The home where the comedian Robin Williams lived before his death in 2014 has come back on the market with a price cut. The waterfront abode in Tiburon, CA, is now available for just under $6 million.

Williams had purchased the elegant property in 2008 for $4,050,000.

After his death at the age of 63, his wife, Susan Schneider Williams, inherited the home. In 2019, she put the place on the market for $7.25 million.

The home, which is associated with the actor’s headline-grabbing death after a battle with Lewy body disease, did not find a buyer. So the price was dropped earlier this year to $6,950,000, and then again to $6,795,000. 

Now, a buyer can swoop in and grab the waterfront property at nearly 20% off the original list price.

A new owner will enjoy some touches left behind by the star, including the pool—which the actor had the idea to lengthen, so he could swim laps. The couple picked out the poolside sculpture of the swimmer.

Inside the house, Robin Williams selected the bold, black tiles in the master shower, according to co-listing agent Penny Wright-Mulligan, with Compass.

With six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms on 6,517 square feet, the Santa Barbara-style contemporary offers plenty of space. Inside you’ll find a large living room, formal dining room, and an eat-in kitchen with center island and stone countertops, which leads to a custom media room. 

Set on one level, the floor plan has walls of windows that look out to the San Francisco Bay. The master suite offers access to the back deck, as well as walk-in closets, bath, and a study.

There are two more en suite bedrooms, as well as a kids’ bunk room. 

Outside, an ample deck runs along the back of the home, with numerous access points, to create an ideal indoor-outdoor living space. Multiple seating areas and a dining area are all set around the pool. With direct access to the bay, the home features built-in racks to keep your kayaks and paddle boards handy.

Other amenities include a laundry room, an en suite au pair unit, three-car garage, and a bonus space for an office, studio, or sixth bedroom. 

Wright-Mulligan calls the little-known neighborhood of Paradise Cay a “hidden gem.”

“This neighborhood is sought after by those who value privacy and security, with no through-access. It is only 20 minutes over the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco’s dynamic tech sector, although many of the residents enjoy commuting to work by private boat or ferry.”

Williams, whom Bay Area residents claim as their own, got his start in nightclubs in San Francisco in the 1970s.

His rapid-fire, often improvisational style quickly earned him fame. He starred in the TV show “Mork and Mindy,” and then appeared in many star turns in movies after that, including “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Good Morning, Vietnam,” “Dead Poets Society,” and “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won an Oscar.

In an homage to the long-time Marin County resident, the rainbow-decorated tunnel that connects Marin County to the Golden Gate Bridge is now named the Robin Williams Tunnel.

Penny Wright-Mulligan and Haley Wright, both with Compass, hold the listing.
