Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of musicians Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, is mixing up her real estate portfolio as she embarks on married life with skateboarder Riley Hawk. Her October 7 wedding to Hawk—the son of skateboarding legend Tony Hawk—was officiated by Cobain’s godfather and R.E.M. frontman, Michael Stipe. Per Robb Report and property listing information, the music heiress officially unloaded her contemporary-style San Diego pad for $2.45 million last week after buying a 1920s ranch-style home in Oceanside, California for $2.25 million this June.
The San Diego property that the artist and model just sold is a roughly 1,800-square-foot 1990 build in the Point Loma neighborhood with three bedrooms and two baths. The single-level home has been recently updated, which is perhaps the most obvious in the kitchen, which now boasts custom charcoal-colored cabinets, dark stone countertops, a spacious center island, and a green tiled backsplash. White walls, exposed beams, and new hardwood floors unite the home. A living space off of the kitchen boasts a fireplace and a fold-away glass wall that grants access to the backyard pool area, where a lanai, a fire pit, a detached garage, and a two-story playhouse are situated.

Cobain’s new dwelling is only slightly larger than her previous San Diego abode at 2,000 square feet, though it features an upgraded five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a bigger yard. The house was built in 1926 and was completely redone in recent years with special attention spent on eco-friendly measures. Sustainable additions include a reverse osmosis water system for the kitchen, skylights for natural light, solar energy, charging stations for electric cars, and a reimagining of the grounds that swapped the existing garden out for native plants that require little water. Other highlights include a saltwater swimming pool, an above-ground cedar hot tub, and a cozy wood-burning stove in the living room.
