Amy Winehouse's former home put up for sale by 'regretful' father Mitch
Thursday 31 May 2012
Amy Winehouse's father has said he decided to put his late daughter's home up for sale "with regret".
Thousands of mourning fans flocked to the three-bedroom property in Camden, north London, and transformed the nearby square into a shrine following the Back To Black star's death last July.
Now 10 months on, it has been decided the property should be put on the market for £2.7 million.
Mitch Winehouse said today: "It is empty and costing a fortune to secure it. Amy and I both worked on the house and she loved it so much.
"I hope a lovely family buys it as it is so full of love."
There had initially been suggestions that the villa in Camden Square 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 property is listed online 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 just once in more than 40 years and has undergone major structural and cosmetic refurbishment, according to online estate network House Network.
The property has kept some original features, but there have also been modern upgrades including an integrated sound system and CCTV, the sales pitch says.
A number of pictures are included on the advert, including images of the spacious kitchen complete with a black and white chequered floor.
The majority of the large rooms have been painted white and have dark wooden floors and ceiling beams.
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.
