The late star's family don't want it sitting empty

Amy Winehouse‘s dad has put the late singer’s 3-bedroom London house on the market for £2.7m.

Mitch Winehouse, who bought the place with Amy for £1.8m in April 2010, says it’s ‘with regret’ that it’s gone up for sale.

‘Amy and I both worked on the house and she loved it so much. I hope a lovely family buys it as it is so full of love. Mitch,’ Tweets Mitch.

The online estate agency selling the property describes it as a ‘substantial and impressive 3 double bedroom, 3 reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private gardens.’

Plans to use the building as an HQ for the Amy Winehouse Foundation – a charity set up to help troubled teenagers in need of rehab – have been reconsidered.

Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it,’ a family spokesman tells The Sun.

‘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.’

Amy was found dead at home in July 2011 with a fatal amount of alcohol in her bloodstream.
