OLD SAYBROOK - The late actress Katharine Hepburn's home along the Connecticut shore has sold for $11.5 million after several years on the market.

William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty agent Colette Harron says the 8,400-square-foot (781-sqare-meter) home in Old Saybrook sold Aug. 25. She says the home has six bedrooms and sits on 1.5 acres overlooking Long Island Sound.

The buyer's name has not been disclosed.

The seller was New York developer Frank Sciame. He bought the original 4-acre (1.6-hectare) property for $6 million in 2004, a year after Hepburn died at the Colonial-style home at age 96. He made extensive renovations and tried to sell the property for $30 million.

A second house built by the developer on a separate 1.3-acre parcel of the original estate remains listed at about $5.9 million.
