Gone but not forgotten: Late singer Amy Winehouse's Camden home is now up for sale

Following her death on July 23 last year, her Camden home was swamped with thousands of mourners wishing to pay tribute to the star.

But the home where Amy Winehouse lived and died is being sold by her father Mitch for 2.7million, according to reports.

The impressive Camden property, which is 2,500 square feet, has been listed just ten months after Amy passed away from alcohol poisoning.

The online estate agent Housenetwork.co.uk describe the property as a 'Substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi detached period villa with well-proportioned private front and rear gardens, directly overlooking Camden Square and its communal gardens.'

The agent makes no mention of former owner Amy, who suffered battles with drink and drugs for the last years of her life.

The site notes the property has ' undergone major structural and cosmetic refurbishment retaining many
original features with modern upgrades including, new electrical and
heating systems, integrated sound system, CCTV and magnetically secured
front gate and an impressive Master Suite with vaulted ceiling.

A spokesperson for Mitch Winehouse was unavailable for comment earlier today.

It had been thought the property
would be used by the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was set up by her
father following her passing.

Shortly after her death last year a source close to the family told The Sun: 'They think it's too precious to give up hence the new HQ idea.

'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.'

According to the paper Mitch bought the home for Amy in April 2010 paying 1.8million.

In the days after Amy's death fans flocked outside her home to pay tribute to her in their own way.

'We're devastated and I'm speechless, but thanks for coming.'
