Amy Winehouse Home For Sale
Camden villa where singer died in July 2011 is listed at £2.7m after family deems it ‘inappropriate for us to live there.’
The London home where Amy Winehouse lived and died has been put up for sale by her family for £2.7m.
Thousands of mourning fans flocked to the three-bedroom property in Camden and transformed the square where it sits into a shrine following the singer’s death last July.
Ten months later her relatives are placing the house on the market, saying it would be inappropriate for any of them to move in.
There had been rumours that the villa in Camden Square, north-west London, could be turned into the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up to support causes close to the singer’s heart.
The Sun reported a family spokesman as saying: “The Winehouse’s 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 property is listed at £2,699,950 and described as a “substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private front and rear gardens.”
It has changed hands once in more than 40 years and had undergone major structural and cosmetic refurbishment, according to the website House Network.
The property has retained a number of original features with modern upgrades including new electrical and heating systems, an integrated sound system and CCTV, the sales pitch adds.

Winehouse was 27 when her body was discovered in a bed at the property after a long battle with drink and drugs. It prompted an outpouring of emotion from fans with thousands flocking to the affluent square to lay tributes outside the singer’s gated home.
