Countrywide Property Auctions are delighted and honoured to once again be invited to offer at auction, another piece of Beatles history – 25 Upton Green was the childhood home of the youngest Beatle, George Harrison.
The Harrison family moved into the then council house in 1950, when George was just six years old; he spent 12 happy years living there before fame and stardom whisked him away in 1962. It was from here that George walked the short distance to the bus stop to take him to school at the Liverpool Institute for Boys each day. It was at that very bus stop that he befriended another Institute pupil; Paul McCartney. McCartney was already a member of John Lennon’s band, The Quarrymen; and recognising George’s talent with the guitar, he was eventually invited to join. Despite his young age, 25 Upton Green became a regular rehearsal venue for The Quarrymen, due in large part to the tolerance of George’s parents.
Pictured left is George with the band rehursing in one of the rooms at the property.
In recent years, the property has undergone a complete renovation with a hallway, lounge, kitchen/dining room and a family sized rear garden. The first floor includes three spacious bedrooms, bathroom and WC.
Following on from the success of last Novembers sale of 9 Newcastle Road – John Lennon’s first house, Countrywide Property Auctions are once again returning to the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool’s city centre on 20th October at 7pm, where we hope to sell another piece of Liverpool’s musical herritage under the hammer.
