The Seattle home once owned by Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain and his wife Courtney Love has gone on sale in Seattle and is currently being valued at $7.5 million.
The property on the US west coast city's neighbourhood of Denny-Blaine was the site of Cobain's suicide in April, 1994.
Cobain and Love moved into the 117-year-old house earlier that year. According to the listing on the website of a local real estate agent, the 8,212 square foot building has four bedrooms and four bathrooms and includes a shingled exterior, a wine cellar, and views of the Cascades mountain range and Lake Washington.
Love moved out of the property shortly after Cobain's death and sold the house to a trust in 1997.
According to the listing, the now iconic house is, "A perfectly maintained home of extraordinary presence situated upon a beautiful, park-like lot in the heart of Denny Blaine. Built in 1902, 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!"
A re-mastered version of Nirvana’s celebrated album MTV Unplugged Live In New York is out on November 1st.
Last year, Cobain's mother Wendy O'Connor, his sister Kim and his daughter Frances Bean visited Ireland to open a rare exhibition of the singer's personal belongings in the Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, Co Kildare.
The items on display included the top Cobain wore in the video for Nirvana's breakthrough hit Smells Like Teen Spirit, hand-written lyrics, sketches he made as a child and a teenager and the only known car he owned, a powder blue 1965 Dodge Dart.

The rock star's Irish roots are well known, and while Cobain believed that his family originated from County Cork, his ancestors in fact emigrated to the US from Carrickmore, County Tyrone, in 1875.
