Got $3 million and a morbid sense of humor? Have we got a property for you.

Courtney Love put her Seattle home up for sale over the weekend--the Victorian mansion where her husband, grunge rocker Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994.

Three mil gets you a "meticulously restored" 1902 home with five bedrooms, four baths, fireplaces in the living and dining rooms, a family room and chef's kitchen with industrial-grade appliances, plus views of the Cascades and Lake Washington.

Not included: the carriage house where Cobain, lead singer for Nirvana, shot himself. It was torn down at some point after his death, say local papers.

Love also has a horse farm in Olympia, Washington, and would prefer to raise her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, there, as well as in New York or Los Angeles, where, her publicist says, she spends most of her time. She's said to be dating Edward Norton, her co-star in The People vs. Larry Flynt

Love became a hot property as a film actress following her appearance in Flynt. But she's still very much in the music business--the next album (tentative title: Celebrity Skin) from her band, Hole, is due out in the fall (their first effort since 1994's Live Through This). Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins is producing.

Oh, one little problem about the house: It's visited at all hours by Nirvana fans, who have also made nearby Viretta Park into a place of pilgrimage.
