Aberdeen, Wash. (KCPQ) -- Those looking for a piece of rock history -- or a fixer-upper -- can now buy rock legend Kurt Cobain's childhood home.
The home, listed as a four-bedroom one-bath bungalow near in Aberdeen, Wash., is being sold by real estate firm The Agency.
According to the company's website, the Godfather of Grunge lived in the home from when he was a few months old until he was 9, and then again from when he was 16 until about 20.
The residence is still largely persevered and features many of Cobain's belongings, including the rock legend's childhood mattress, the rug in his room, etchings he carved into the walls and more.
"The home is an amazing look into Kurt's past," the real estate agency said. "Everything is still more or less preserved and captures his early years that led to his legendary career."
The home won't come cheap. Last appraised at around $60,000 face-value, the artifact carries a $500,000 price tag.
But the home comes with some upside, agents said, as it has turned into a destination landmark and could easily be converted into either a museum or a vacation rental.
"Homes like Kurt Cobain's can also be used as vacation rentals, such as the last home Jim Morrison owned in Hollywood," the website read.
