Mom selling late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's childhood home in Washington

ABERDEEN, Wash. - This month marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album, and fans aren't just able to buy a new "super deluxe" box set to celebrate the occasion. They can also buy the childhood home of late frontman Kurt Cobain, complete with his mattress.

Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, said she is putting the 1.5-story bungalow at 1210 E. First Street in Aberdeen, Wash., on the market this week.

To help sell it, the family is offering a glimpse into the early life of Cobain through photos shot at the house, including one of a birthday cake for Kurt and another of a teenage Cobain smiling, guitar in hand.

The home, located about two hours outside Seattle and last assessed at less than $67,000, is being listed for $500,000. The family says it would also welcome a partnership to make it into a museum.
