An Over-the-Top Estate in Los Angeles—With Six Fireplaces, a Tiki Bar, and Its Own Art Museum—Just Came on the Market for a Modest $38.5 Million

The Knoll House is hitting the market. This historic—and, frankly, epic—compound sits in a private cul-de-sac in Pasadena and dates to 1917, when it was built for heiress, art collector, and philanthropist Virginia Steele Scott. According to the three-party listing, the asking price is $38.5 million.

At the time of its construction, Virginia Steele Scott commissioned prominent architect Myron Hunt to design the residence. Later, she tapped Gordon Kaufmann to complete a significant expansion. Between them, Hunt and Kaufmann are celebrated for envisioning some of the most significant architectural landmarks in Southern California, including the Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Palladium, Rose Bowl, the original Los Angeles Times building, and nearby Huntington Library. Kaufmann is also famed for his work on the Hoover Dam in the 1930s.
