Robin Williams' 3 Kevlar Wrapped Safe Rooms (And 650 Acre Estate)
In addition to five bedroom suites, the 20,000 square foot Limestone villa features three Kevlar wrapped safe rooms, a rather legitimate wine cellar, and an Alder paneled theater.
Also on the estate: a 3,000 square foot property manager's residence; a working 24-acre vineyard; a grove of over 100 olive trees; an array of 36 solar panels producing 300-400 amps perfect for helping to light the outdoor tennis court; and a 2-acre pond.

Target market: The chinese ‘princeling’ or post-soviet era russian oligarch who already has everything else.
Maybe I'll rent and watch David Fincher's Panic Room over the weekend.

Those theater chairs look familiar....
Could this be another Arthur McLaughlin staging?

In Palm Beach or Aspen, one can see the estates. So, I am always amazed by how many massive houses and estates there are in Napa and Sonoma that can't be seen. If one drives around, only gates and driveways are visible.

I wonder if Mrs. Doubtfire is included in the asking price.

I could do without the theater but I love the look of the kitchen!

What year was it built?
And again with the no-snuggling theater seats...

3 safe rooms? I had no idea that Napa Valley was so very dangerous.

For legal reasons, we cannot confirm or deny that we worked on this lovely home, THOUGH I do love to use Mohair seating in my theaters. It's so retro, and the chocolate brown is so beautiful because it goes with so many colors!
