John Lennon childhood home
The ultimate place to store your Beatles collection?

The house, situated at 9 Newcastle Road in Wavertree, Liverpool, was where the Beatle lived from his birth on October 9, 1940 until he was five, with his parents and grandparents. After this, Lennon was sent to live with his aunt and uncle, Mimi and George Smith.

Steeped in Beatles history, the house is valued at £150,000-250,000 ($243,209-405,398). It is just a few streets away from the famed Penny Lane, and is where Lennon is thought to have written The One After 909 - the opening track to the Beatles final studio album, Let it Be - in later life.

Many of the original features that were present when Lennon lived in the modest three bedroom house have been retained, with the current owner commenting:

"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."

In April, the front door from Paul McCartney's childhood home at 20 Forthlin Road, Allerton, Liverpool sold for £5,060.

We have some remarkable John Lennon memorabilia for sale, including this fantastic signed album from John and Yoko Ono, which is believed to be unique.
