No More Malibu Castle Kashan

Looks like a fire has destroyed Castle Kashan in Malibu:

"Flames consumed the landmark Castle Kashan, a stately fortress-like home with turrets and arched windows, as about a dozen residents watched from across a street. Chunks of brick fell from the exterior of the burning building overlooking the coast."

If you have taken the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles to Malibu, you have probably noticed this castle house in the distance off to the right. In recent years it has been rented out for special events. www.malibucastlekashan.com

This castle was Originally Known as “Hodge Castle”, as it was built by (My) family practitioner Dr Tom Hodges in the 1970s. Dr Hodges was a Korean War Army Doctor, who had a family practice clinic in Malibu up until his retirement in the early 1980s. I remember going to the house/castle- warming party in my early teens. Being before HMOs, I guess Doctors could still afford castles back then; The castle has been featured on a few TV shows, including the Rockford Files.
