Kurt Cobain's Childhood Home Is Put Up for Sale


Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor is selling the 1.5-story bungalow for $500,000 and the family says that they welcome partnership to make the house into a museum.

Kurt Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor put the musician's childhood house up for sale this week. The house, assessed at less than $67,000, was listed for $500,000. The star's mattress is also sold along with the 1.5-story bungalow, which is located in Aberdeen, two hours southwest of Seattle.

"We've decided to sell the home to create a legacy for Kurt, and yes, there are some mixed feelings since we have all loved the home and it carries so many great memories," Cobain's sister Kim says in a statement, as quoted by the Associated Press. "But our family has moved on from Washington, and (we) feel it's time to let go of the home." The family also welcomes partnership to make the house into a museum.

Some pictures of the late Nirvana frontman were released to push the sale. One photo shows Cobain and his sister as children, while another photo shows him playing piano in the house. Another photo shows young Cobain playing a guitar in his messy room, while another snap shows Cobain as a child posing with his chocolate-coated birthday cake.

Cobain's parents bought the house when he was 2. He lived there until his parents divorced when he was 9. According to a real-estate firm which markets the house, The Agency, the house was last lived in by a family friend four years ago.

Cobain committed suicide in 1994. He was 27.
