David Wallace’s house from ‘The Office’ sparks $6M bidding war

Michael Scott isn’t the only one staking out David Wallace’s house.

This colonial six-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion spanning 6,300-square-feet in Pasadena, Calif. sparked a bidding war, with competing offers escalating above its $6 million asking price, according to listing broker George Penner of Deasy Penner Podley.

“We had significant interest and the property is now in escrow — over the asking price with multiple offers,” Penner told The Post. 

The home’s exterior was immortalized on television in NBC’s “The Office,” but it’s notable even without the memory of Wallace, played by Andy Buckley. In the episode, his character pitches a toy vacuum called “Suck it” to Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, while they soak in Wallace’s hot tub.

At the Pasadena house, a red brick stairway leads to a white-covered entry and a black door flanked by windows and topped by a semicircle transom window. The front of the house has eight sets of windows with black shutters which emit a warm, comforting light, according to Realtor.com listing photos.

Maybe “The Office” producers should have featured the inside of this pristine house, too.

The entry to the house has hardwood floors and a grand staircase leading to a second floor. Nearly every room in the house has wainscoting (decorative molding on the bottom half of the wall) and French doors, inviting natural light into the house. 

The living room has a stone fireplace — but no drum set, which Wallace’s son had set up in the show — and the formal dining room has de Gournay Chinoiserie wallpaper, pocket doors and a large crystal chandelier.

The kitchen, where Wallace would like to make peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches, has white cabinets and black granite countertops covering a bar, generous counter space, two kitchen islands and a lounging room.

Attached is a breakfast nook and a butler’s pantry. There is also a second staircase, originally built for servants’ access in 1925.

The family room has a huge built-in mustard yellow bookcase and a unique tiled fireplace.

The library has dark wood walls, a fireplace, built-in display shelving and a wet bar.

Upstairs, large windows shine light onto hardwood floors, crown moldings and white wainscoting against pewter walls. French doors open to an office with a balcony.

Bedrooms have gorgeous bay windows, fireplaces, built-in shelving and large windows.

In “The Office,” David Wallace tells Dwight his house is 5,000-square-feet. This house is actually 6,300-square-feet.realtor.com

Outside, the 0.8-acre lot has a red brick deck that extends to a large modern pool with a hot tub — a much nicer hot tub than the one David Wallace owns in “The Office.” There is a guest house, a three-car garage and numerous sculpted garden areas.

The backyard appears to be the filming location used when Jim Halpert, played by John Krasinski, and David Wallace play basketball in season three episode 18. It’s also the same episode Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson, and Michael Scott arrive hours early to Wallace’s company party and announce Scott’s relationship with Jan Levinson, played by Melora Hardin.

The house was built in 1925, designed by Lucille W. Luckhardt. It last sold for $1.9 million in 2000, according to Realtor.com.

“The Office” has left Netflix for Peacock streaming services, but fans without Peacock are still following the series on Pam Beesly actress Jenna Fischer and Angela Martin actress Angela Kinsey’s podcast, “Office Ladies.”
