Amy Winehouse's Property Sells For Nearly 1 Million Less Than Hoped
Amy Winehouse’s Camden property recently sold for nearly one million less than its original asking price. The home overlooking Camden Square has been an unofficial shrine for the singer since her death in 2011, as fans from around the world stop to take pictures and leave notes for the late artist…
The home has four storeys, three bedrooms, a large garden, heated floors, and a sound proofed music room. The property went on the market for £2.8 million but was sold at auction for £1.9 million; it is thought buyers were put off with fans surrounding the location were Amy passed away.
The five-time Grammy award winner died in the home from alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011. Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse said of the home: “We are very sorry to see it go.
Meanwhile, a painting called Amy-Blue recently went on display at the National Portrait Gallery; the picture by Marlene Dumas is a melancholy image tinted blue and is said to be influenced by the fatal ‘blues’ she experienced in life.
According to The Guardian, Amy’s dad Mitch Winehouse said of the art: "It is a fantastic piece of work and we are fascinated to know how Amy was seen and remembered by family, friends and artists of all kinds. With the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Amy is our inspiration and it is profoundly moving to find that she still inspires so many others too."
