Why the New Owner of Robin Williams's Villa of Smiles Estate Is Especially Happy

Jan 25 2016 - 3:37pm

Villa Sorriso, or Villa of Smiles as its late owner, the great comedian Robin Williams [1], called it, has finally sold! Initially listed for $35 million, the breathtaking Napa, CA, estate just sold for $18.1 million. The 20,000-square-foot home built from Portuguese limestone includes a billiards room, an oak-paneled library, a 12-seat home theater, an elevator, climate-controlled cellars, a private tower, and 640 wine country acres, but these features don't come close to competing with the home's outdoor perks. Picture a 65-foot infinity-edge swimming pool, a tennis court, and a guest house, plus private hiking and horse riding trails, a horse barn, and a bass-fishing spot in a spring-fed pond. We have no doubt the home's next owner will cherish this spectacular property as Robin did.

Sure, it looks like Tuscany, Italy, but Robin's California estate is nestled in the Mayacamas Mountains between Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

The massive villa is tiny compared to the 640 acres of land, around 18 of which comprise vineyards.

Who needs art when you have giant windows framing the picturesque landscape?

We can only imagine the caliber of wine being sipped at the dinner parties held in this dining room.

Being cooped up in the kitchen must feel like a treat when you have an adjoining terrace.

A climate-controlled wine cellar is a must for any luxury estate in wine country.

Forget the IMAX experience — we'd be content with an at-home rental if it took place here!

The 650-foot infinity-edge swimming pool looks like something out of the movies.
