(Montesano, WA) — One of Kurt Cobain’s childhood homes is for sale, and the listing price is shockingly affordable. As Rolling Stone points out, the late Nirvana frontman lived at the house in Montesano, Washington from 1978 to 82. Kurt moved in with his dad Don following his parents’ divorce at the age of 11 and stayed until his father re-married. In March of 1982, Kurt moved in to his grandparents’ trailer, which marked the beginning of his chaotic teenage years. The house is listed at two-hundred-seventy-nine thousand dollars, which might have something to do with the fact that the realtors didn’t realize the significance of the building until days before it went on the market.
