Local Couple Buys Julia Child House, Plans Major Overhaul

New, 2 comments

After snatching up the Georgetown home that Julia Child and her husband, Paul, lived in, local couple Rory and Patricia Veevers-Carter have already begun to receive e-mails from friends asking for dinner invites. The Julia Child House is most known for being the location where Child gave cooking lessons in the kitchen in 1956. While there is little certainty that Child's expanded kitchen still exists, this piece of culinary/real estate history still landed on the market for a whopping $1.1 million. Sold as is for an undisclosed amount, the Veevers-Carter couple are planning a major overhaul on the abode due to the wear and tear it's seen over the years. On whether or not the Veevers-Carter couple will accept dinner invite requests from strangers, it's pretty doubtful. (Doesn't hurt to try, though ...)
