Hepburn's Home Sold

The home of legendary actress Katharine Hepburn has been sold to a neighbor Frank Sciame.
Estate agents have not revealed the sale amount but say it was under the $12m asking price. The sale does not include four acres of nearby wetlands bequeathed by the actress to a conservation group.
In June, an auction of Hepburn's personal items including paintings and jewellery fetched $5.8m.
Hepburn, a four-time Oscar winner, died in June 2003 in her Old Saybrook home at the age of 96.

Another Grand Dame' of Hollywood and intellectual Beauty as well. I would love to be able to find a site online that shows the artwork/paintings etc. in Miss Hepburns estate sale...(]having a personal interest as I am the artist of one of her pieces.) May the wild flowers I sent her which she lovingly nurtured for years in Old Saybrook ever bloom and bring beauty to the property as she did to the world!
