Winehouse's family to sell her home

THE family of Amy Winehouse has put the late singer's London home up for sale.

The three-bedroom property in the Camden neighbourhood of northwest London has become a shrine of sorts for mourning fans who left flowers and tributes following Winehouse's death in July last year from alcohol poisoning.

Chris Goodman, a spokesman for the Winehouse family, said today the singer had loved the house and her family put it on the market because they felt it would be inappropriate for any of them to live there.

"It was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep," he said in a statement, adding that the family had reached the decision with "great regret".

The 232 sqm home features three bedrooms - including an "impressive master suite with vaulted ceiling" - three living rooms and private front and rear gardens overlooking the tony Camden Square, according to online listing agent Housenetwork.co.uk.
