The Crescent Bay Castle was built in 1926 by French
architect, Jean Egasse for his personal residence and studio. Constructed at the height of the
"Storybook" era, Egasse utilized local rock, clinker brick and heavy
timbers in creating a whimsical piece of art that provided adequate space for
his office as well as a fine residence for his family.
Egasse was born in France and spent the last 10 years of his
life designing what have become landmark Laguna buildings. Many of his designs
have become a very important part of its identity.
