Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse's home sells for £1.9m

Picture:

Amy Winehouse's home has sold for £1.9 million.

The late singer's semi-detached house in Camden, north London, was originally put on the market for £2.9 million but her father Mitch Winehouse decided to lower the price and put it up for auction after being inundated with requests from fans to visit the property.

A couple in their 40s bought the property - which is located in a ''sought after residential area'' - at auctioneers McHugh & Co at BAFTA members club in Piccadilly, central London, on Monday night (03.12.12).

Mitch said: ''We are sorry to see it go.''

Auctioneer Chris McHugh started the bidding at £1.7 million, describing the house to potential buyers as a ''substantial property in beautiful condition''

The three-bedroom home overlooks Camden Square and comes with underfloor heating, a large garden and a music room with specially made sound proofed walls.

Amy was found dead at the property in July 2011 after dying from alcohol poisoning at the age of just 27.

After Amy's death, Mitch set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to support charitable activities that provide help for young people who are suffering from addiction, ill health and disability or are homeless.

Speaking about how Amy took a homeless girl off the streets and invited her to stay at her West End London home, Mitch revealed: ''It started off when she was in the flat in the West End and Amy was asleep upstairs and this girl was walking around and I thought, 'Hi how are you?' I didn't want to say, 'What are you doing here, who are you?' You know - it's rude.

''So when [Amy] finally decided to wake up I said, 'Who's that young lady that's walking around?' and she said, 'She was homeless dad and I'm looking after her.' ''
