Frances Bean Cobain may be descended from grunge, but the daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole star Courtney Love has high-end taste. Cobain, 25, just listed her four-bed, four-bath home in the Hollywood Hills for $2.695 million. She purchased the Spanish-style property for $1.825 million back in 2011, which is basically an eternity ago in celebrity real estate time.
A rare Spanish home in the Hollywood Foothills, the 3357-square-foot house was built in 1930 by famed architect Carl Jules Whyl, who doubled as an art director on hit films like The Adventures of Robin Hood. There are exquisite period details featured throughout, such as wrought iron, stained glass, light fixtures, and period tile. Step inside the formal entry area where rich hardwood floors flow into to a spacious living room. A large central fireplace anchors the room, while stenciled beams add a unique embellishment. A kitchen is equipped with Viking appliances, walk-in pantry, and a farmhouse sink, and is adjoined with the family room, dining room, and den. Downstairs, a fourth suite with a study and powder room provides the ideal spot for visitors to relax in peace. Upstairs, the luxurious master suite features a stunning dressing area, spacious closets, romantic balcony, and en suite bathroom. The detached garage is currently converted into a recording studio/screening room (maybe Frances takes after her parents more than we thought!) but could easily transition to a home gym or additional office space. The grassy backyard is warm and inviting, with its own outdoor dining area, and plenty of space if you’re thinking of adding in a swimming pool.
