The house where Academy Award-winning actress Katharine Hepburn lived until her death in 2003 is on the market for $11.8 million—and it's a beauty. Scroll through to see the property that the Hepburn family bought in 1913.

The house is on about one-and-a-half acres in the prestigious Fenwick section of Old Saybrook, Connecticut.


It overlooks two lighthouses near where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound.


Built in 1939, the home was renovated in 2005.

There are six light-filled bedroom suites.


With sweeping views of the Sound.


Like this.


The 8,400-square-foot house encompasses three floors.


The kitchen has custom cabinets, white marble counters, an AGA stove, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.


The outdoor space looks like this.


There's a screened-in porch.


The property comes with this 220-foot private dock.


"In the 1930s and 1940s, Howard Hughes landed his seaplane directly in front of the home," the listing, with Colette Harron at William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty, proclaims. "And today, the same opportunity awaits its new owner."

Hepburn designated three adjoining acres to remain open space forever.


That parcel is now owned and maintained by a local land trust.

The Fenwick neighborhood has its own golf course and tennis courts.


It could be yours.
