I received E-Mail that said:

Last summer I visited the home of Robinson Jeffers, the famous poet, in Carmel, Calif. He settled there in 1914 and with the aid of a stonemason, built a stone house. Later, on his own, in the 1920s, he built a tower (called the Hawk Tower) with stones he hauled up from the beach. Using a block-and-tackle on a scaffold, he raised the tower to a height of 40 feet. The first two floors have small rooms. Here Jeffers was to write much of his later poetry.

Later, with his sons, he built another stone house and stone walls. While not a castle, it has many castle-like features.
