Donald Nielsen found this parcel in 1956 in Glendale’s Verdugo Woodlands and knew that this was where he wanted to build a house for his young wife. Being an engineer, Mr. Nielson worked closely with his Swedish contractor, Einar Nelson, to build their dream home. Clearly that dream was realized as the Nielsens have lived here happily ever since.
Once inside, you understand why they stayed all these years. The floor plan is open and inviting with over 1,900 square feet of livable space. The formal entry opens to the formal living and dining rooms which have wood floors, custom teak trim and a beautiful fireplace. The large kitchen is well designed and has a quaint breakfast area that looks out to the rear grounds. The master retreat has a large master bedroom, a master bath, an office, and a walk in closet as well as a second closet. There is also a large family room with wood floors and another warm fireplace.
The rear yard is quite nice with pampered gardens, a flat play yard, and a place for outdoor entertaining under the canopy of a grand tree. Just a few additional features include: a newer roof, updated copper plumbing, several updated dual pane windows, and a two car detached garage.
