The Cambridge house where Julia Child lived and cooked for 40 years is on the market. Yours for just $4.35 million.

One big asterisk: The kitchen has been renovated completely. That's usually a good thing, but in this case it means nothing remains of the space most identified with Julia Child.

The original kitchen -- its counters raised for the comfort of the 6'2" chef -- is on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. It was shipped there after Child moved out of the home in 2001.

Other features, such as a wine cellar, apparently survive.

The listing agent, Jeffrey Goldman of Premier Properties of Boston, points out that the home also was occupied until 1916 by the once-famous Harvard philosopher Josiah Royce.

But don't be intimidated -- your name could be the third on the historical plaque.
