Rock Offspring Francis Bean Cobain Buys Grown Up Hollywood Home

Francis Bean Cobain, the daughter of late Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love has just made the very grown up purchase of a $1,825,000 home in Los Angeles in a coveted Hollywood Hills location. According to the in-the-know Real Estalker and property records, the deal closed on July 27, 2011.

The acrimonious relationship between Cobain and her well-known mom has played out in the press over the last few years, so it’s no surprise the newly-legal teen is getting a crib of her own. The listing information for Cobain’s new home shows it measures 3,350 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The two-story house, was built in 1930 and was designed by famed architect Carl Jules Weyl. The home retains most of the original architectural details, including hand-forged iron work, colorful decorative tiles, numerous stained and leaded glass windows, hand-stenciled wood beams, and vintage light fixtures and hardware.

Other amenities include built-in cabinetry, carved wood moldings, beautiful mosaic inlay, ornamental window grills. The house is punctuated by balconies and decorative ironwork accents on the exterior. The spacious living room is highlighted by a fireplace, stenciled beams and leaded windows. A separate media room adjoins the all Viking-appliance kitchen, which captures today’s standards with a vintage flair, complete with a farmhouse sink, a huge walk-in pantry and breakfast room. The large master has a separate dressing area, generous closets and a spectacularly tiled bath. A great outdoor patio can be enjoyed in the lush pool-sized rear yard. A detached garage has been converted to a studio or office.
