Robin Williams has a legendary career as an actor and comedian, as well as a new CBS sitcom,“The Crazy Ones.” Oh yeah, and he still has a massive vineyard estate in Napa Valley.

Robin Williams is relisting his Napa Valley estate, which he calls Villa Sorriso, or Villa of Smiles.

The funnyman made a serious attempt to sell it in 2012 for $35 million, but no one bought it. So now he is Good Will Hunting for a buyer at a lower price. Cyd Greer and Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews International will list the estate this month at $29.9 million.

The home itself is deluxe, with five bedrooms, 12 baths and 20,000 square feet. Built from Portuguese limestone, the house also features an oak-paneled library, a home theater, climate-controlled storage for art and wine, a private tower with a bridge accessible from the master suite, plus outdoor amenities including a 65-foot pool, a horse barn and a spring-fed pond for bass fishing.

But the 640-acre estate is a working Napa Valley farm, with 18 acres of olives and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Williams commissioned the estate in the early 2000s and named it Villa Sorriso, or Villa of Smiles.
