It might not be on Penny Lane, but Beatles fans have a chance to snap up a genuine piece of rock and roll real estate next week, as Paul McCartney's childhood home comes to auction.
Located at 72, Western Avenue, in Speke, southeast Liverpool, the modest three-bedroom terraced house will be sold at an auction on February 26.
The property was where Paul McCartney lived with his parents until the mid-1950s, and has a guide price of £100,000 ($154,337) or over.
"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," auction house Countrywide said in a press release.
McCartney speaks very fondly of his six years living at the property, it said.
Any interested buyers worried about persistent attention from die-hard fans can breathe a sigh of relief, however. Most Beatlemaniacs opt instead to tour 20, Forthlin Road – the property where McCartney's family moved to in the mid-1950s, as he became a teenager.
The auction will, naturally, take place at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool. The venue was a favorite of the band during their early years, and became the musical home of the U.K.'s cultural heyday, the "Swinging Sixties."
Stephen Giddins, the regional sales director of Merseyside-based estate agent Entwistle Green, said he expected a lot of interest in the property locally, as well as internationally, given its "unique history."
The guide price of £100,000 might look fairly conservative when compared to London's hefty house prices, but it's actually been priced at a slight premium, with similar houses in the area fetching around £10,000 less.
Countrywide has positioned itself as something of a specialist in selling Beatles stars' former properties. It oversaw the sale of John Lennon's childhood home for £480,000 in 2013, which had an initial guide price of £150,000, and George Harrison's home, which fetched £156,000 in 2014.
