The 117-year-old Queen Anne-style house in Seattle’s Denny Blaine neighborhood is currently on the market with a listing price of $7.5million.
Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s former home in Seattle’s Denny Blaine neighborhood is up for sale, with an asking price of US$7.5million.
The real estate listing describes the home as “A perfectly maintained home of extraordinary presence situated upon a beautiful, park-like lot in the heart of Denny Blaine. Built in 1902, it features a shingled exterior distinguished by expressive windows, stone accents, and 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 the lake & the bustle of Madison Park. 15 min to downtown. A once in a lifetime opportunity!” Interior shots of the house are not being released, but it’s said to boast four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a wine cellar.
The listing doesn’t, however, make any mention of the home’s former owners, or the fact that this was where police found Cobain’s body after he took his own life in 1994.
Besides being the site of the Nirvana frontman’s death, there could be another reason that his and Courtney Love’s names were omitted from the listing. According to Consequence of Sound, in 2013, Cobain’s childhood home went on sale for $500,000, but the price was later dropped to $225,oo0 after going unsold for years.
