Katherine Hepburn's Former Estate

Katharine Hepburn is loved by many.  Her movies are family favorites from On Golden Pond (which always makes me cry) to The Philadelphia Story and even "Jo" from Little Women (one of my favorite stories of all time).  She not only won 24 awards and entertained 27 nominations she lived in a grand house on Old Saybrook, Connecticut.  It's for sale for $28,000,000 with 6 bedrooms 7.5 baths and 8,368 square feet.  The current interior design is charming and full of laid-back Americana beach charm.  

This 3.4 acre estate is surrounded by the Long Island Sound at the eastern tip of Fenwick. 

Renovated in 2005, the architecture references from some of New York's great landmarks. 

This entry is amazing with it's 3 story staircase in view and an enormous american flag.  

The lower ceiling in here makes this space cozy and relaxing.  Particularly like the seating arrangement and white furniture.  

A classic Kitchen with white cabinets and marble counter tops.  Most fitting with the rest of the space 
and location.

Perfect selection of an antique table and white painted windsor chairs to go with this casual dining room.

I love the sailboat artwork on the wall and the light filled windows surrounding.

I could get used to waking up to this view.

Another bedroom with a fireplace and magnificent views of the beautiful property.

Breakfast on the screen porch?
