Former Beatles' star George Harrison's home in Upton Green to be sold at auction

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

The former Liverpool home of Beatle George Harrison is set to be sold at auction. The house, 25 Upton Green in Speke, was home to George during the early stages ofBeatlemania – and is believed to have been a popular hang-out for the band during their formative years.

David Coughlin, managing director of Homes Bought Fast – the company responsible for the sale of the house – said the firm had already received national and international enquiries. He added: “We are overwhelmed by the interest surrounding this property. When we heard it was a Beatle’s former house we implemented a lot of research which confirmed it was George’s house – and we still couldn’t believe it. “It’s part not only of Liverpool’s history, but of the world of music, and there’s something very special about being in the same place as the Beatles’ once were”. George was born on February 25, 1943 at his family’s previous home on Arnold Grove, a two-up, two-down terrace in Wavertree. But in 1949 his mum and dad, Harold and Louise, were offered a brand new council house and moved to Speke. Enquiries have already been made to view the property – but only serious bidders will be allowed to see it.
