This grand dame in Pasadena's fancy Oak Knoll neighborhood was designed by the illustrious and industrious Myron Hunt, architect of the Huntington library, the Ambassador Hotel, and the Rose Bowl. Located just down the block from the former personal residences of two other noted architects, Garrett Van Pelt and Hunt's one-time partner Elmer Grey, the 1912 English Tudor Revival was commissioned by Amelia Seibert, a woman described in the old-timey Los Angeles Herald as "a wealthy eastern tourist who owns a string of department stores." Per the listing, the 8,742 square foot house features six bedrooms, five and a half baths, formal dining room, library, sunroom, oak-paneled walls, numerous fireplaces of marble, mahogany, oak, and Batchelder tile, a butler's pantry, an exercise room, a game room, a two-bedroom guest house with kitchen, an outdoor kitchen/patio area with pizza oven, a swimming pool, and a three-car garage. Sited on a 1.17 acre lot, it's listed at $7.188 million.
