TV writer Ed Weinberger lists L.A. area estate at $12.5 million
Ed Weinberger, one of the creators of “The Cosby Show,” and his wife, television actress Carlene Watkins, have listed their home in a gated Los Angeles community for $12.5 million.
The 11,600-square-foot Georgian-style mansion and one-bedroom guesthouse sit on a 5-acre promontory with canyon, mountain and San Fernando Valley views. Features include a two-story entry with a sweeping staircase, herringbone-patterned wood floors, a media room with a bar, two offices, a library, a wine cellar and a gym/dance studio. There are six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. A swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and expansive lawns make up the grounds.
In addition to writing for “The Cosby Show” (1984-92), Weinberger wrote for stand-up comedians including Dick Gregory and Richard Pryor. He is a creator and writer for the current series “Belle’s.” Watkins appeared on the 1980s shows “Bob,” “Dear John” and “The Tortellis.”
The property previously changed hands in 1996 for $1.1 million.
Billy Rose, Jeeb O’Reilly and Maurcio Umansky of the Agency are the listing agents.
