You could live like a Foo Fighter for a cool million
Living like a rockstar is a dream for most. Every once in a while, the slight chance for that dream to become a reality comes along. This is one of those times.
Dave Grohl’s former home in Seattle has hit the market. The house is precisely located in Shoreline, Washington, which is about nine miles north of Downtown Seattle. Real estate records show that Grohl owned the home from 1993 until 1997, the same year that Foo Fighters released their breakout sophomore album, The Colour and the Shape. The 5-bedroom residence is listed at $999,950, and comes complete with a wine room, wet bar, and a private balcony off the main bedroom. The listing agent is John Nation of House Pros Realty, LLC. Check out more photos below.
Potential buyers may have to beware, though. While it’s not actually confirmed, Grohl mentioned in an interview last year with NME that he lived in a house in the early 90s in Seattle that he believed was haunted. In the interview, Grohl said he moved into the house in 1993, and it was at the edge of a wooded area, which can be seen in the new listing photos. His time owning the home apparently served as the inspiration behind Foo Fighters’ horror film, Studio 666.
“I moved into a house in Seattle in 1993,” Grohl recalled. “It was a new house built at the edge of a forest and little things started happening: noises, motion detectors going off. That soon ramped up into doors opening on their own or I’d feel like someone was right behind me at all times. Then, I had these recurring nightmares where this old woman would be standing looking at me. She was barefoot in a gray sweater and this weird, dirty blue skirt. She was covered in mud and her hair was all fucked up. It got to the point where I’d hear footsteps in the kitchen.”
Despite all the paranormal phenomena, Dave decided to stick it out for awhile.
“It wasn’t so bad that I wanted to move, though – I just sort of stayed there and felt creeped out for two and a half years.”
Hopefully the future owners will have a less freaky experience.
