Elvis Presley’s abandoned childhood home sold for just £35k
Elvis Presley’s derelict childhood home sold for just £35,000 as its new owner revealed what he intends to do with the property. The bungalow, located in east Tupelo in Mississippi, was Elvis’s childhood home during part of World War II.
The new owner has taken the structure apart and plans to reassemble it in a new location.
Rockhurst Auctions Owner Jeffrey Marren said The Sun Online: “The owner plans to put the house back together, outfitting it with 1930s furniture and housewares, then adding other Elvis collectibles.”
Marren also suggested that a production company might be planning to make a documentary about the reconstruction of Elvis’s old house.
There has reportedly been interest in the house for some time and reassembling the property has been described as a “long-term project for the winter”.
It was originally listed for just £25,000.
The three-bedroom home was built by The King’s great-uncle Noah Presley, and the rock star lived there from 1943 to 1944.
The property at 1241 Kelly Street is also about 1,150 feet from Elvis’ birthplace at 605 Kelly Street.
After Elvis’ brief stint in the Magnolia Estate, the Presleys moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in November 1948.
The superstar would finally settle in his Memphis mansion, Graceland, in March 1957, some 100 miles away from 1241 Kelly Street.
