Amy Winehouse's home has been put up for sale by her family for £2.7m.

The street outside three-bedroom house in Camden, north London, was turned into a shrine for the late singer after her death there in July 2011.
Her relatives have said they are placing the house on the market as it would be inappropriate for any of them to move into it, The Guardian reports.

There had been suggestions that the property could be used as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up in the singer's memory that will fund causes close to the her heart including a new performing arts scholarship to Sylvia Young Theatre School where she herself went as a teenager.

According to a report in The Sun, a family spokesperson said: "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, which is on the market for £2,699,950 is described as a "substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private front and rear gardens."

Amy Winehouse passed away in June last year at the age of 27.
