Lighter Side: Single-family house or collectible memorabilia?

by Jamie Henry06 Feb 2015
In 1985, a Canadian businessman paid $2.23 million for John Lennon’s 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V. The drum skin featured on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely hearts Club Band, meanwhile, sold for $1.07 million in 2008, and a year later, George Michael paid $2.1 million for the Steinway Model Z piano that Lennon wrote ‘Imagine’ on.

By those amounts, the $150,000 price tag for Paul McCartney’s childhood home in Liverpool is a bargain.

That’s right, McCartney’s former abode is up for sale, and the interior looks like it could very well be unchanged from the time little Paul lived there with his parents throughout the mid-1950s.

The terrace house (apparently British speak for townhouse) has a dining room, a kitchen and a lounge on the main floor, and three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the second floor. The backyard and front lawn are both fenced.

Octopus’ garden extra.

The home is set to be auctioned off later this month at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, the self-professed "nightclub birth place of the Beatles."
