The 1924-built Georgian Colonial Estate in the northeast section of L.A. County has six bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, a formal dining room that can fit 22 people, a library, a wine cellar and a media room.

Rising Realty, led by Nelson and his son, Chris, have had a major hand in shaping Downtown’s development. Most recently, their company paired with Tom Barrack’s Colony NorthStar to purchase One California Plaza for a whopping $460 million. The firm famously renovated the PacMutual building before leasing it up and selling it for a hefty profit.

Nelson Rising, who was a developer of the U.S. Bank Tower, formerly chaired the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.
