Late American actor and comedian, Robin Williams’ San Francisco Sea Cliff mansion has been listed for USD25 Million. Best known for his role as an eccentric father in Mrs. Doubtfire and as the voice of Genie in the Disney classic, Aladdin, Williams’ departure in 2014 sent ripples across the world.
Robin Williams stayed in this San Francisco home from the early 1990s until 2010 with his second wife, Marsha Garces Williams — who have two children together, including actress Zelda Williams. Built in 1926, the property offers magnificent views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay.
Designed with an elegant marble facade, terra-cotta roof, columned archways and wrought-iron details, the property is styled to look like an Italian Renaissance Villa. Even though Robin and Marsha have taken the liberty to do an extensive remodeling, the unique and irreplaceable building materials have been preserved.
The first thing one will notice when entering the property is the wide extensive windows that bathe the wide-plank hardwood floors and high-beam ceilings in natural light. The next immediate attention goes to the central staircase that connects all three levels of the 10,598 square foot property and accommodates twenty rooms.
The main bedroom offers vast panoramic sea views and is equipped with a Japanese-style bathroom, a private balcony and a safe room that is obscured with a paneled wall. Secret panels are a running feature on the property as another one in the billiards room leads to a Prohibition-era bar while a secret passageway connects the two bedrooms of the two Williams’ children.
The other rooms found on the property include a cavernous movie theatre with drop-down projector, a kitchen, a butler’s pantry with wet bar, a gym and sauna, a whiskey room, a wine cellar and a one-bedroom guest apartment with its own entrance. Outdoor areas of the mansion include a tiled patio, a firepit, an outdoor BBQ and gardens. The mansion’s price tag ensures that the owner could enjoy the private sanctuary with all its comforts.
Other than its impressive features, the property’s zip code is pride as one of San Francisco’s most beautiful neighbourhood known for large mansions and stunning views. The Williams Sea Cliff mansion is also conveniently located from the Golden Gate Bridge, the Presidio of San Francisco offering 1,500 acres of hiking trails, two beaches, The Legion of Honor Museum and the historic Lincoln Park Golf Course. Owners-to-be will also be able to rub shoulders with neighbours like Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, San Francisco Giants CEO Larry Baer and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.
The listing is held by Steve Mavromihalis at Compass Nor Cal.
