Villa Sorriso, the 640-acre estate commissioned by comedian Robin Williams in the early 2000s,is back on the market this month. After an attempt to sell the property in 2012 for $35 million failed to bring in buyers, the actor took the 20,000-square-foot home off the market. It is now back on for $29.9 million and is being represented by Cyd Greer and Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews International.
The home has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and six half bathrooms, an oak-paneled library and, of course, a tiered-seating home theater. (Just the place for countless rewatchings of “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Good Will Hunting.”) As befits a mansion located in the middle of a working farm with 18 acres of olives and grapes, the estate has both a climate-controlled wine cellar and a horse barn. Other outdoor features include a 65-foot infinity pool, a wading pool and a spring-fed pond for bass fishing.
The limestone, Italiante-style mansion’s name means “Villa of Smiles.” Surely, the actor (who has been public about his money woes) will be smiling if he can find a buyer this time around.
