If the pre-Civil War houses of the West Village are a bit out of reach, financially, consider this Fort Greene charmer, a detached two-and-a-half-story home "sporting Greek Revival and Italianate architectural details." (Looks like a modified saltbox to us, but hey, we're no broker.) 141 Clermont Avenue comes with its original wide-plank floors intact and lots of wood: beams, floors, lofted bedroom upstairs. It's currently configured as two one-bedroom apartments (squeezed into 1,324 square feet!) but would be easy enough to renovate into a single-family residence. Side bonus: the lot is 25'x100' and it's got a driveway.
