Fans of the iconic band Nirvana will be interested in learning that the late Kurt Cobain’s childhood house, from which he lived on and off until the age of twenty and recorded early Nirvana work in, is on the market.
The house itself was only assessed to be worth $67,000, but Kurt Cobain’s mother is selling it for $400,000 (reduced from her original asking price of $500,000 in 2013) because of its value to rock and roll history.
The four bedroom home in Aberdeen, Washington is in good condition and some valuables belonging to Kurt have been preserved, according to several sources. This includes markings and drawings Cobain made on the wall in addition to a hole he punched in the wall as a teen. Basically, the place is riddled with the early angst from the late and the great Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain.
But should this home not go to a private buyer, the real estate agent in charge of the property admits that Cobain’s mother might consider working with city officials to turn the home into a museum.
What do you think? If you’re a die-hard Nirvana fan like so many of the band’s fan base is, would you shell out the $400,000 to own a piece of his history and live in Kurt Cobain’s childhood house ?
