The Knoll House, Myron Hunt and Gordon Kaufman AIA 1916, is the largest single family residence in Pasadena, quietly situated on a private cul-de-sac in the prestigious Langham Hotel area. This 100+ year-old, architecturally significant masterpiece was expertly designed by some of California's most renowned architects. Spanning 32,000 SqFt, this trophy estate has been proudly restored for over seven years to maintain its' architectural integrity, seamlessly blending modern luxury and old world charm, including original hand-carved moldings, book-matched wood paneling, 9 wood-burning fireplaces and original floors. Custom black and white marble flooring, imported from Italy, is splashed throughout the grand entry met with soaring ceiling heights and Quantum wood windows carried throughout. The first floor of the main home includes a grand living room with herringbone hardwood floors and Paonazzo marble fireplace, enriched wood paneled library with a coal and wood burning fireplace, formal dining with Zuber's Passage Italian scenic wallpaper and marble fireplace continuing into the chef's kitchen with two oversized islands, custom cabinetry, and Wolf and Miele appliances, breakfast room with plaster ceiling and swing doors into the butler's pantry, a fully restored English Pub, and family room. The primary suite, on the upper level, offers dual marble clad en-suites, and dual closets with onyx counters and extensive storage. This level is complete with additional bedrooms and a gift wrapping room. A brick wall and wood beamed wine cellar, with the capacity for 2,500 bottles, is located in the basement. There are six secret doors in the estate, some leading to commercial-grade elevators that serve from the main house to the gallery. Ideal for the most discerning art collector or entertainer, the gallery dramatically showcases a two story atrium, full Tiki Bar with hand-carved Tikis and a custom Tiki fountain, movie theatre with acoustical panels large enough to accommodate 46 people, game room, billiards rooms, poker room, full guest apartment, and gym connected by a spiral staircase. Over 13,000 SqFt of hand set reclaimed bricks pave the circular driveway providing access through custom electric, wrought iron gates securely enclosing all 2.5 acres of this perfectly manicured property.
