Katharine Hepburn’s Paradise

It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic spot for summer home than the 1930’s-era mansion in Old Saybrook’s Fenwick area that used to belong to Katharine Hepburn.  This beautiful home where the legendary actress summered, swam, and finally lived out her remaining years, has been completely renovated by the current owners and is again for sale.

On 3.45 acres and with more than 8,000 square feet, this is more than just a home.  It’s a piece of cinematic history, a place where icons like Howard Hughes and Spencer Tracey regularly visited.  And, it can be yours for a cool $30,000,000.

After Hepburn’s death, the 6 bedroom, 8 bath home was extensively renovated by its new owners.  The floor plan was opened up and smaller windows replaced with larger ones to take full advantage of the stunning Long Island Sound views on one side of the home and the lovely pond views on the other.  Other amenities include a private dock, deeded water lots, a potting room, and a luxurious cook’s kitchen.

If you are looking for luxury and history all wrapped up in one stunning package, this Fenwick mansion certainly has it all!
