You, too, can live like Katharine Hepburn, except, really, nowhere near as elegantly or Oscar-winningly, for $27,500 a month! According to Curbed, the home at 244 East 49th Street where the actress spent more than 60 years as a resident has come down in price from $39,500 a month in 2007 and $30,000 a month last year.
Prudential Douglas Elliman describes the house as a “four story Turtle Bay Brownstone with Expansive Magical Gardens,” decorated with Hepburn photos and watercolors, and renovated to perfection, but with the “glitter” of the old days. Well, even at the decreased $27,500 a month, we’d hope so. And it better not have bedbugs. She never would have put up with that.
