Katharine Hepburn’s First LA Home

The iconic Katharine Hepburn’s first LA home, a spacious mansion tucked away in Coldwater Canyon between Studio City and Beverly Hills, was just as much a gossip-free oasis as it was a stirring welcome to the West Coast. Rumors have long since swirled that the then-married 25 year old used the home on 2320 Bowmont Drive as a hideaway to conduct an affair with her agent Leland Hayward. But the story never held up – once Hepburn was divorced, she rebuffed Hayward’s marriage proposals.

Now, the hideaway hacienda-style home is up for grabs for buyers interested in either interested in buying a home, owning a piece of history, or carrying out their own stream of hush-hush secrecy. The house, built in 1927, boasts five bedrooms, five and half bathrooms, both indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a heated pool, an interior courtyard, a pizza oven, and central air conditioning. Given the era of its construction, aspects of the house are incredibly modern: cedar-beamed ceilings, white-washed masonry walls, and ample natural light abound. The list price on the home is $7.39 million, according to The Agency.
