Note:
For his family residence in Raleigh, Cosby acquired the lot with an earlier, Federal style house on it, and soon added a towered fa├žade that transformed the house into an Italianate villa. It was later the home of his daughter and her husband Leo Heartt. It remained in the family and was razed in 1954 and replaced by a gas station.
