Robin Williams’ iconic San Francisco estate has been listed for $25 million
The historic San Francisco home of the legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams Once living on the market for $25 million.
The Italian Renaissance-style property is owned by Williams’ second wife Marsha Garces Williams, who is looking to downsize. The late actor and comedy icon bought the house with his then-wife in 1991, and the couple raised their three children there.
Located on a fenced and gated lot in San Francisco’s tony Sea Cliff neighborhood, this noteworthy property was built in 1926—a decade before the famous Golden Gate Bridge designed by architect Earl B. Bertz.

“Marsha and Robin Williams took the house down and rebuilt it in the early 1990s, updating all the major systems,” the listing agent says. Stephen Mavrommihalis. “However, they have gone to great lengths to preserve rare and valuable building materials used in 1926, which are no longer available in modern home construction.”
In fact, the meticulously designed home, which is modeled after a Tuscan villa, has been well maintained over the years.
The main entrance is supported by a grand staircase covered with period-appropriate terra cotta tiles and a wrought iron railing. Intricately carved crown moldings, vaulted ceilings, and marble details are found throughout the property.
The custom kitchen is outfitted with a La Cornue range and other high-end appliances, custom cabinetry with hand-wood inlay, and a butler’s pantry.
The master suite, one of six bedrooms in the house, features a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Custom built-in Japanese vanity; platform basin; And a separate walk-in shower.
Additional indoor amenities include a media room, fitness studio, sauna, wet bar, wine cellar, and (if home security is paramount) multiple panic rooms with walk-in closets.
Green lawns surround the house, and the private grounds include a dining patio with a barbecue, fire pit and several other seating areas.
