The listing for 95 St. Thomas Way in Tiburon, a six-bed, six-and-a-half bath circa-1987 home on the market for a princely $7.25 million, describes the pad as a “Mediterranean home defined both by peaceful luxury and ease of family living.”

Compass realtors Haley Wright and Penny Wright-Mulligan talk up the formal dining room, master suite with south- and east-facing bay views, walk-in closets, and “sumptuous private darkwood study.”

There’s a deck, a pool, and a three-car garage, crown moldings, and walnut flooring.

What the realtors don’t mention is that this was, in fact, the former home of Oscar-winning actor and San Francisco comedian Robin Williams, whose name now adorns the tunnel most San Franciscans use to get to Tiburon.

Widow Susan Williams presently owns the house but has decided to part with it.

And yes, to answer the uncomfortable question on everybody’s mind, this is the house where Williams died—the address is listed on his 2014 death certificate.

It’s also one of many places that fans left flowers and tributes in the days after his death. This is neither the only home that Williams owned in the North Bay nor the most lavish—in 2016, his sprawling Napa estate, Villa Sorriso, sold for $18.1 million, after many previous unsuccessful attempts by Williams himself to sell the property over the course of several years.
