Apparently Roberta Flack’s Hollin Hills house isn’t the only celebrity home currently up for grabs in the DC area. On Friday, a Georgetown Colonial once owned by Julia Child popped up on the market. Built in the late 1800s, the 1,364-square-foot three-bedroom frame house on Olive Street NW was home to Child and her husband twice—once in 1948, then again in 1956 after the couple’s return from France. That’s when they expanded and upgraded the home’s kitchen, and Child began giving cooking lessons to her Georgetown neighbors while researching for her debut cookbook.

The current owner is clearly banking on the property’s storied past: Despite the home’s obvious disrepair—it’s being sold “as is” as a fixer-upper and the listing only includes one interior photo—and a 2015 tax assessment of $856,620, it was listed for $1.1 million. No word on the state of the kitchen.

Head to Redfin for more details on 2706 Olive Street NW.
