The good news about this particular house for sale is that there's room to land your own seaplane on the front lawn - as Howard Hughes was fond of doing, back in the day.

Katherine Hepburn's iconic Long Island home has been restored to its original stunning, beachfront glamour and glory - and it's on the market for a cool $14.8 million.

With six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and sweeping ocean views, the house was modelled on a set of children's building bricks that legendary actress Katherine used to explain how she wanted her dream home to be. She obviously succeeded, because she and her family lived on the estate from 1939, through to her death there in 2003. The house features its own beach, dock, oh, and a lake out the front in case you get bored of the ocean.

And if that isn't making you feel suitably impressed/envious/in need of a holiday, here are a few more luxury pads to drop the jaw...
