Located along Pasadena’s storied Millionaire’s Row, Offenhauser’s Trianon townhouses blend elements of Late Regency, with subtle hints of New Formalism and Neoclassical design. Offenhauser’s ability to maximize space through volume, height, and width is evident in the townhouses of The Trianon. Moreover, this style, and his influence on Southern California’s built environment through his interpretation of European vernacular design, came to define much of his body of work from the 1960s onward. The footprint of the complex and its formal gardens follow the tenets of quadrangle landscape architecture and pay homage to eighteenth-century designers such as Ange-Jaques Gabriel. Rather than having a straight path down the center of the complex, The Trianon’s brick-clad walkways and diamond-shaped raised planter beds are designed to invoke thought and conversation through a didactic process that draws people into conversations of art, architecture, and design. Offenhauser then brings the same ideas into the interior of the two-story townhouse. Each room of the house looks out to the gardens and walkway or, as is the case with the formal dining room and kitchen, looks onto the private, gated garden patio with its decades-old trees and plantings. The oversized living room has finely-grained oak paneling and a monolithic, hand-carved marble fireplace mantle and surround, finished with an ornately carved, crested back. Similarly, the downstairs bedroom or den is clad in heart pine paneling which is a perfect accompaniment to the parquet floors throughout the first level of the house. There are two, en suite bedrooms on the second floor. The large, primary suite has a fireplace, a private balcony overlooking the courtyard, a walk-in closet, a dressing room, and a separate tub and shower. The guest bedroom has parquet floors and overlooks the courtyard. This en suite setting has a three-quarter bathroom with a shower and dressing area. There is also a basement in the unit where the washer and dryer are located and the extra storage space in the basement is a welcome addition. The property comes with two, assigned carport spaces, each with two storage closets.
