Katharine Hepburn's former estate: Up for Grabs


Katharine Hepburn - "old Hollwood" American actress and absolute glamazon - lived in a seaside home in Connecticut until she passed away in 2003 at the ripe old age of 96.  In 2005, the seaside manor was renovated by the new owners who apparently took great care in preserving the "historical integrity" of the original home.

It looks vastly different now. The rebuild took the rooms from 21 to 15 and the nine bathrooms to seven, so I am unsure exactly how much of the original home was 'preserved'. Nevertheless, this is a truly beautiful home in a magnificent location. I just had to share some of these images.

Full article available at www.smh.com.au.

This is Ms Hepburn's original property...


And these photos have been taken following renovations by the new owners...


Not a bad view to wake up to every morning!

I would love to have a kitchen this size! 





What a place to have breakfast huh!


What a manor indeed. It is now on the market again with a price tag of... just a sly $28 million!

All photos of the home are from SMH online.
