Actor and director Robert Redford is listing his 10-acre wine country retreat in St. Helena, Calif. for $7.5 million.
Mr. Redford bought the 10-acre estate through a trust in 2004. He was attracted to the home’s European-style architecture and its setting, with views of Napa Valley, mature trees and hiking trails that lead to nearby Meadowood Resort, where he and his wife are members. “The property is very private, quiet and serene, yet just a 5-minute drive to the town of St. Helena,” he said in an email. “We have enjoyed both the solitude the home provides along with the close proximity to the Napa Valley and all that it has to offer.”
Mr. Redford and his wife, painter Sibylle Szaggars Redford, remodeled the home and built a 907-square-foot art studio with clear glass garage doors that open to a stone terrace. “I will miss my art studio, a place I designed and provided me with inspiration to create many paintings. I will also miss the trees, the garden, the pool and the organic warm feel of the house!,” Mrs. Redford wrote in an email. There is also a 500-square-foot workshop and a 960-square-foot detached garage.
The couple is selling because they have decided to move to the Bay Area “to be closer to family,” wrote Mr. Redford, 82. Mr. Redford won the Academy Award for best director for “Ordinary People” in 1981. His most recent film is “The Old Man & the Gun” which was released in September.
