Frances Bean Cobain, One of L.A.'s Newest Luxury Home Owners
Her estranged mom may be penning a set-the-record-straight memoir, and her late dad's legacy is in a renewed spotlight, but now 19-year-old artist and celebrikid Frances Bean Cobain is making herself right at home in Los Angeles. Cobain has just purchased a 4-bedroom home, costing her $1,825,000 of her massive trust fund, says The Real Estalker.Cobain's new L.A. pied-a-terre is in the hills above Hollywood, and is described as a "vintage Spanish style casa tucked into a quiet canyon in the foothills." The deal reportedly took place in July. Here are a few more details:
Listing information for Miss Cobain's new crib shows it measures a grown up but far from excessive 3,350 square feet with a total of 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The two-story house, built in 1930, was designed by architect Carl Jules Weyl and retains many original architectural and decorative details such as hand-forged iron work, colorful decorative tiles, numerous stained and leaded glass windows, hand-stenciled wood beams, and vintage light fixtures and hardware.
It seems pretty likely that Cobain will do some serious redecorating to tailor the home's interior to match her goth-y, glam-y personal style. As The Real Estalker points out, just how much time young Miss Cobain will devote to L.A. is uncertain, since "she reportedly attends private, pricey and proudly arty-farty Bard College in upstate New York." Cobain debuted her artwork here in L.A. at La Luz de Jesus Gallery under the alias "Fiddle Tim."
