My heart wants a two-story, but my knees say "no".

As we are looking to downsize, I keep wishing we could move into a big old two-story house again. But, because I'm starting to have knee issues and we're both getting older and I can't figure out how to "age in reverse", I know a big old two-story is totally impractical. Do any of you older readers live in a two story, and do you long for a ranch? Or have you found ways to adapt? Elevators would be totally out of reach budget-wise for us, and I think even stair lifts are expensive, no?
