Price Cut on Kurt Cobain's Childhood Home Means $329K Buys You Rock History


After hitting the market for $500,000 just a few years ago, the childhood home of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain has seen its value drop over the last few years, recently reaching a new low of $329,000. The listing, perhaps bowing down to the realities of real estate in Aberdeen, gets pretty direct, pushing the option of "moving the building and incorporating it into a larger institution or private collection." Built in 1923, the 1,522-square-foot, single family home offers plenty of room for a couple and an angsty teen or two. Last time we checked, the bungalow still had a hole-in-the-wall punched by Cobain, as well as band logos the grunge icon drew on the walls.
