A Piece of Music History
Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love purchased the 1902-built four bedroom, four full bath home in the Denny Blaine subdivision of Seattle, Washington back in January 1994. Three years after Cobain’s death, Love sold the 117-year old house to a trust for $2.895 million. Just recently, it was listed for $7.5 million.
Sitting on 0.74 acres of land, the 8,212-square feet property boasts of “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” according to the listing. Additional features include a walk-in closet and wine cellar.
Cobain was still living in the house with Love and daughter Frances Bean when he was found dead in the greenhouse by VECA Electric employee Gary T. Smith on April 8, 1994. There was also a suicide note on a nearby flower pot. Love had the greenhouse torn down after selling the home. They lived there for three months.
Meanwhile, Nirvana announced a vinyl reissue of MTV Unplugged in New York to celebrate its 25th anniversary. It will be out on November and will feature five rehearsal performances. MTV Unplugged in New York was the first album Nirvana released after Cobain’s death.
