John Lennon's early childhood home to go up for auction

The Beatles legend lived at 9 Newcastle Road in Liverpool until the age of five

John Lennon's early childhood home to go up for auction
The childhood home of The Beatles' John Lennon is to go up for auction at Liverpool's Cavern Club this month (October 29).

Lennon lived in the red-bricked terrace house at 9 Newcastle Road in Wavertree, Liverpool, with his parents and grandparents from his birth on October 9, 1940 until the age of five, when he went to live with his aunt and uncle, Mimi and George Smith. It is also the place he is believed to have have written the 'Let It Be' track 'One after 909' later in his life.

Located near Penny Lane, the three-bedroomed property has a guide price of between £150,000 and £250,000. Only a few people are believed to have owned the property since the 1940s.

The current owner said in a statement: "I have made sure original features have been preserved so that they reflect the 1960s period, when the Beatles wowed the whole world with their rock and roll music. The main structure of the house and features, such as the original Victorian sliding sash windows, are as they were when John Lennon lived here with his parents and his grandparents from 1940 onwards."

Stephen Giddins, Regional Sales Director of estate agent Entwistle Green, said: "Although the property in need of some modernisation it retains some of the original features that I’m sure a new owner would wish to keep. Taking into consideration the location, the property itself and the background we expect a lot of interest locally and internationally."
