Actress’s home up for sale for £8.8 million

She is an icon all over the world for her incredible acting talent and ability to perform in so many roles, and now Katharine Hepburn’s home is up for sale

The estate in Old Saybrook in Fenwick, Connecticut was home to the actress for more than 65 years and it became her haven, describing it as “paradise” in her memoirs- although it is not hard to see why.

The house is located 200 miles of New York, has its very own beach and dock with the surrounding land held in trust. There are six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and seven fireplaces – sounds like a perfect party pad!

It is currently owned by Frank J Sciame who purchased it from the actress three years after her death.

If you do go for it , expect a few visitors as according to Frank: “People still drive by sometimes, trying to have a look. Even our friends, when we bought it, they all wanted to come and take a look around. Katharine loved it, her family loved it, and you get a real sense that the people who have been here for so long have all enjoyed it, too. The house has great karma.”
