Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Music fans with an interest in the origins of grunge rock can now buy Kurt Cobain's childhood home, on sale in Aberdeen, Wash., for $500,000.

It's a hefty price for the the modest property, currently valued at $67,000, but the realtor is pitching the home as a piece of rock history.

"The home is still largely preserved, with many belongings of Kurt’s still in place," according to Los Angeles brokers The Agency.

There are even marks and drawings on the walls made by Kurt, and pieces of original furniture including family dining table/hutch, Kurt’s childhood mattress, the rug in his room and more. The home is an amazing look into Kurt’s past, as everything is still more or less preserved and captures his early years that led to his legendary career.

Cobain lived at the home from ages 2 to 9 and later from ages 16 to 20.

"The family has photos of Kurt throughout his life in the home and would be willing to share a few select copies with the purchaser," the brokers add.

In a statement, Cobain's sister said that the family had "mixed feelings" about selling the home.

We've decided to sell the home to create a legacy for Kurt, and yes, there are some mixed feelings since we have all loved the home and it carries so many great memories. But our family has moved on from Washington [state], and [we] feel it's time to let go of the home.
