Wine Country fire reaches $18 million Robin Williams estate

The Nuns Fire has reached the $18 million Napa Valley estate that belonged to actor Robin Williams, authorities said

The Nuns Fire has reached the $18 million Napa Valley estate that belonged to actor Robin Williams, authorities said Wednesday night.

The 640-acre estate was custom-built for Williams over 10 years ago. The property includes vineyards and a 20,000 square foot mansion with 5 bedrooms and climate controlled wine cellar.

Lynne Palmachoff, a Cal Fire spokesperson, said that the fire had reached estate lands. The agency won’t know if the building itself burned until crews report back on the damage, she said.

Before his death in 2014, Williams tried to sell the estate, listing it for $35 million in 2012. The listing price continued to drop until it was finally sold for $18.1 million in January of 2016 to French winemakers Alfred and Melanie Tesseron.
