10E2498: Julia Child's (Provence) House For Sale

"Though Julia Child only lived full-time in France for a little over five years (from 1948–1956), she and her husband Paul maintained a small cottage in Provence until 1992. For the first time ever, the half-acre property is on sale to the public, with an asking price of about $880,000.

The kitchen counters are extra-tall to accommodate Child's height (a modest 6'2), and all the appliances are the original ones the chef actually used [actually the stove was replaced as she sold the OG- ed.]. Child's husband and his brother painted outlines of her professional cooking tools on pegboards, which remain part of the decor." via CNTraveler
