Land once home to Malibu’s Castle Kashan up for sale

The site that once housed Castle Kashan in Malibu is on the market for $16 million, according to online listings.

The famed 10,000 square-foot castle, owned by philanthropist and socialite Lilly Lawrence, once stood regally on a hill above the Civic Center, but was destroyed in the 2007 Malibu Canyon fire.

Before the fire, Lawrence frequently rented out the castle for weddings and events. The estate was originally built by Thomas Hodges in the 1970s with shows such as “The Rockford Files” filming at the site.

After the fire, Lawrence promised to rebuild, but those plans never became reality in the five years since the fire.

At the time of the fire, the 2.51-acre property was on the market for $17 million. After the fire, the land was leveled  and the property is now a flattened piece of land waiting to be developed.

“Previous structure(s) has been demolished and removed and some building has taken place including sinking casons, laying the foundation, pool footing, basement, etc. Plans and permits are available to the new owner,” the listing states.


Calls to Lawrence and her representatives for comment were not immediately returned.

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
