Villa Sorriso, Sonoma

The sale of the late Robin Williams’ 650-acre wine country estate known as ‘Villa Sorriso’ has closed escrow with a contract price of $18.1 million, nearly $17 million below its original list price.

Located in the mountains between Napa and Sonoma, the 20,000 square foot Limestone villa includes three Kevlar wrapped safe rooms, a legitimate wine cellar and an Alder paneled theater.

Also on the estate: a 3,000 square foot property manager’s residence; a 24-acre vineyard; a grove of 100 olive trees; an array of 36 solar panels producing 300-400 amps; and a spring fed pond.

The property was originally listed for $35 million in 2012, reduced to $29.9 million in early 2014, and then reduced to $25.9 million after Williams passing. The asking price was reduced an additional $3 million to $22.9 million six months ago.

    What a bargain. I always felt a little guilty for leaking this sale to the press, but it was only a matter of time before the story made it out there.

    [Editor’s Note: We’ve actually been tracking the sale since the property went into escrow back in October but had been holding off on publishing until we could confirm the final contract price.]

      By sale, I meant the property hitting the market. I wasn’t aware of the actual sale. Sorry for causing the confusion.

    “Kevlar wrapped safe rooms”
    Is this an indication of paranoia, or for the safe-keeping of contemporary art or 18th century French silver or medieval illuminated manuscripts?

      Probably the result of a clever snow job by a friend of the architect.

      Rich people aren’t immune to being convinced to buy something they don’t need.
