Mom selling Kurt Cobain’s childhood home

An attic bedroom used by Kurt Cobain, the late frontman of Nirvana, is said by realtors to still include the original rug from when he lived in his childhood home in Aberdeen, Wash. Cobain's mother is putting the tired, 1.5-story Aberdeen bungalow on the market this week, the same month as the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album. The home, last assessed at less than $67,000, is being listed for $500,000, but the family would also be happy entering into a partnership with anyone who wants to turn it into a museum.

ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) — This month marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s final studio album, and fans aren’t just able to buy a new “super deluxe” box set to celebrate the occasion. They can also buy the childhood home of late frontman Kurt Cobain, complete with his mattress.

Cobain’s mother, Wendy O’Connor, is putting the 1.5-story bungalow two hours outside Seattle on the market this week.

To help sell it, the family is offering a glimpse into the early life of Cobain through photos shot at the house, including one of a birthday cake for Kurt and another of a teenage Cobain smiling, guitar in hand.

The home, last assessed at less than $67,000, is being listed for $500,000.

The family says it would also welcome a partnership to make it into a museum.
