About Steven Nielsen
I grew up in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, two towns over from OOB. Graduated from CEHS 1974. Live in Connecticut now, but still love the whole Portland area and the ocean especially. Salt air is good for the soul.
Steven Nielsen purchased this house in 2003
Why Steven Nielsen chose Old Orchard Beach
There's just something about this house. Warm, cozy, it just says 'relax.' The porch is great -- always a breeze. As a musician, for me the term 'adagio' perfectly decribes this place: in a leisurely manner.
What makes this house unique
Lots of interesting built-ins. Corner lot provides plenty of parking.
