The property is on the market for $400,000 (£262,519), reports Billboard. A 1,522-square foot bungalow, it comprises four bedrooms, and also features “marks and drawings” on the walls made by a young Cobain, as well as a hole that a teenage Cobain punched in the wall, and a rug and dining room table which belonged to the Nirvana frontman’s family.
“The Childhood Home Of Kurt Cobain Is Being Offered For Sale. There Are A Number Of Exciting Possibilities For This Unique Property, Including Moving The Building And Incorporating It Into A Larger Institution Or Private Collection. This Is A Once In A Lifetime Opportunity To Own A Piece Of Rock History,” says the listing for the house on Aberdeen Realty, Inc.
Meanwhile, HBO’s forthcoming Kurt Cobain documentary will soon receive a theatrical release in the UK. Montage Of Heck premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January but will arrive in UK cinemas in April.
An HBO press release says “the film provides no-holds-barred access to Cobain’s archives, home to his never-before-seen home movies, recordings, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives and songbooks” and that it “features dozens of Nirvana songs and performances, as well as previously unheard Cobain originals”.
The film is directed by Brett Morgen and Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain acts as executive producer on the project. Montage Of Heck is named after one of Cobain’s mixtapes, which was circulated widely online in 2014. It features clips of songs by The Beatles, Iron Maiden, The Monkees, Black Sabbath, The Jackson Five and many more.
