That’s right! One lucky Amy Winehouse fan could find themselves becoming part of Winehouse history by buying the singer’s fabulous north London home. Mind you, it won’t be cheap. The Camden property is up for auction in December with a guide price of £1.8 million.
But you’ll be getting plenty for your money. As well as the cachet of living in the former home of a rock star, the house boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a gym, a reception room and Amy’s especially sound-proofed music room. All this in an imposing Victorian semi-detached townhouse with an NW1 postcode – so overall, not bad value for money, given the fact that it may one day be eligible for a blue plaque on the wall. These small blue discs are put on London properties to celebrate a former resident and generally enhance the value.
Amy Winehouse shot to fame in the UK with her first album, Frank, but with her second record, Back to Black, she achieved true global domination: in 2006 she won five Grammys in one evening, including three of the big four, Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Produced by Mark Ronson, with a sound reminiscent of the girl groups of the 50s and 60s, Back to Black sold millions of copies around the world, going Platinum 71 times in 23 countries. But sadly success didn’t banish Amy’s demons and she tragically died in 2011.
