Kurt Cobain And Courtney Love’s House Has Been Listed For Sale

The house in Seattle where Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love lived is on the market for $7.5 million

The house once lived in and owned by Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love is up for sale. The mansion in Seattle was where the late Nirvana frontman lived with Courtney Love and their daughter Frances Bean Cobain, until his death in April 1994.

Courtney continued living in the property with Frances until she sold it to a trust in 1997, though she did have the property’s greenhouse, in which Kurt’s body was found, torn down.

Built in 1902, the house – which is 8,212 square feet and sits on 0.74 acres – is currently on the market for a jaw-dropping $7.5 million and, among many lavish additional features, includes a wine cellar. 

The house is listed with U.S. estate agents Ewing & Clark and is located in the Madison Clark are of Seattle. Because of high fences and gates, it has been impossible to see what the house has looked like for a number of years, but the listing includes a number of pictures of the admittedly beautiful property.

The listing makes no mention of the property’s former owners, instead opting for this rather straight-laced description: A perfectly maintained home of extraordinary presence situated upon a beautiful, park-like lot in the heart of Denny Blaine. Built in 1902, features a shingled exterior distinguished by expressive windows, stone accents & Queen Anne styling, completely updated throughout. Gracious rooms enhanced by an open floor plan & fine millwork. Views of gardens, Lake Washington & Cascades. A stone’s throw from lake & the bustle of Madison Park. 15 min to downtown. A once in a lifetime opportunity!”

Beyond the extravagant price tag, the listing also states that annual taxes for the property come to $52,227. Which, obviously, is no small chunk of change – but then again, if you’re shelling out nearly $8 million for it, you can probably afford the taxes, too.
