After 15 years in wine country, Robert Redford is ready for a change of pace. The Oscar-winning actor-director has sold his scenic retreat in the Napa County city of St. Helena for $7 million.

That’s half a million shy of the price he asked last year, records show.

The property, which he bought in 2004, spans 10 tree-filled acres of gardens and hiking trails. Structures include a European-inspired country house, a detached studio, a garage/barn and a workshop.

In the main home, there are three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms across 5,255 square feet. Beamed ceilings and a dramatic stone fireplace touch up the living room, and other spaces include a family room filled with built-ins and a center-island kitchen.

Floor-to-ceiling windows take in treetop views throughout the floor plan — including the master suite, which boasts a corner fireplace and freestanding tub.

Out back, a patio with a pergola descends to a swimming pool. A cabana, fire pit and redwood hot tub round out the landscaped space.

Steven Mavromihalis of Pacific Union International handled both ends of the deal.

Redford, 82, is known for his roles in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “All the President’s Men” and “The Sting.” He won an Academy Award for his directorial debut with “Ordinary People” in 1980, and he received an honorary Oscar for his body of work in 2002.
