Amy Winehouse’s House Is for Sale
If you're looking to move to London and you happen to have about $4 million lying around, good news: Amy Winehouse's family is putting her house on the market.
The property where Winehouse lived at the time of her death in July 2011, located in the city's Camden Square, is being listed at 2.7 million British pounds, or roughly $4.2 million at the current exchange rate. Although the house was rumored to be a potential location for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, her surviving relatives have apparently decided to part with it completely.
As the Guardian reports, a spokesperson for the family announced the decision by saying, "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."
Described as a "substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private front and rear gardens," the house has apparently had a fairly stable ownership history; according to the Guardian, "it has changed hands once in more than 40 years," and has "undergone major structural and cosmetic refurbishment."
