The home where John Lennon spent the first years of his life was sold at an auction this week.
A telephone bidder, who reportedly wanted to remain anonymous, bought the three bedroom brick home in Liverpool for more than $770,000.
That was nearly twice the guide price, of roughly between $241,000 and $402,000. The BBC stated that there was a "bidding war" for the home.
The home is located a few streets away from Penny Lane, the title of a popular song by the Beatles.
