Robin Williams’ Wine Country Estate Sells For $18.1 MillionJanuary 26, 2016
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.

Wonderful home. Congrats to the new owner.
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.
anybody have any idea if this is a breakeven price?
Robbin William’s joke about this story would not be publishable on this here site. Just sayin’
