And Cala Lilies in the 'Expansive Magical Gardens'

I'm a fan of Katharine Hepburn. When I came to this country with my mother, Kate was a fellow passenger on the Nieuw Amsterdam. All her life, she was independent and thoroughly outrageous (no wonder she is a gay icon). Now, even in death, dontcha think she chortles about this hilariously O. T. T. announcement:

Curbed: On the (Rental) Market: Hepburn Slept Here

You might accuse us of unfairly overselling the Turtle Bay townhouse above by prominently featuring that photo of Katherine Hepburn [sic], its resident from 1931 until the late 1990's. In fact, we've simply rerun the image from the listing for the property, which, per Braden Keil, can be rented for $39,500 a month. Bonus broker babble: "Re-live the glamour in the one time surroundings and home of the movie star legend Katherine Hepburn, The original mirrored dressing room area retains the glitter." Natch.
