Get a few million laying around? The Camden, London home where songbird Amy Winehouse lived and died is now on the market.
Winehouse, 27, was found dead in her apartment house last July. An inquest into her death ultimately concluded that later the Grammy winner was five times the legal alcohol limit at the time of her death. The “Me and Mr. Jones” star succumbed to alcohol poisoning, a coroner later determined.
The Camden property is being sold by Amy’s father, former cabbie Mitch Winehouse, who used the place as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation after the singer’s death. Mitch purchased the house with his daughter in April 2010.
Family spokesman Chris Goodman tells The Sun that Amy’s old place has become a mecca for grieving fans. Nonetheless, the family has decided to part with it.
“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.”
The house is listed as a “substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private gardens.” The listing also notes that the 2,500 square-foot home has undergone major refurbishment with features including an “integrated sound system, CCTV and a master suite with vaulted ceiling.”
The asking price is $4.2 million.
