Fit for a CEO

Real estate veteran Nelson Rising’s historic gated residence in La Cañada Flintridge has entered the market for the first time in 32 years, listed by Janice McGlashan of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury for $8.5 million 

Found on almost 2 acres at 435 Georgian Road, the six-bedroom, 11-bath Georgian Colonial estate was designed in 1924 by noted architect Ray Kieffer. Expect 8,000-plus square feet of living space, complete with a spacious living room boasting a fireplace; an elegant formal dining room that seats 22; and a library with built-in bookcases and a fireplace.

Yet other highlights include a solarium, a kitchen with butler’s pantry, a wine cellar and a private office. Outside, the park-like grounds are showcased by mature oak trees, manicured lawns and a rose garden.

Rising is known for building some of L.A.’s most iconic buildings—including the US Bank Tower—as well as new communities such as Silicon Beach’s Playa Vista and Orange County’s Coto de Caza. He also chaired Tom Bradley’s campaigns for mayor and governor, and produced the movie The Candidate starring Robert Redford.
