“It was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep,” said Chris Goodman, a spokesman for the Winehouse family, in a statement. He added that the family had reached the decision with “great regret.”
According to a listing for the 2,500 square-foot home on the site Housenetwork.co.uk, the property includes an “impressive master suite with vaulted ceiling,” three living rooms and private front and rear gardens overlooking the Camden Square.
“There’s a lot of fans getting in touch about it so we’re trying to weed out the genuine interest from people who are just being nosy,” Graham Lock, spokesman for Housenetwork.co.uk, told the Associated Press.
Winehouse was found dead in her home on July 23 last year. Her death was officially ruled as “misadventure” after an inquest in October. The late singer’s blood alcohol content was found to be 416 mg per decilitre at the time of her death, which is more than five times the legal driving limit.
