Frances Bean Cobain is no longer on the (housing) market. The only child of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and his widow, Courtney Love, has reportedly dropped just north of $1.8 million on a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home in Los Angeles.

Built in 1930 and situated on a small canyon in the foothills just above Hollywood, the two-story, 3,350 square foot, Spanish-styled abode features many of its original architectural details and vintage flourishes, as well as a fully-modernized kitchen, a master bedroom suite and a small backyard with a tree-shaded patio.

How can a 19 year old afford such luxury? Don’t worry, last year when Frances Bean turned 18, she became the sole beneficiary of a multimillion dollar trust, inheriting approximately 37 percent of Kurt Cobain’s massive estate.

Frances has pursued several different creative outlets over the years, from being an intern at Rolling Stone magazine to using the pseudonym ‘Fiddle Tim’ to display a collection titled ‘Scumf–k’ at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. She also contributed backing vocals to a song by Evelyn Evelyn, a group featuring Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls.

Widespread reports suggest Frances Bean currently is attending Bard College in upstate New York, although that rumor has yet to be confirmed, and there’s no evidence that she ever enrolled at that school or any others. A Twitter account attributed to her, which is set to private, seems to suggest she currently resides in London.
