Set on 653 acres, the late comedian’s estate included an olive orchard, a spring-fed pond, a nine-stall horse barn, and 18 acres of vineyard within the Mount Veeder American Viticultural Area (AVA). But it was the 22,000-squarefoot, Portuguese limestone mansion built in 2003 that pushed the price through the roof. In addition to five bedrooms, six full baths, and five half baths, Villa Sorriso featured a library, theater, three safe rooms, climate-controlled cellars for wine and art, and smart-house technology. The estate grounds also included an infinity-edge swimming pool, tennis court, and rolling gardens. Originally listed for $35 million in 2012, it was taken off the market and subsequently relisted for $29.9 million two years ago. More recently, the price was lowered to $22.9 million. According to the Napa Valley Register, the Bordeaux winemaking family of Alfred and Melanie Tesseron purchased Villa Sorriso. The Tesserons were represented by Will Densberger and Rob Landsness of Pacific Union. Cyd Greer and Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews International shared the listing.
