Living France - - Les Pratiques -

The kitchen looks set to still be at the heart of Ju­lia Child’s former Provençal home af­ter its new owner re­vealed her plans to trans­form the house into a culinary re­treat. As re­ported in the Jan­uary 2016 is­sue of Liv­ing France, the prop­erty went on the mar­ket last Novem­ber for the sum of €880,000, and has been bought by 27-year-old Makenna John­ston from the US, who is also a former Smith Col­lege alumni, like Child her­self. Keen to con­tinue its cook­ing her­itage, John­ston plans to host a culinary re­treat in the prop­erty to in­clude cook­ery classes, ex­cur­sions to lo­cal restau­rants and yoga cour­ses. If you’d pre­fer to cook up a storm in the cook­ing queen’s kitchen your­self, you could al­ways rent it out on Airbnb from June. sothe­bysre­alty.com
