Paul McCartney's Childhood Home to Be Auctioned at Liverpool's Cavern Club
The Beatles legend lived in the three-bedroom townhouse with his family from 1947, when he was four years old, until the mid 1950s.
The home, which is located at 72 Western Avenue in Liverpool's Speke neighborhood, features a lounge, dining room, kitchen and hallway on the ground floor, while the bedrooms and a family bathroom are located on the second floor. The house also features gardens in the front and back. According to a statement from auctioneers Countrywide Property Auctions, the residence is the first home McCartney recalls living in, and he has fond memories of his six years there.
The townhouse is estimated to sell for at least 100,000 pounds, or upward of about $150,000. The sale is being organized by Countrywide and real estate brokerage Entwistle Green, who also handled the auction of John Lennon's boyhood home at 9 Newcastle Rd. in 2013, and George Harrison's home at 25 Upton Green last year.
"We are delighted to be acting on behalf of the current owner of 72 Western Avenue, a property which has such a unique history," says Entwistle Green regional sales director Stephen Giddins. "The Beatles, arguably one the biggest bands of all time, still attract thousands of visitors to Liverpool each year, so to get the opportunity to offer for sale Paul McCartney's childhood home is very exciting."
