The Academy Award-winning actress retired to the home and lived there until her death in 2003 at age 96. The feminist icon won four Oscars and received 12 nominations over her 60-year career.

    6 degrees here...........I worked for Lauren Bacall. She went to visit Kate at her home while I worked for her. The stories she told were AMAZING! All about Kate, Tracey, Bogey & more! I asked her about Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin (I knew them too). It was so out of body for me and one of my fondest memories. I need to remember how lucky I am with stories like that when I am done in the dumps!
