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.
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.
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.
