In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the listing of Scott's longtime mansion. Currently owned by his surviving corporate entity, the Wescott Christian Center, Inc., the nine-bedroom mansion, at 2 Oak Knoll Terrace in Pasadena, sits on a 2.454-acre parcel, according to public records. Wescott Christian Center is owned by Scott's wife, Melissa Scott.
Built in 1916, the Colonial-style mansion, which is in Pasadena's Oak Knoll neighborhood near the Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa, has nine baths, a center hall floor plan, grand public rooms, a library, a pub, and a finished, 2,000-square-foot basement, according to public records and listing information. The house was desgned by architect Myron Hunt (1868-1952), while architect Gordon Kauffmann designed its expansion, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the property include a terrace, a pool, a garden pavilion, a pool house, and a 20,089-square-foot (according to public records) or 23,000-square-foot (according to listing information) art gallery with a two-story domed atrium and guest quarters that was built in 1973, according to listing information.
To be sure, this isn't the first time this house has gone on the market. It actually first was listed in 2007 for $19,000,000. However, it came back on the market on January 8 at its current asking price.
