Julia Child’s DC Residence Is on the Market…

…for $1,100,000.

In something of an understatement, the Agent’s Summary describes the property as  “As-is condition, Fixer-Upper, Needs work, Rehab potential.”  And this is what it looks like:

Julia Child House

In most places—even in Georgetown, where the house is located—$1,100,000 might seem a bit excessive for a “Fixer-Upper.”  My Mother used to enjoy driving me up the wall with stories about the mortgage on my family’s home, which was much larger and better kept than this one.  It was $87 a month.

Paul and Julia Child lived in this house at 2706 Olive Street, NW, in 1948, when they were both serving in the Office of Strategic Services, an organization that later became the CIA.  They lived in France through the early 50s, and returned here In 1956.  Julia Child gave cooking lessons in the kitchen.
