Here's What $9.9 Million Gets You in Old Saybrook
In the tony Fenwick enclave of Old Saybrook, there’s a $9.9 million-property, just listed with Colette Harron of Sotheby’s International Realty, the Realtor who sold Katherine Hepburn’s Fenwick property. Thanks to its 22-foot-elevation above sea level, this new listing boasts varied views—over Fenwick Golf Course, Long Island Sound, the Connecticut River and its own 130 feet of private waterfront, including a 100-foot dock with an electrical davit. Clad in white-cedar shingles, the main manse has the feel of a luxe resort. There’s an elegant dining room with a gas fireplace, a lofty mahogany porch that leads to the blue-stone patio and pool, and a party-ready kitchen with six-burner Viking stove, a Sub-Zero fridge and two Wolf ovens. The upper floors, served by an elevator, offer five bedrooms, including a master suite with another gas fireplace and a sitting room with 270-degree views over the water.
