Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain's childhood home up for sale
Kurt Cobain's childhood home is going up for sale. Wendy O'Connor, Cobain's mother, is putting the bungalow in Aberdeen, WA on the market this week.
The family is showing a look into the musician's early childhood through photographs taken at the house.
The home was last valued under $67,000 and is now going to be listed for $500,000!
The house is near the Kurt Cobain Riverfront Park, which is dedicated to him, and his family said they would welcome a partnership to make the home 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," said his sister, Kim Cobain.
"But our family has moved on from Washington, and (we) feel it's time to let go of the home."
The house was purchased by Cobain's parents when Kurt was two years old. He lived there for 7 years till he was nine and his parents separated. He once again returned to live with his mom in his teens.
The singer killed himself in April 1994, when he was aged 27.
This month marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's third and final studio album, In Utero.
