Kurt Cobain’s Childhood Home Up For Sale

urlWe get it. That 20th anniversary In Utero reissue just isn’t enough for you. That’s not to say that the reissue wasn’t full of Nirvana-packed awesomeness; you’re just an insatiable Nirvana fan. You need more. Well, have you got some extra cash on you? Like half a million? If so, you may be able to buy Kurt Cobain’s childhood home in Aberdeen, WA. 

The 1.5-story home, which was recently assessed at less than $67,000, is going for a listing price of $500,000. Cobain’s mother herself, Wendy O’Connor, has put the house up for sale. The walls of Cobain’s room are still littered with his writing and holes, and the musician’s mattress is stored in an upstairs crawl space. The family has said that it would also welcome the idea of making the house into a museum.

“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 Cobain, said in a statement. “But our family has moved on from Washington, and [we] feel it’s time to let go of the home.”

Cobain lived in the home from age 2 to age 9, when his parents separated, and lived there again with his mom when he was in his teens.
