The Camden house where Amy Winehouse lived and died has been put up for sale by her family for £2.7m.

The area outside the three-bedroom property was turned into a shrine by her fans following the singer's death in July last year. Now, her relatives have decided to place the house on the market saying it would be inappropriate for any of them to move in.

There had been rumours that the villa in Camden Square, north-west London, could be turned into the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up to support causes close to the singer's heart.

A family spokesman told the Sun: "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. 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."

The property is listed online as a "substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private front and rear gardens."
