The first home that famed American chef Julia Child ever owned — a four-bedroom in Georgetown — is on the market for $1.1 million.
The couple returned to Washington in 1956, and the budding culinary legend gave the home’s kitchen a HGTV-worthy remodel, with a new commercial-grade gas range stove, dishwasher and garbage disposal. After the redo, Child’s lucky neighbors were treated to French cooking lessons. But those soufflé days would be short-lived. In 1959, after Paul’s retirement, the Childs left Washington for Cambridge, Mass. And that fancy stove went with them.
Today, the “Julia Child House,” which was previously rented at about $4,400 a month, is described as a bit of fixer-upper. Or in real estate parlance: “Great bones!”
