2 Oak Knoll Terrace, Pasadena, CA 91106
The Samuel C Fertig House, renamed Knoll House in 1971 by its then owner, Mrs Virginia Steele Scott, was originally built in 1916 and designed by preeminent architect Myron Hunt. The property, already architecturally significant, rose to unparalleled prominence in 1973 with the addition of the Gallery/Museum designed by modernist architects Ladd & Kelsey. The structure was, from its inception, much more than a gallery. Encompassing over 20,000 square feet, it contains multiple living spaces, a 46-seat movie theater, poker room, tiki lounge, 2 commercial elevators and full conference center. Recently, over the course of seven years, the two main structures totaling 32,644 square feet of living space were updated and restored preserving the 100+ year-old craftsmanship and materials used by Mr. Hunt and Mr. Kaufmann, while providing commercial grade systems throughout the property. Now spread over 2.4 landscaped and gated acres, both structures have been repurposed to provide the highest level of lifestyle, entertaining and at-home work conveniences for today's ever changing environment. Together, the living spaces afford a lifestyle unmatched by any property in Southern California. **Features: The property is fully enclosed with two automatic gates and a secure pedestrian gate. The main house has a five-car garage with a motor court. Additional security measures in place include cameras, an alarm system, and other privacy features to be disclosed in-person.
