks, the notoriously late and habitually wordy president-elect was on time and brief in his remarks.Mr. Clinton's plunge into the crowd for personal greetings was but a pale reminder of the candidate who couldn't leave a hand unshook. Hopes that he would venture down Main Street, where Beth Mooney had taken great pains to put a picture of his wife, Hillary, on the face of a mannequin in the window of her dress shop, were --ed when entourage departed within a half-hour.

For anyone who has ever longed for the charm of an English-inspired country home within Baltimore City, 38 Warrenton Road in Guilford just might be the perfect cup of tea. Built in 1924, this three-story stone and stucco home, embellished with gables and dormers, is open for viewing and priced at $825,000. "All of the houses on this part of the street are good, medium-sized Guilford homes; not overwhelming, not mansions," said listing agent Frank Locke of Chase, Fitzgerald & Co. With a 3,830-square-foot living space, the home has six bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bathroom.
