The Beatles legend John Lennon’s childhood home is set to go up for auction.

The house in Liverpool, England, where the late star lived for the first five years of his life will go on sale later this month and is expected to fetch between $225,000 and $375,000.

The current owner, who has not been named, says, “I have made sure original features have been preserved so that they reflect the 1960s period, when the Beatles wowed the whole world with their rock and roll music.

The main structure of the house and features, such as the original Victorian sliding sash windows, are as they were when John Lennon lived here with his parents and his grandparents from 1940 onwards.
