Conn. court orders posts lowered at Hepburn house
HARTFORD, CONN. (AP) - A Connecticut appeals court has ordered a prominent New York City developer to lower the height of granite posts at the entrance of Katharine Hepburn’s former home.
Sciame had the 5-foot posts put up during major renovations after he bought the Old Saybrook property following the actress’ death in 2003. He paid $6 million for the estate in 2004 and is now trying to sell it for $30 million.
But the Borough of Fenwick Historic District Commission told Sciame the posts were too high and ordered him to lower them by a foot.
Sciame responded by installing foot-high flower beds at the posts’ bases.
