The childhood home of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has sold at auction for £150,000.
The terraced house in Liverpool sold for £50,000 over its guide price and was bought by an anonymous bidder at the auction last week.
The house, in Speke in Liverpool, has been described as "the first house I remember" by McCartney. He moved into the property at the age of four with his parents in 1947, and the family lived there for six years.
Although the new owner has chosen to remain anonymous, estate agents handling the sale said that although a number of buyers from across the world had shown interest in the property, the buyer is a man from the UK.
"We are delighted to have sold such an iconic piece of The Beatles and Liverpool's history," said Andrew Brown, managing director at Countrywide Property Auctions.
Recently, it has been revealed that Paul McCartney is working with Lady Gaga, after the pop star shared a photo on social media.
