Home & Property
Comic actor Robin Williams, who stars on the sitcom The Crazy Ones, is taking some trims in his real estate portfolio.
First he sold a house in the Hollywood Hills for $NZ1.1 million, and now he has listed a Napa Valley-area estate at $31.2 million.
The 640-acre estate Williams has on the market was built for him more than a decade ago.
Dubbed Villa Sorriso for "villa of smiles," it sits in the Mayacamas Mountains between the Napa and Sonoma valleys.
The limestone main residence of close to 20,000 square feet features a two-story entry with a rotunda and a bell tower, a billiards room, an oak-panelled library, a 12-seat home theatre, a family room, an elevator, safe rooms and five bedrooms.
Climate-controlled cellars provide storage for art and wine.
The grounds include a 65-foot-long infinity-edge swimming pool, a tennis court, lawns, a guesthouse and a sculpture garden.
The site has a ranch and more than 18 acres of vineyards. There are hiking and horse riding trails, a stable and a spring-fed pond.
DETAILS ON THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS HOME
The Tudor-style house he sold for just over a million NZD is a tidy two-bedroom with a Roaring '20s ambience. The arched front door is accented by painted bricks in a starburst pattern. Interior archways, hardwood floors, high ceilings and built-in bookcases continue the vibe indoors.
The 1318 square feet of living space includes a screening room, an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and 1.5 bathrooms. French doors off the living room open to a walled and gated outdoor space designed for entertaining.
Williams bought the property in 2009 for $857,500.
Funny guy Williams, 62, gained nationwide recognition for his starring role as an alien in Mork & Mindy (1978-82). He went on to star in the films Good Morning, Vietnam (1987), Dead Poets Society (1989) and Awakenings (1990), winning an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting (1997). He will be in the upcoming sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire (1993).
