Paul McCartney’s childhood home in Liverpool has sold for over $231,000 at auction. The house, a three-bedroom house is in Western Avenue, Speke where McCartney moved at the age of four in 1947 with his parents and lived there for six years, was bought for $77,000 more than its guide price by an anonymous bidder during an auction at the Cavern Club, which played host to some early Beatles gigs. “We are delighted to have sold such an iconic piece of The Beatles’ and Liverpool’s history,” Andrew Brown, manager of Countrywide Property Auctions, said. “This is an important house because it’s where Paul spent his formative schoolboy years,” Beatles guide Paul Beesley told BBC News. “He was exposed to music from an early age and his dad had a jazz band. Paul’s first instrument was the trumpet. There’s an interesting anecdote about the lady who moved into this house after the McCartneys left. She found a Rupert The Bear book in the loft which was signed with ‘this book belongs to Paul and Mike McCartney [Paul’s brother].’ Paul was a big Rupert The Bear fan and he actually met this lady after hearing she had found the book.” Copyright(c) 2015 RTTNews.com.
