For those who find Truman Capote's Heights house still out of reach post-PriceChop but would like something with an older, literary feel, let's journey a little ways down Willow Street. This 1860s house is 47 Willow Street, a brownstone 6BR with brokerbabble that's all about the original detail?even when it wants the buyer not to be. "Bring your vision and your contractor to renovate the kitchen and bathrooms," the listing demands. The need for renovation puts the price at $2.45 million. What to keep, perhaps: the marble mantles, the stained glass skylights, and the backyard with cherry tree and ivy.
