In 1929 the distinguished Los Angeles architect Paul Williams designed this English Castle for racehorse owner Jack Atkins. Located overlooking the Arroyo Seco it had commanding views of the San Gabriel Mountain Range and the City of Pasadena.


In 1985 Glen Hampton garden designs was contacted by the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and asked to restore the original cascade, fashioned after the one at Chatsworth House in England. The cascade had been inoperative for decades. Landscape Designer Glen Hampton restored the original falls; added a fountain to the lower basin; placed bronze cranes and planters as accents; installed garden lighting; and brought in over 3500 colorful perennials to complete the restoration.


Sadly Atkins Castle was totally destroyed by fire in 2005. As of this writing the cascade remains once again inoperative.
