There are five fireplaces, six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

A swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and a one-bedroom guesthouse are on the grounds.

In addition to writing for two Bill Cosby series and “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” Weinberger wrote for stand-up comedians, including Dick Gregory and Richard Pryor.
