Robin Williams’ Napa Valley Estate Sells for $18.1M—Nearly Half His Original Asking Price of $35M

The Napa Valley estate of Robin Williams has finally sold for $18.1 million, going for about half of what the late, great actor originally listed the property for in 2012.

Williams had slashed the price by $5 million from $35 million just months before his tragic death in August 2014. The home was re-listed twice after his death before the $18 million offer was accepted.

Called Villa Sorriso, translated to Villa of Smiles, the 640-acre parcel features a 2003-built, three-story, 20,000-square-foot main house with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and five half baths. There is also a four-bedroom guesthouse.

Villa Sorriso’s grounds also hold a winery with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc varietals, over 100 olive trees for producing olive oil, a tennis court, a seven-stall horse barn to pair with riding trails, and a spring-fed pond.

Other luxuries of the mansion include a 12-seat movie theater, an oak-paneled library, a wine cellar, a bell tower, a billiards room, and the piece de resistance, a 65-foot long infinity pool complete with a wading pool and hot tub.

When the property was initially listed, Williams stated he could no longer afford to maintain the lavish house as he was downsizing his lifestyle.

The man who fellow comedian Billy Crystal called “the brightest star in our comedy galaxy,” ended his life after years of battling depression and coming to terms with his recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease.
