If only I had $4.3 million to spare

Julia Child's former home at 103 Irving Street in Cambridge is on the market. According to the exclusive listing with Premier Properties of Boston, this historic home on Cambridge's famed "Professor's Row," has 6,000 square feet of living space luxuriously appointed with a marble entryway and hardwood floors throughout.
Of course, the kitchen where Julia Child cooked and filmed her television shows was removed years ago and put on display at the Smithsonian. But, the "oversized Italian kitchen" that took its place is nothing to sneeze at, with custom cabinetry, marble countertops and top-of-the-line appliances (Kuppersbusch Okotherm oven, Miele cooktop and dishwasher, Sub-Zero regrigerator/freezer). And while Julia's kitchen is gone, the Childs' temperature controlled wine storage room remains.
The asking price? A mere $4,350,000.
A small price to pay for a culinary dream house.
