Paul McCartney’s childhood home to go under the hammer

Beatles fans will have the opportunity to purchase a piece of history when Paul McCartney’s former childhood home goes to auction at the renowned Cavern Club in Liverpool at 7:00pm on 26 February 2015.

The humble three-up, two-down terrace home of 72 Western Avenue in, Speke, Liverpool, was where Paul McCartney lived with his parents until the mid 1950’s. This Iconic three bedroom mid townhouse will undoubtedly be a sought after property for any keen Beatles enthusiast wishing to own a significant part of Paul McCartney’s history in the form of a well presented family home.

The property comprises of a hallway, lounge, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor and on the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Externally there are gardens to the front and rear of the house. It is a rare opportunity to own an iconic piece of history and therefore early enquiries are recommended to avoid disappointment. The house is being auctioned with a guide price of £100,000 plus.

Paul was aged four when in 1947 his parents Jim and Mary moved into this mid terrace, three-bedroom council house. Due to Mary’s career as a local midwife, the McCartney’s were a very well known family in Speke. It is said that, 72 Western Avenue is the first house that Paul remembers living at and he speaks very fondly of his six years living there.

Following the huge success of the sale of John Lennon’s childhood home at 9 Newcastle Road in 2013 and George Harrison’s home at 25 Upton Green in 2014, by Entwistle Green and Countrywide Property Auctions, the current owner has decided to auction their property thorough the auctioneers.

Stephen Giddins, Regional Sales Director of Merseyside based selling agent Entwistle Green, said:

“We are delighted to be acting on behalf of the current owner of 72 Western Avenue, a property which has such a unique history. 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.

“Taking into consideration the location, the property itself and the background we expect a lot of interest locally and internationally and would urge all interested parties to register their details as soon as possible to ensure they don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.”
