Try this: http://www.freecsstemplates.org/.

The grandaddy of them all, Open Source Web Design.
Layout Gala is a great site for building a basic layout and takes a lot of the hard work out of getting a stylesheet started. If you still want to add some of your own design elements then I highly recommend it.
I also like A List Apart, but this might require more effort than you’re interested in giving 🙂
I really love the 960 Grid System – very easy to use, includes tutorials and demos, and works well cross-browser.
Try http://themeforest.net/, has some nice layouts. I purchased a couple of the Admin offerings for use CRM-style internal sites.
If you’d like to start a couple of notches above scratch, but understand exactly what’s going on, try Blueprint. Make sure to include the “typography” stylesheet for easy spiffup.
http://webhost.bridgew.edu/etribou/layouts/skidoo/ — Contains some basic templates that are far from completion. http://www.glish.com/css/ contains some similar templates, but with different syntax.
Also, if none of the answers here help you, http://www.alvit.de/handbook/ has a ridiculous number of CSS-related links.
A resource I refer to quite often is the 40 CSS Layouts site. It gives you the groundwork of several different fixed, flexible, and liquid layouts.
Try Drupal, the Open Source Content Management System’s themes. Most of the themes are very high quality and can be modified for other projects as easily as anything else.
It’s a bit off your question, but aside from using good resources (guides, blogs, etc.), when I see something I like – a nice style somewhere – I just go to the code and see how it’s done.
Firebug’s inspect mode helps in locating relevant code quickly.
