Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s fixer-upper home is for sale

Come as you are, as you were — and with your architect.

A Los Angeles Craftsman-style house that grunge music couple Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love called home during their tumultuous relationship has listed for $998,000, its listing brokerage told The Post.

However, this one is gonna need a lot of love. The listing notes that “the property has fallen into disrepair and is a major fixer.”

Cobain — the still-respected Nirvana frontman who died by suicide in 1994 — and Love, the lead vocalist for Hole who later transitioned into acting, moved into this Hollywood Heights spread in 1992, the year their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was born.

It isn’t clear how long the family resided there, but it’s said that Cobain wrote much of “In Utero” — Nirvana’s third and final album — in the home.

The 2,458-square-foot property, at 6881 Alta Loma Terrace, has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It dates to 1921 and comes with a two-story living room with an open staircase and four large French doors that lead outside to a deck. There are two bedrooms upstairs, while a lower level has a one-bedroom apartment that can be converted into an art or music studio. Outside, there’s a side yard for some green space.

Despite its state of disrepair, the home seems to have good bones. Listing images show built-in shelving, multiple windows and good natural light, according to Realtor.com.
