Amy Winehouse's London Home For Sale

by at . Comments

The family of Amy Winehouse is selling the home in London's Camden neighborhood where the singer lived, struggled and ultimately died last summer.

"It is with regret that we have to sell Amy's house in Camden Square," her father, Mitch, tweeted today. "It is empty and costing a fortune to secure it."

The property, where Amy lived until her death at home on July 23, 2011, has become a meeting ground for mourners and fans of the "Rehab" singer.

Amy Winehouse Steps Out

"Amy and I both worked on the house and she loved it so much," her father added. "I hope a lovely family buys it as it is so full of love. Mitch."

The three-bedroom house was originally earmarked as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up by her parents.

However, family spokesman Chris Goodman said in a statement that the family staying in the house now was neither practical nor appropriate.

"It was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep," he said, adding that the family was leaving it "with great regret."

Amy's former home - purchased for $2.79 a few years ago - is currently on the market with an asking price of approximately $4.2 million.

What economic downturn? Maybe it has more cachet now ... although you wonder if everything that happened within those walls is net positive.
