One of Kurt Cobain’s Childhood Homes is Up For Sale

One of Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain’s childhood homes is up for sale. He stayed at the house in Montesano, Washington, with his father after his parent’s divorce. Cobain was 11 years old when he arrived at the house in 1978 and lived there until 1982.

Estate agents didn’t realise it was Cobain’s former home until a photographer took a picture of the house and recognised it from its unique structure. It was well known that Cobain’s dad tried to make the interior look like a ship and Cobain’s room had circular, sea-cabin-like windows.

One of the estate agents, Colt Fairley, told Rolling Stone: “None of us knew it was until the photographer [Alicia Tisdale] took a picture of it.

“She knows Aberdeen pretty well. She was like, ‘Oh my god, this is Kurt Cobain’s house.’ His dad, Donald, tried to make the entire house into a ship.”

Earlier this year, another of Cobain’s childhood homes in Aberdeen, Washington, was officially recognised as a historical landmark, with plans to immortalise its original form reportedly “90 to 95 per cent” complete. Lee Bacon, the home’s current co-owner, told Rolling Stone that he planned to offer private tours of the home starting next Spring. Bacon also plans to launch a “Tribute Lounge and Gallery Cafe” in downtown Aberdeen, serving as a museum that aims to celebrate Cobain’s legacy through memorabilia, photos and other items of interest to fans.
