Robin Williams' home sells for $17m less than it was first listed for

Los Angeles - Robin Williams' Napa Valley estate has sold for $18.1m - $17m less than it was first listed for.

The late star initially put the property up for sale for $35m in 2012 but when it didn't sell the Mrs. Doubtfire actor relisted it for $29.9m in April 2014 - just months before he committed suicide in August 2014 aged 63.

The 650-acre estate's price was cut a few more times and the final last listing price was set at $22.9mn, but the new owners look to have got a great deal as they are reported to have paid just over $18m for the plush property.

Whether the successful buyers have got a bargain or not, they certainly have plenty of features in their new five-bedroom property in California.

There are six full bathrooms in the main house but if you fancy a change of scenery you could always head outside to the four-bedroom guest house for a nap.

Other stunning features include a bell tower, a 12-seat home theatre, lifts to all three floors and a study, where Robin used to read and relax.


According to William Densberger of Pacific Union, who represented the new owners of the "ranch" - which is reportedly what Robin called the place - the buyers are planning to make wine on the property's 18.4 acres of vineyards, The Wall Street Journal reports.
