George Harrison’s childhood home goes under the hammer

George Harrison’s childhood home goes under the hammer

The home where Beatles guitarist George Harrison spent many of his formative years is due to go under the hammer.

The three-bedroom home in Liverpool has an estimated price between £160,000 and £200,000 ($AUD 291-364,000), with auctioneer Paul Fairweather describing it as “a steal”.

Harrison moved into the house with his family in 1949, when he was six-years-old, and lived there until 1962.

He rehearsed with John Lennon and Paul McCartney in the house while the trio were called The Quarrymen - the band that eventually became The Beatles.

The house has undergone renovations since Harrison lived there, but some original features still remain, including the bath, sink, some original doors, outbuildings, and a large dresser that would have been there during Harrison’s time.

“George will have learned to play the guitar in this house and the photos of the group gathering there in the early 1960s are amazing to see,” Mr Fairweather said.

He is also expecting interest in the property to grow following the release of Peter Jackson’s documentary The Beatles: Get Back.

Potential owners of the home can also apply for a blue heritage plaque to be displayed at the property.
