According to its listing, this is the first appearance on the market for this Glassell Park residence since it was commissioned in 1940 by someone named Julius Kiss. And hats off to Mr. Kiss and his family, not only on account of their excellent name, but also for maintaining such careful stewardship of their home for the past 70 years. Even Downton Abbey's exacting butler Mr. Carson would be impressed. Located several blocks west of Avenue 42, the two-bedroom, two-bath property features a formal dining room, hardwood and tile floors, French doors, crown molding and wainscoting, lovely vintage tile, built-in storage, two fireplaces, a covered porch, full copper plumbing, mature fruit trees, a kennel, and an artist studio with separate entrance. It's listed at $529,000. This is the second single-owner 1940s house to hit the market this week.
