Through the keyhole: A look inside Amy Winehouse’s home

Sunday 18th November 2012

Amy Winehouse was renowned for her own signature retro style with clothes taken from the 1950's and 60's era.

Amy's style of dress, makeup, hair and shoes displayed genuine originality and was uniquely all her own.

Yet, Amy's unique fashion sense is not replicated by her home, with a wide range of contemporary fixtures that are both classic and traditional.

Almost 18 months after her death, the singer’s property has been listed for sale at auction and Choices Today has been given a peek inside the property which is offered at a guide price of £1.8 million.

The semi-detached house in Camden, which features three-bedrooms, two bathrooms, a gymnasium, reception room, and a sound proofed ‘music room’, will go under the hammer next month after it failed to sell for an asking price of £2.7 million.

Overlooking Camden Square, which fans turned into a shine in the days following the singer’s death, the property reportedly attracted a few viewings, with at least two parties putting in offers. But the deals collapsed as the prospective purchasers failed to raise the necessary finance.

The property, which was originally listed for sale in May, is now being marketed for sale by North London-based McHugh & Co auction firm.

Auctioneer Chris McHugh said: “We have had a lot of people requesting to view the house so far, but at this early a stage of instruction we are not sure how many prospective buyers are serious.

“[To avoid timewasters] we are asking potential bidders to pay to download the legal pack relating to the property.”

“We have guided the house at £1.8 million, but ultimately it will fetch its level on the day of the auction,” he added.

The 27-year-old singer, who is most famous for her ‘Back to Black’ album, released in 2006, was found dead at the property on 23 July 2011. A corner recorded a verdict of misadventure after the death of the singer whose alcohol content was over five times the drink-drive limit.

Amy Winehouse’s former home will be offered for sale, along with 32 other lots, at McHugh & Co’s next auction on Monday 3 December 2012 at the BAFTA headquarters in Picadilly Circus.
