The North London house where Amy Winehouse lived and was found dead will be placed on the auction block. The three-bedroom house in Camden Town will be sold through British auctioneers McHugh & Co. on Dec. 3.

Winehouse’s home had been on the market since May, but the Winehouse family was unable to find anybody willing to pay the £2.7 million ($4.28 million). They’ve since reduced the price to £1.8 million ($2.85 million).

According to a source, most people who inquired about the house did so out of curiosity. “There were lots of nosey timewasters and no progress was being made,” the source told the London Evening Standard. “So they felt an auction would be the simplest way of selling the house. The auction will vet bidders and only allow people in who are in a position to buy.”

The 2,500-square-foot house contains a gym and music room. Her family had hoped to use the property as a headquarters for the foundation established in her name after her death, but the attention given to the house by her fans made it unfeasible.

The auction will take place at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) headquarters in Picadilly.
