The house where John Lennon was born and raised has been sold at auction for £480,000.

The property at 9 Newcastle Road in Wavertree, Liverpool was given a guide price between £150,000 and £250,000.

According to a report in The Guardian, the red brick terraced house was bought by an anonymous American fan who placed the winning bid via telephone.

The Guardian quotes Andrew Brown, managing director of auctioneer Countrywide Property: “There was a lot of interest in the property before the auction from potential buyers who lived in the UK and internationally.

“The auction was very exciting with a number of keen buyers bidding for the property and we are delighted to have sold such an iconic piece of The Beatles and Liverpool’s history.”

Lennon’s second home, Mendips, on Menlove Avenue in Woolton received Grade II listed status in 2012.
