Living Like Robert Redford in St. Helena, $7.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Danza del Sol, the St. Helena compound of an American icon, the celebrated actor/director/activist Robert Redford and his wife, painter Sibylle Szaggars Redford, is exactly what you’d expect– a low-key, intimate home in a beautiful Wine Country setting on ten acres adjacent to the Meadowood Club. Set atop stone-walled terraces overlooking a pool and the Napa Valley, the discreetly simple property is asking $7,500,000.
The Redfords have renovated over the years, transforming the first floor into the perfect couple’s paradise (there’s a pair of guest bedrooms upstairs) with a series of supremely comfortable and intimate spaces.
What We Love: Appropriately, Danza del Sol is the definition of an effortless California comme il faut that exists nowhere else. As Steve Mavromihalis, a longtime friend of the Redfords who is representing the property, said in an email, “No staging. That’s the way they live. Some of the art is Bylle’s, some is Bob’s (yes, he is also a talented painter), and some has been created by their friends.” It also appears to be free of movie memorabilia, a sure sign of a couple with other touchstones besides Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
