In 1907, a San Francisco attorney bought a plot of land on the craggy bluffs of what is now Pacifica, California, and hired architect Charles MacDougal to design an earthquake/fire-proof home. What he got was a castle.
By 1959, when contractor Sam Mazza bought the building, it had been used as a restaurant and a speak-easy named Chateau LaFayette, a site for Red Cross events and a communications center for the U.S. Coast Guard. Mazza began a series of much-needed repairs. Later, the Sam Mazza Foundation was formed to continue the restoration and maintenance of the building.
Delighted to find a castle to work on so close to home, Wooden Window created perfect-to-match casement, transom and double-hung windows for installation throughout this historic structure.
