The house where Amy Winehouse was found dead in July 2011 was sold on December 3rd for £1.9million; £1million below the original asking price.
The singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse, put the house on the market for £2.8million, but decided to slash the tag price after being inundated with viewing requests from fans.
The north London house, which reportedly attracted four interested buyers, was thought to have been bought by a couple in their 40’s at auction in London.
Auctioneer Chris McHugh, who described the house as “substantial property in beautiful condition,” started the bidding at £1.7million. The four-storey, semi-detached house has a large garden, three bedrooms, underfloor heating, and soundproofed music room.
After more than a year since the five-time Grammy winner died, the house still received tributes from fans, making the house almost a type of shrine of the singer.
