Two years later, he bought the apartment underneath him for £300,000 and combined the two places, per the Evening Standard.

In 2022, Cumberbatch appeared ready to expand his portfolio in the American housing market. Sources said that Cumberbatch was particularly interested in a 300-acre property and farm in the Southwestern United States, complete with a mansion, for £4 million, or about $5 million. If the place comes with horses, Cumberbatch may go from an on-screen cowboy for his role in “The Power of the Dog” to a real-life cowboy.
