This glorious house, with its three koi ponds, waterfall, bridges, and rock formations, is incredibly calming and meditative. The design of the garden produces harmony through its views and concepts, and it creates an infinite space within an enclosed area. This authentic, impeccably maintained Chinese garden and house is a sheer delight. The fish are also very friendly; they look right at you and follow you around the perimeter of the pond.

Fort Hill was a British fort during the revolutionary war. While some of the tunnels and munitions are still buried in the hill, the fort no longer stands. In the late twenties, another fort-like structure was built as a home, Fort Hill Castle. This unique urban Mediterranean villa was commissioned by the original owners to resemble a specific castle in Spain. The garden, in full bloom from April through October, features a small pond, 112 varieties of flowering plant and flower, fountains, and statuary. Most of the interior walls in the home are currently painted white.
