Historic Pasadena Estate Enters the Market for $48 Million

A move-in-ready trophy estate in the SoCal enclave of Pasadena is now on the market for $48 million. The Knoll House is architecturally significant with a locale near the prestigious Langham Huntington Hotel and set within a secluded cul-de-sac.

The approximate 32,300 square foot estate is the city’s largest private estate and boasts seven bedrooms, 2 full baths, 19 partial baths. Old meets new with luxe design features and amenities such as period and custom chandeliers, original detail wood paneling, and smart home technology – plus, Italian marble floors, an expansive basement with wine cellar, and high ceilings.

Built in 1917 by Peter Hall, 2 Oak Knoll Terrace was designed by renowned architect Myron Hunt with an additional expansion of the home in 1927 by Gordon B. Kaufman.

An underground passageway with commercial-grade elevators connects the 12,300 square foot main residence to a fabulous and one-of-a-kind 20,200 square foot entertainment gallery and museum designed in 1973 by noted architects Ladd and Kelsey. The space includes a 38-foot high atrium, an authentic Tiki bar, a 46-seat movie theater, game arcade, card room, gym, conference rooms, lounges, catering kitchen, and a guest apartment.

The exquisite resort-like grounds offer a spectacular pool pavilion with two fireplaces, firepit, barbeque, pizza oven, putting green, swimmer’s pool, and spa.

Located on two and one-half acres, this historic home is represented by Carol Chua and Darrell Done of Coldwell Banker Realty in Pasadena.
