Kurt Cobain’s Daughter Frances Bean Cobain Lists Vintage Hollywood Home

 

 

Frances Bean Cobain, the only child of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain and Hole’s Courtney Love, has just listed her Hollywood home for $2.7 million. She bought the property back in 2011, while she was still a teenager. Cobain, now 25, put her keen eye for design and style to work on this home, contributing to the nearly $90,000 increase in the home’s value since her original purchase.

“She has a sense for what makes this home really special—what makes the house really sing,” says the broker working with Cobain. “That, of course, is the remarkable period detail.”

She kept many details of the 1930 Spanish Colonial intact, including hand-painted Spanish tiles, original hardware, wrought-iron railings, leaded-glass windows, hardwood flooring, and stenciled beams. She did, however, seamlessly update the home’s older features, swapping in high-end Viking appliances, a farmhouse sink, and walk-in pantry, as well as open shelving and subway tile backsplash.

Cobain’s 4 bed, 3.5 bath home covers 3,357 square feet, with an additional 9,784 square feet of outdoor living space.

The upstairs master bedroom is fitted with a dressing area, ample closet space, a balcony, and an en suite bathroom with beautifully preserved original turquoise tile. Cobain also converted the detached garage into a combination recording studio and screening room.

Her private tile patio with dining and lounging areas are surrounded by towering hedges, and there is ample room for an in-ground pool on the expansive grounds.

Located near the popular Runyon Canyon hiking trail and Wattles Garden Park, and is only a quick drive away from Sunset Boulevard and Beverly Hills.
