Katharine Hepburn’s former Fenwick Estate “Paradise” set on Long Island Sound and built in 1939. In 2005 it was seamlessly renovated to create light-filled rooms while preserving the historical integrity of 8,400sqft of living space on three floors, with six bedrooms suites and seven gas fireplaces.
On the Eastern tip of Fenwick 1.5 acres overlooking LI Sound, a private pond, includes 220ft of frontage with a private dock. The gourmet kitchen features: custom cabinetry, a center island, white marble counters, AGA stove, Sub Zero refrigerator. A screened in blue stone porch, is perfect for entertaining and al-fresco dining.
All new mechanicals were installed for energy efficiency, restoring the original fireplaces, oversized Thermo panewindows, coffered ceilings, custom built-ins throughout. The executed design is a marriage of history and modern amenities. More than three additional acres were designated by Katharine Hepburn to remain forever open. The conservation parcel is owned and maintained by the Lynde Point Land Trust, thus assuring privacy and unobstructed views.
A community of 83 homes, was established in the 1600s and is located where the Long Island Sound meets the Connecticut River. Year round luxury living and entertaining, the private community is known for its golf course, swimming and boating. In the 1930s and 1940s, Howard Hughes landed his seaplane directly in front of the home, and today, the same opportunity awaits its new owner.
