Bill Cosby purchased this property in Elkins Park, PA, in1983 according to Montgomery county records. Cosby purchased the 8,940 square foot home for just shy of a quarter of a million dollars. The mansion lies on three acres hosting several auxiliary buildings, 7 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and was originally built in 1800. Cosby lived with his wife Camille and four children at this residence. The home is currently estimated to be worth over 775,000.
Bill Cosby was a former comedian/actor most well known for "The Cosby Show." Although the show portrays Cosby as a respectable father, in real life he had a darker side. He was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee, at this residence in 2004. This was the first of many lawsuits filed against Cosby which took away the "good guy" image he portrayed on the Cosby show. Bill Cosby was placed under house arrest at this estate after he was found guilty and forced to wear a GPS ankle bracelet.
This residence is where Cosby and wife of 50 years, Camille, spent most of their time. Together they had five children and three grandchildren. Camille moved out shortly after Cosby was convicted and maintains the media "eliminated the possibility for a fair trial and unbiased jury....(they) labeled him guilty because the media and accusers said so...period." Over 60 women came forward claiming Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted them within the past 40 years.
Bill Cosby owns several other homes and has a net worth of an estimated at $400 million. Plenty of money to settle his trials with.
