Amy Winehouse's Camden home to be auctioned
The property has been on the market since May but failed to sell
The late singer's Camden Square property will be auctioned off on December 3, after it failed to sell when her family put it on the market in May, with an asking price of £2.7 million.
The guide price for the north London property at the auction is £1.8 million. The auction is being conducted through the headquarters of Bafta in Piccadilly, London by McHugh & Co, reports BBC News.
The body of Amy Winehouse was found at the property on July 23, 2011. The auction catalogue does not mention the house's connection to the singer.
Burglars recently broke into the property and stole two dresses worth £130,000, including the white anchor print dress worn by Winehouse for her Miami marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006 and the newspaper print dress she wore during a performance on Later... with Jools Holland later that year.
The dresses were to be auctioned off to raise funds for the Amy Winehouse Foundation with the wedding dress expected to make around £100,000 and the newspaper print dress £30,000.
This Christmas will see the release of a comprehensive 'Amy Winehouse at the BBC' boxset. Scroll down to see a trailer for the release.
