To everybody’s horror, the great actor committed suicide by hanging himself with a belt. Robin Williams was found dead in his bedroom at his Tiburon home by his personal assistant just before noon on the morning of August 11, 2014. Lately the actor had been going through severe alcoholism and drug addiction and unfortunately depression seems to have won over his comedic spark.
In April 2014 the late actor listed Villa Sorriso at $30 million, because he could no longer afford it. Nestled in the Mayacamas Mountains, the 20,000-square-foot Villa of Smiles sits on a 640-acre Napa Valley Ranch and comprises five bedrooms, a wine cellar, tennis courts, a seven-stall horse barn, horse and hiking trails as well as 18.4 acres of vineyards. Williams himself contributed to the design of the luxury digs at the beginning of the millennium, when he built it. Details of the listing also include a theater with 12 seats, a 65-foot pool with infinity edges and also a hot tub. The bell tower offers all-around views of the property and the spring-fed pond is stocked with Bass. The owner would have his own on-site help as there is a caretaker/guest house on the estate.
Anyone interested in producing and trading wine could be a prospective buyer. The estate could also be the dream retreat of an affluent buyer who owned a private jet and chopper, as it is only a 10-minute flight to the Napa airport.
