2 Oak Knoll Terrace, Pasadena, CA 91106 (MLS # 23246699)
American classicism expressed in residential architecture- resplendently set upon multiple acres of gardens, recreation areas and a resort-like Pool Pavilion. A meticulous 7-year restoration reveals master work by esteemed architects Myron Hunt and Gordon Kaufmann supported by high tech modern amenities expected in today's finest homes. Modernist architects Ladd & Kelsey designed a commercial grade Museum on site to house a priceless art collection, and so much more. Encompassing over 20,000 square feet, it currently contains multiple living spaces, a 46-seat movie theater, poker room, tiki lounge, 2 commercial elevators and full conference center. Both structures have been repurposed to provide the highest level of lifestyle, entertaining and at-home work conveniences for today's ever-changing environment. Once known as the Samuel C Fertig House then renamed Knoll House in 1971 by its then owner, Virginia Steele Scott, the main residence was originally built in 1916 and designed by preeminent architect Myron Hunt. Originally sited on five contiguous lots totaling 10.3 acres, the original 2-story, 16 room residence was later expanded by leading architect of the time, Gordon B Kaufmann. To ensure consistency, Peter Hall acted as the contractor for both builds. The property rose to unparalleled prominence in 1973 with the addition of the Virginia Steele Scott Gallery by modernist architects Ladd & Kelsey, who had just designed the new Pasadena Art Museum (Norton Simon Museum). The structure, intended to showcase Mrs. Steele's extensive art collection, was, from its inception, much more than a gallery and remains so today. Together, both living spaces afford a lifestyle unmatched by any property in Southern California.
