Julia Child's Former Washington, D.C. Home Just Hit the Market for $3.5 Million

To truly master the art of French cooking, cultivating the right environment is key. So, why not cook in the very kitchen where cultural icon and celebrity chef Julia Child wrote her famous book Mastering the Art of French Cooking? Now that the TV personality's D.C. home is on the market, you might just have a chance. The 19th century yellow clapboard house was her pride and joy. Nicknaming it her "little jewel," Child lived in the 3,275-square-foot Georgetown home with her husband Paul from 1948 to 1961. After the couple moved out, the house passed through a series of renters, who left the historic home in disarray. In 2015, software entrepreneur and experienced home flipper Rory Veevers-Carter bought the rundown home for $935,000 and restored it. After a 6-year journey, Child's little jewel has been recovered from the rubble and is shining more brightly than ever. Now all it needs is a new chef to grace its kitchen.
