This incredible estate was the home to one of the greatest actresses of all time, but now it's up for grabs!

Based in Connecticut, this property is on the market for a whopping $18 million!

So can you guess whose it is?

It belonged to four-time Academy Award winner Katharine Hepburn!

According to Zillow, "The Hepburn home sits on Long Island Sound with a private dock and beach.

"The six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath home was completely renovated, including upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms. With 8,300 square feet of living space, the beach home has high ceilings, architectural detailing as well as large windows and French doors that offer expansive water views."

The home faced severe damages from a Category 5 hurricane in 1938, but Hepburn loved the house so much that it was rebuilt within a year.

Hepburn passed away at her estate in 2003 at age 96.

In 2004, Barbara and Frank Sciame, the chief executive of F.J. Sciame Construction, bought the estate purely to renovate and sell it, but they ended up keeping it as a summer home for several years.

However, they split the property into three different lots. The plot containing Hepburn's home is the priciest at $18 million, but the entire 3.5-acre property can be purchased for $28 million.

Which is chump change if you're Petra Ecclestone.
