Robin Williams' jaw-dropping 600-acre Napa estate is for sale — $35,000,000 and worth it

Mrs. Doubtfire our ass. Take the complete photo tour and by all means hit the full-screen button.

Here's the somewhat overwrought description:

Villa Sorriso sits majestically atop the Mayacama Mountains between Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Portuguese limestone envelopes close to twenty thousand square feet of luxurious living space, including five bedrooms, an oak-paneled library, state of the art home theater, family room, elevator, safe rooms, climate-controlled cellars for art as well as wine, and of course your very own tower and bridge. With summer lasting six months in wine country, you'll be grateful for the sixty-five foot infinity-edge swimming pool. Surrounded by antique European stone decking, a lawn and multi-tiered sculpture garden, this is an area that promises legendary outdoor events.
     Italianate and elegant, this is nonetheless, a true country estate because of the beauty and bounty of the land. Covering approximately six hundred and fifty-three acres in six parcels that also border a state park, this is a wild expanse with towering trees, rushing winter creeks and vast views. This is a pristine property within eighty minutes of the Golden Gate Bridge – a wilderness so convenient, yet so wild and haunting, that it summons even the softest city dweller.
     There are trails to blaze and ridges to ride, picnic spots to discover and lookout points to climb. You can fish in your spring-fed pond and round up your own cattle. And because this land borders Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, there are thousands more acres to explore. You could also have a herd of mustangs, or just a few purebreds.  With a seven-stall horse barn, you'll always have your own mount.
     The vineyard, ranch and house are cared for by an on-site manager, so that all you have to do is dwell in your delightful domain.
