Amy Winehouse home in Camden put up for sale at �2.7m
The home in Camden, north London, where singer Amy Winehouse lived and died is up for sale at �2.7 million.
Ten months after the star’s death her family has decided to place the house on the market saying it would be inappropriate for any of them to move in.
This quashes the rumours that the villa in Camden Square could be used as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up to support causes close to the singer’s heart.
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.”
Thousands of mourners flocked to the three-bedroom property and transformed the square where it sits into a shrine following the Back To Black star’s death last July.

Winehouse was 27 when her body was discovered in a bed at the property after a long battle with drink and drugs.
