The colorful bungalow hit the market in late January for $735,000 and went from pending to closed in 10 days. Gossard bought the property in 1992, a year after Pearl Jam released its first album, for $230,000, public records show.

Built in 1918, the home sits behind a red picket fence and has a front courtyard.

The 2,610 square feet of interior space includes a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room with built-ins, three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. The basement has been finished as a studio space with lighting and a small stage.

Lawns, mature landscaping and a detached garage fill out the grounds.
