    Robin Williams' Villa of Smiles Finally Sells for $18.1M

    The Napa Valley estate that beloved funnyman Robin Williams built in 2003 and tried to sell before his untimely death in 2014 has finally sold for $18.1 million.

    Williams initially asked $35 million for the 639-acre vineyard property, whose 20,000-square-foot main home he dubbed Villa Sorriso, or Villa of Smiles. The home has been on and off the market since 2012, with multiple price cuts.

    Inspired by the Palladian architectural style of the 1700s, the villa boasts 5 bedrooms, 8 baths, a library, pool room, elevator, and luxurious screening room worthy of an Oscar and Golden Globe winner.

    The home’s elite craftsmanship begins with an imported Portuguese limestone exterior and continues inside with gold leaf and verdigris ceilings in the library and master suite, oak panels with mother-of-pearl inlays, and mosaic glass tile rotundas.

    Villa Sorriso offers climate-controlled wine cellars and a viewing tower for taking in the acreage and its spring-fed pond, tennis court, hiking trails, 7-stall horse barn and olive orchard, plus vineyards of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc varietals.

    Antique European stone terraces overlook the grounds, including a 65-foot infinity edge swimming pool with a wading pool and spa. There’s also a 3,200-square-foot guest house.

    The listing agents were Joyce Rey and Cyd Greer of Coldwell Banker Previews International. The buyers are French winemakers from Chateau Pontet-Canet, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    I think I just would love to have a movie theater room in my home. It looks so fabulous, the only thing missing in this one is a carnival popcorn popper.

    Lovely home, looks exactly like it should be on a vineyard.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    It still hurts to think about that loss. Lovely home.

    i love how the home theater even has a stage curtain.

    look at that pool.

    I like the wine bottles and all the corks tossed in a pile on the side.

    This is beautiful. Every time I remember he's dead, I get sad. He was so so brilliant. Ugh. Anyway, I love his home.
