The London home where Amy Winehouse spent her last moments is now being sold by the singer’s dad for £2.7million ($4.2 million).
Amy’s family had originally intended to keep the singer’s trendy Camden house and planned to make the space the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up by the star’s parents.
"They think it's too precious to give up, hence the new HQ idea,” a source told The Sun following Amy’s death. “They don't want to rent it out. And if they sold they think it could attract the wrong kind of buyer as it was where Amy passed away."
Now, however, Amy’s family has decided that it would be impractical to use the three bedroom home as a base for the charity.
"The Winehouses have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret,” a spokesman for the family said. “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."
