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.
