The tragic death of comedic genius Robin Williams is a loss for all of us. As we see here, he certainly had superb taste in real estate. We previously featured Villa Sorriso back on Feburary 1, 2012, when the mansion and surrounding vineyard was for sale for $35,000,000. At the time, we did not realize the home was owned by Robin Williams. After his passing, pictures of the home were posted and we knew it looked familiar. Because the home is still for sale and in honor of Robin, our Estate of the Day is dedicated to him.
Villa Sorriso ($30,000,000) spills over the Mayacama Mountains between Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Stucco and limestone envelope close to 20,000 square feet of living space: 5 suites, library, theater, elevator, cellars for art and wine, bridge gallery and viewing tower overlooking the valley. Antique European stone terraces surround pools and sculpture gardens, incomparable vistas beyond. Italianate and elegant, nonetheless a country home because of the beauty and bounty of the land. Vast and varied terrain covering approximately 600 acres and 53 acres accessible via roads and trails throughout, a solar “farm” and lovely natural lake. Olives and world class Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are established. Rare end of road privacy, adjoins thousands of acres of protected open space. This fabulous expanse is beautifully cared for by an onsite manager.
