If you’re looking for a modest home in a down-at-the-heels logging town at the end of the road, I’ve got a deal for you.
It’s a 1 ½ story, very traditional 1,522 square-foot four-bedroom house (one bath, alas) with a single car garage at 1201 East 1st Street in Grays Harbor, right next to Aberdeen, Washington. It’s a fixer-upper for sure–it was built in 1923 and the kid who used to live there used to draw on the walls and later, as a teenager, punched a hole in the wall that was never repaired. But it has potential. This is the house where Kurt Cobain grew up. The listing read “There are a number of exciting possibilities for this this unique property, including moving the building and incorporating it into a larger institution or private collection.” The initial price was $400,000 but that was quickly chopped to $300K anyone interested?
