Frances Bean Cobain, Kurt and Courtney’s daughter, sells Hollywood home for $2.29M

Frances Bean Cobain is creating a hole in her real estate portfolio. The 29-year-old visual artist and the only child of former Hole front-woman Courtney Love and late Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain has sold her idyllic Hollywood Hills home for $2.29 million. Cobain, initially purchased the Spanish colonial home for $1,996,000 in July 2020, Dirt reported. Following renovations on the home, the occasional model decided to part ways with the vintage home and is likely to break even on transaction. Cobain originally hoped to score a bit more on the property when it was first listed for just under $2.5 million last September 2021. Made up of four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the 1930s designer-renovated abode is situated in the foothills of Nichols Canyon. Spanning over 3,300 square feet, the property also comes with a bonus studio space. Original features throughout the home include Malibu Potteries tile, stained glass window, and iron fixtures which are combined with modern amenities, the listing states. The formal living room boasts stenciled, beamed ceilings, leaded windows, and French doors that lead to the sun-wrenched patio. The formal dining room also opens out to the outdoors. A converted detached garage borders the patio. A breakfast nook is situated in the remodeled kitchen, complete with Viking appliances and a walk-in pantry. The first floor also comes with a study and a bedroom. The primary ensuite bedroom boasts a balcony and an expansive bathroom. Laura Kay with Compass held the listing. Cobain has been linked to professional skateboarder Riley Hawk, the eldest child of skateboarding legend Tony “Birdman” Hawk. Following her contentious divorce from Isaiah Silva in 2017, whom she married in 2014, it was revealed that she earned over $100,000 per month, mostly from royalties connected to her father’s estate. Silva had sued Love, her manager Sam Lutfi, “13 Reasons Why” actor Ross Butler, private investigator John Nazarian, musician Michael Schenk and more for conspiring to kill him with the intent of stealing back the Nirvana frontman’s iconic 1959 Martin D-18E guitar. After a two-year battle, the guitar, which Cobain played during 1993’s “MTV Unplugged” performance, went to Silva in the divorce settlement. But Frances did not have to pay spousal support. Cobain also owns the publicity rights to her father’s name and image. In 2011, after she inherited her father’s estate, she owned another Spanish-style home in the foothills above Hollywood that she bought for $1.825 million. Cobain sold it seven years later for $2.331 million. Meanwhile, the home where her father took his own life almost 28 years ago found a new owner for the first time in 23 years, The Post previously reported.
