The historic home where Audrey Hepburn’s Sabrina lived most of her life dreaming up a whole new world with the Larrabees’ is now on sale for $11 million.

“This was as close to heaven as one could get on Long Island,” Sabrina Fairchild (Hepburn) says in “Sabrina,” as she described the Larrabee family mansion that she grew up in as the chauffeur’s daughter.

Located in Rye, New York, the home was first built in 1917, well before the Oscar-winning film was released in 1954.

Spanning over 9,400 square feet, the waterfront property is situated on six acres of land.

The home briefly went up for sale back in March for $12.5 million, before resurfacing with a price cut.

It last sold back in 1999 for $6.48 million, records show.

Privately situated on a long driveway that offers water views, the estate also offers a private beach, a walled pool terrace, a guest cottage and a detached barn and garage, according to the listing.

Known as “The Anchorage,” the brick Georgian-style house was designed by notable architect Mott B Schmidt.

Classical designs are featured throughout the home and boast several formal rooms, oak and brick herringbone floors, carved moldings and walls of French doors for optimal sunlight.

There is a kitchen, a walk-in pantry and a butler’s pantry. A second kitchen leads to the gated kitchen garden and covered porch from the mudroom.
