The house located at 171 Lake Washington Boulevard in Seattle, Washington harbors some dark and significant stories that surround Kurt Cobain, the late leader of the influential 1990's rock band Nirvana. Initially hitting the market in 1997 for just under $250,000, the property, which is now off the market, is valued at nearly $5 million.

Now serving as more of a tourist destination, memorial and shrine all in one, the home on three-quarter acres features 7,070 square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The house remains relatively intact since it became famous in 1994 after Cobain's death, which occurred in the greenhouse above the garage. That particular area was torn down by his widow before selling the property in 1997.

Aberdeen, Washington-based band Nirvana, led by Kurt Cobain, brought Seattle grunge out of Northwest garages and onto the national stage in 1991 with their debut album 'Nevermind.' Other bands followed suit, including Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, none of which saw the rapid rise to fame that Nirvana did. Their second major release, 'In Utero,' was released in 1993.

Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994, leaving behind a two-year-old daughter, wife, and legions of fans, many of whom still flock to the Lake Washington home to pay tribute.
