Uri Geller makes pitch for historic domicile

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Any reader with a spare $450k+ burning a hole in his pocket and interested in acquiring Elvis Presley's first house should make his way down to eBay and get busy with the bidding:

Presley bought this Memphis des-res in 1956 with the royalties from Heartbreak Hotel, according to the blurb. It comes with all the expected trappings of musical success, including swimming pool, soundproofed recording area and "the original music note themed wallpaper from 1956!"

Elvis's first house - yours for $450,000k+

Interestingly, it appears cutlery-molesting Israeli mystic Uri Geller has made a number of bids topping out at $351,000, but is currently trumped by a top offer of $450,100.

Potential buyers should note that "all bidders will need to be prequalified before placing a bid in order to ensure financial means as well as seriousness of the bid". They'll also need a strong stomach for 1950s interior design, as this snap demonstrates. ®
