Paul McCartney’s childhood home is to be sold at auction next month with a guide price of just £100,000.

The Beatles legend moved into 72 Western Avenue as a four-year-old in 1947 and lived there for six-years.

His old home in Speke, Liverpool, boasts a hallway, lounge, dining room and kitchen along with three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

It has a front and rear gardens and the owners have now decided to sell up.

The property will be sold at an auction held at the Cavern Club in London on February 26, with selling agent Entwistle Green giving a guide price of just #100,000.

This is #77,000 less than the average price paid for a home in England and Wales and around the same price paid for a posh London parking space.

But a bidding war between Beatles fans could send the price soaring.

In October 2013, John Lennon’s childhood home sold at auction for £480,000. George Harrison’s old house sold last year for £156,000.

Stephen Giddins, regional sales director of Entwistle Green, said: “We are delighted to be acting on behalf of the current owner of 72 Western Avenue, a property which has such a unique history.

“The Beatles, arguably one the biggest bands of all time, still attract thousands of visitors to Liverpool each year, so to get the opportunity to offer for sale Paul McCartney’s childhood home is very exciting.

“Taking into consideration the location, the property itself and the background we expect a lot of interest locally and internationally and would urge all interested parties to register their details as soon as possible to ensure they don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.”
