The massive granite structure, built by R. P. Shea, was sold to three Beverly Hills women in 1935. The "castle" boasts many unique design elements that remain untouched after the purchase.
Different photographs taken on the same occasion appear with the article, “Shea Desert Castle Sold,” Los Angeles Times, 25 Mar 1935: 19.
