The California Wine Country estate Robin Williams dubbed “Villa Sorriso,” the “house of smiles,” is on the market as the whole world continues to grieve the death of this pillar of the Bay Area community. Condolences continue to pour in for the multi-talented actor, comedian, philanthropist and humanitarian — from his peers, friends and fans via social media.

Williams’ life touched so many, including me. I had the good fortune of personally knowing this extraordinary man in the ‘70s when he was doing stand-up in Sausalito. I found the award-winning actor and comedian to be authentic, genuine and down-to-earth. My heart goes out to his family at this time of sorrow.

His incredible Napa Valley estate was recently placed on the market for $29.9M. The 20,000 square foot stucco and limestone Italianate features a state-of-the-art movie theater that seats 12; a 65-foot long infinity swimming pool that overlooks the Valley; multiple vineyards; and a bell tower that’s only accessible via a bridge from the master suite. The 5-bedroom estate also has a total of 12 baths and sits on 600+ acres of exquisiteness, including vineyards and a natural lake.
