Amy Winehouse's Home On Sale !

Following her passing on July 23 last year, Amy Winehouse's Camden house was swamped with thousands of mourners wishing to pay tribute to the troubled star.



But the home where Amy Winehouse lived and died is reportedly being sold by her father Mitch for £2.7million.

The impressive Camden property, which is 2,500 square feet, has been listed just ten months after Amy died from alcohol poisoning.

It has to be noted that the online estate agent Housenetwork.co.uk describe the property as a "Substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi detached period villa with well-proportioned private front and rear gardens, directly overlooking Camden Square and its communal gardens."

The agent makes no mention of former owner Amy, who suffered from alcohol and drug addiction for the last years of her life.

It has to be mentioned that the site notes the property has  undergone major structural and cosmetic refurbishment retaining many original features with modern upgrades including, new electrical and heating systems, integrated sound system, CCTV and magnetically secured front gate and an impressive Master Suite with vaulted ceiling.

A spokesperson for Mitch Winehouse told MailOnline: "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."

It had been thought the property would be used by the "Amy Winehouse Foundation", which was set up by her father following her passing.





Shortly after Amy's death 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."

According to the paper Mitch bought the home for Amy in April 2010 paying £1.8million.







In the days after Amy's death fans flocked outside her home to pay tribute to her in their own way.While many laid flowers, pictures and gifts other were seen drinking and dancing to celebrate her life.

It has to be said that on the day of the funeral well-wishers celebrated her life with a party.

Meanwhile Amy's neighbours want to plant a rose garden in her memory to mark the first anniversary of her death.




Locals hope "Amy's Garden" will be a fitting tribute to the tragic star, who died last July aged 27.

They plan to ask her dad Mitch to open it in Camden Gardens, opposite her north London pad, which is now on the market for £2.7 million.

 Friend Karl St Claire stated: "Amy loved roses so the neighbours have been talking about chipping in and planting a rosebush for her and maybe getting a bench either side so people can go and sit there. They want to ask Mitch to plant it."

"I think it would be a lovely place for people to go and remember her rather than hanging around outside her house and her memory really will live on" Claire added.

One neighbour quoted as saying : "It felt a bit threatening in the days after Amy died, but it seems to have quietened down a lot now.You get groups of fans out there, but they're mainly tourists. You still get a few freaky people, but it is Camden.I feel sorry for whoever moves into her house though. I wouldn't want to live there. People are always outside it and ringing the bell. It would drive me mad."
