Throughout her illustrious career, Martha has lived in many homes—from her famous historic farmhouse, lovingly named Turkey Hill, to her current estate in Bedford, N.Y. But perhaps her most formative home was her humble childhood residence in Nutley, N.J., which is currently up for sale.

Martha spent much of her childhood and teen years at 86 Elm Place, where she lived with her parents and five siblings. It was in this house that Martha learned many of the skills, including cooking and homekeeping, that turned her into a successful entrepreneur.

This special house hit the market on May 5 and is currently being listed for close to $600,000. Prior to this listing, the home also sold in 2005 for $385,000 and again in 2011 for $420,000, NJ.com reports.

The colonial-style residence, which was built in the 1900s, has 10 rooms and four bathrooms. The main level features a spacious living room and adjacent dining room—both with ample room for hosting dinner parties, so you can live and entertain just like Martha.

If interested buyers want to make like Martha and flex their green thumb, the home's yard also has plenty of room for gardening—and the property's mature fruit trees, including peach, apple, pear, fig, and plum, add major (and delicious) curb appeal.
