The Guardian reveals that the former childhood residence of Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney, sold via auction for £150,000 reaching £50,000 above the top guide price. The property auction was held on 26 February at the remodelled Cavern Club in Liverpool.
McCartney described the terraced house as “the first house I can remember”, having moved into the home at the age of four in 1947 and living there with his family for six years.
The Auctioneers said that interest in such a unique Lot was generated worldwide and although the successful buyer chose to remain anonymous, it was confirmed that the person in question hailed from the UK.
Andrew Brown, Managing Director at Countrywide Property Auctions commented: "We are delighted to have sold such an iconic piece of The Beatles and Liverpool's history”.
It goes without saying that Beatles memorabilia is popular and always sells well, which is supported by the track record from the sales of John Lennon’s and George Harrison’s former homes.
