Real Estate

The Seattle home where Kurt Cobain took his own life over 27 years ago has found a new owner, The Post can report.

The Nirvana frontman was discovered on the property, which he shared with wife Courtney Love, with a self-inflicted gunshot wound on April 5, 1994, at 27. 

Three years after his death, the home sold for $2.9 million to Mr. Euyang Walter Jr., a Seattle businessman, property records show. 

Walter, 64, and his family would remain in the historic home for 23 years before deciding to part ways with the property, listing the residence for sale at a pricey $7.5 million in 2019. 

However, the home quietly sold on Aug. 24, 2020, for $7,050,0000 — $450,000 less than the asking price.
