John Lennon‘s childhood home is set to go under the hammer (Not Maxwells Silver one!) at Liverpool’s Cavern Club this month (October 29).

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

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.”
