The only actor or actress in history to win four Academy Awards, Katherine Hepburn is known for her passionate personality and her memorable performance in “The Lion in Winter” and dozens of other films.  One of her greatest passions was this waterfront estate in Old Saybrook, Conn., which was built by her family in 1913.  Katharine Hepburn’s house was destroyed in 1938 during the Great New England Hurricane, but the actress rebuilt the home within a year and lived there until 2003 when she died at age 96.

Katherine Hepburn has been regarded as the incomparable Queen of Hollywood. Her staunch independence and electric personality enthralled movie-goers for generations. It’s not a far stretch to note that her Old Saybrook, Connecticut luxury home at 10 Mohegan Avenue was as vibrant and mufti-faceted as she.

Hepburn’s mansion on the coast of Connecticut was recently listed for sale at a respectable price of $30 million. The original dream home property was destroyed in the Great New England Hurricane of 1938, but Hepburn adopted it as a labor of love. It was her private residence until she passed at the age of 96.

Hepburn chose to have every feature of her dream home accentuated with a white hue. She believed it was classy. From the wrap-around stairwells with Grecian pillars, to the cozy nooks of the spacious kitchen, her home was a visage of purity. White was the mode, but colored accents were the true marks of character in this simple, yet expansive estate. Gigantic artisan rugs with deep colors set the tone of each main room. Whether the floors were granite or walnut, Hepburn decorated from the “floor up.”

The Hepburn Estate celebrity home is most interesting in decor because it features function space with gratuitous amounts of square footage, and personal spaces that are quaint and undeniably attractive. For instance, a single fireplace and sofa is detailed with interesting novels and crafts which make the room seem completely cut-off from the rest of the mansion. There is definitely more to this home than can be seen from a flyby tour.

The 8,400 square foot owner name house Hepburn Family celebrity home has many features that make it extremely attractive.
