La Pitchoune, Julia Child's farmhouse in Provence, France, has been listed on the open market for the first time ever.
Built on land owned by her Mastering the Art of French Cooking co-author Simca Beck,"La Peech" (as Julia called it) was completed by New Year's Eve 1966. The 1,500 square foot house has three bedrooms, and a kitchen that's been left largely unchanged since she gave up the property in 1992 following the deaths of her husband Paul and Simca.
The home is being sold by Kathie Alex, a former student of Simca's who then taught cooking lessons from La Pitchoune. The list price is €800,000, or $880,000.
