The Washington DC home where legendary chef Julia Child whipped up some of her most famous dishes that appeared in her classic book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, has hit the market for $3.5 million.

Between 1948 and 1959, Georgetown’s buttery yellow clapboard house was her home. It measures 3,150 feet. During that span, she also lived with her husband, Paul, in Paris,  where she began her journey to culinary greatness. 

The three-bedroom and three-and-a-half bathroom Georgetown house has been restored and renovated by current owner Rory Veveers-Carter, who purchased the two-story home in 2015 for $935,000. 

Child, who passed away in 2004, was one of the pioneers in television cooking shows. In 1963 her show The French Chef launched. While melting a lot her butter in her renovated kitchen and perfecting her many beloved recipes such as French onion soup, coq au Vin, and beef bourguignon she also made her fondest memories. 

In the listing, Veveers-Carter’s grandmother was revealed to be an ‘avid watcher of Julia’s cooking shows’ and was ‘drawn to the enormity of the project after the building fell into disrepair … work(ing) tirelessly to preserve this landmark house.’
