John Lennon's childhood home
The three-bedroom red brick terrace, in the Penny Lane area of Liverpool, was his first house and where the late Beatles legend lived from his birth in 1940 with his parents and grandparents until he was five. The property, which went on the market for £150,000, was bought by an anonymous American who is a big fan of the Fab Four at an auction in the city’s Cavern Club, where The Beatles played nearly 300 times.

Lennon’s second home – Mendips, on Menlove Avenue in Woolton – was last year given Grade II listed status by English Heritage.
