Amy Winehouse\'s home is for sale
The house Amy Winehouse lived and died in is being sold for Â£2.7million.
The property in Camden, London has been put on the market by her father Mitch Winehouse who used the place as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation after her death last July, aged 27.
The parent purchased the house with his daughter in April 2010 for Â£1.8million and although relatives originally wanted to hang on to the home, that have now decided to sell.
A family spokesman told The Sun: 'The Winehouses have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret. Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it.
'It was not practical to keep it empty while paying for its upkeep. It is a wonderful place and will be a happy family home for someone.'
The online estate agency selling it describes the house as a 'substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private gardens'.
The listing says it has undergone major refurbishment with features including an 'integrated sound system, CCTV and a master suite with vaulted ceiling'.
Last year a source close to the family told The Sun: 'They think it's too precious to give up, hence the new HQ idea.
'They don't want to rent it out. And if they sold they think it could attract the wrong kind of buyer as it was where Amy passed away.'
