Ensconced within a 1.41-acre lot in the Crown City’s posh Oak Knoll district, this stately manor has served as the Pasadena Showcase House of Design on two occasions, the first in 1993, and the second in 2015. Completed in 1910, the English Tudor-influenced Craftsman (or Craftsman-influenced English Tudor) was commissioned by Milwaukee businessman John V. Eliot and designed by French-born architect Fernand Parmentier.
The estate consists of a 9,422-square-foot main house, plus a 2,600-square foot carriage house with an upstairs apartment that once housed the chauffeur and coachman of the house’s former occupants. Its exterior features include many mature trees, gardens, pool, Koi pond, and a wisteria arbor, while the interior’s details, per the listing, include “mahogany beams, moldings and unique cast plaster ceilings, horizontal bands of windows, a broad front porch, a grand fireplace with stunning Greuby tile in the entry, extensive built-in cabinetry, and stained-glass windows.” Asking price is $13.8 million.
