Going, going, John....Lennon's house sells for £480,000

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

John Lennon's first home was sold to a US buyer for nearly half a million pounds. The red-bricked terrace house,  in Wavertree , where the former Beatle lived with his parents and grandparents, went at auction for a whopping £480,000.

The sale of number nine Newcastle Road was held at the Cavern Club, in Liverpool, and  attracted a handful of potential buyers, including a few international bidders. The three-bedroomed home had a top guide price of £250,000 but went for nearly twice that after a two bidders, one on the floor and one on the phone, became embroiled in a bidding war. But it was an anonymous US bidder on the phone that took the lot. Jason Doll-Steinberg lost out after the price soared way above what he wanted to pay. He travelled all the way from London to try and buy a piece of Beatles history.
