Amy Winehouse’s death house sold for 1m pounds less than expected
London: The London home where Amy Winehouse died has been sold at an auction for nearly 1 million pounds less than the original asking price.
The late singer’s period property was originally put on the market for 2.8 million pounds but Amy’s father Mitch decided to reduce the asking price and sell it at auction after being inundated with viewing requests by fans, a leading daily has reported.
So the north London house, which has become an unofficial shrine to the singer, was sold for just 1.9 million pounds.
The house, which overlooks London’s Camden Square, has become a much visited spot after the musician died from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 last July.
After her death fans held vigils outside the home to pay tribute to the star.
The property was bought by a couple in their 40s at auctioneers McHugh and Co at BAFTA members club in Piccadilly, central London.
After the singer’s death last summer there were plans to transform the property into the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation charity set up in her name, but this was shelved due to fears there would be constant attention from fans.
