Some Original Features Remained – It Previously Sold in 2014
George Harrison’s childhood home, which The Beatles used for rehearsals, has been put up for auction.
The late rocker and his family moved to 25 Upton Green in the Speke area of Liverpool, England in 1950. He was just six years old at the time, and he stayed in that house until 1962 just before The Beatles achieved massive success. The three-bedroom terraced house also became “a regular rehearsal venue for The Quarrymen”, according to Omega Auctions. It was also where Harrison first learned how to play the guitar.
The Quarrymen was the first band Harrison, John Lennon and Paul McCartney played in together.
Over the years, the property had undergone full renovation. However, some original features remained including the original bath, sink and outbuildings.
In 2014, it was sold for £156,000 at an auction at Liverpool’s iconic Cavern Club and bought by a Beatles fan. Harrison’s childhood home is now expected to fetch between £160,000 and £200,000 (or around $216,000-$270,000).
Omega Auctions described it as a “truly unique opportunity to own the property where George spent his formative years and that played an important part in helping The Beatles flourish.” It’s set to go under the hammer on November 30.
On November 30th we’ll offer Geoge Harrison’s childhood home at auction.
