The founder of Sundance Film Festival is celebrating more than one closing this week.
Actor-director Robert Redford has sold his house in the wine country three months after listing it, the Los Angeles Times reported. The country house sold for $7 million, about half a million less than he and his wife, artist Sibylle Szaggars, originally asked for.
Sitting atop a 10-acre spread in St. Helena, the property includes a European style country house with a detached artist studio, workshop, outdoor patios, swimming pool and redwood hot tub. The main house has three bedrooms and four bathrooms within 5,300 square feet.
Gardens and hiking trails surround the gated estate.
Redford bought the property in 2004, records show.
Steven Mavromihalis of Pacific Union International handled both ends of the deal.
The Santa Monica native is best known for his roles in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “All the President’s Men,” and “The Natural.” He won an Oscar for directing “Ordinary People,” which was nominated for six Academy Awards.
The filmmaker also founded the nonprofit Sundance Institute, which puts on the popular Sundance Film Festival each year. The 2019 festival ended Sunday in Park City. [LAT] – Natalie Hoberman
