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 told MailOnline: 'The Winehouses have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret.
'Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it.'
Amy's place: The home where the singer lived, and died, is up for sale
Plush pad: The property boasts three large living areas
'It was not practical to keep it empty while paying for its upkeep. It is a wonderful place and will be a happy family home for someone.'
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.
Rooms spare: The Camden home also has three large bedrooms with impressive views
'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.
Big pad: The home has over 2,500 square feet and has been renovated in recent years to a high standard
Private sanctuary: There are private gardens to the front and rear of the property
While many laid flowers, pictures and gifts other were seen drinking and dancing to celebrate her life.
On the day of the funeral well-wishers celebrated her life with a party.
Meanwhile Amy's neighbours want to plant a rose garden in her memory to mark the first anniversary of her death.
Locals hope 'Amy's Garden' will be a fitting tribute to the tragic star, who died last July aged 27.
They plan to ask her dad Mitch to open it in Camden Gardens, opposite her north London pad, which is now on the market for £2.7 million.
Plenty of space: The home has four floors and the master bedroom boasts an en suite and a dressing room
Remembering Amy: Shortly after her death fans flooded to Camden square to leave tributes and flowers
Friend Karl St Claire said: 'Amy loved roses so the neighbours have been talking about chipping in and planting a rosebush for her and maybe getting a bench either side so people can go and sit there. They want to ask Mitch to plant it.
'I think it would be a lovely place for people to go and remember her rather than hanging around outside her house and her memory really will live on.
Camden Square, where Amy lived for just a few months before she died from alcohol poisoning on July 23rd last year, has now become a shrine to the Rehab singer.
Some residents have complained to the council about graffiti, rubbish and damage to the trees in the area.
Local road signs - which were defaced and stolen by hardcore fans who residents have dubbed the 'Am-ish'- have had to be reinstalled higher up so fans cannot reach them.
One neighbour, who gave his name as Pete, said: 'It felt a bit threatening in the days after Amy died, but it seems to have quietened down a lot now.
'You get groups of fans out there, but they're mainly tourists. You still get a few freaky people, but it is Camden.
'I feel sorry for whoever moves into her house though. I wouldn't want to live there. People are always outside it and ringing the bell. It would drive me mad.'
Remembering her in their own way: Some fans left alcohol while others left street art on the signs
