Julia Child's Georgetown Home Lands on the Market for $1.1M

Welcome to this recently listed Georgetown abode, once home to the legendary American chef Julia Child. Now on the market, you can own this piece of culinary/real estate history for $1.1 million. With 1,497-square-feet, it features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a fairly grungy condition. Built some time before 1870 by African American carpenter Edgar Murphy, this single-family home has seen its wear and tear over the years and is being sold as is. For those Julia Child fanatics who aren't too shy of fixer-uppers, this listing housed the chef and her husband in 1948 when they both were posted for the Office of Strategic Services. In 1956, when they returned from France, Child gave cooking lessons in the kitchen of this abode. Washingtonian reported that the kitchen was expanded with new appliances, but there's no certainty that Child's kitchen still exists or if it was modernized.
