VIEW AND BID
Omega Auctions are proud to present the former childhood home of George Harrison. George and his family moved into the property in 1950 when George was just 6 years old and here they spent 12 important and happy years prior to moving in 1962. During this period the house became a regular rehearsal venue for The Quarrymen and then latterly The Beatles. There are numerous pictures of George inside and outside the property (example pictures included in the listing).
A truly unique opportunity to own the property where George spent his formative years and that played an important part in helping The Beatles flourish soon after the Harrison family moved in 1962. Whether you want to live here yourself or be able to share the space with fellow fans this represents an excellent investment opportunity. Our current vendor bought the property in 2014 and according to Zoopla average house prices in the area have risen 20% since that date.
This spacious 3 bedroom family home 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. A number of original features from George’s time at the property still remain and include the bath, sink, some original doors, hanging rails in wardrobes and outbuildings complete with original doors and decor. In addition to this, the vendor will also be including a large kitchen dresser unit that was found in the outbuildings and would have originally been in the kitchen when George and his family lived there.
Location: Upton Green is located in the suburb of Speke which is approximately 8 miles South East of Liverpool City Centre. Liverpool Airport is nearby and the area is well served by public transport and local amenities including supermarkets and retail parks.
