It was a place that had become a shrine for her many fans, but today Amy Winehouse's Camden home was finally sold.

The well-known property was bought for nearly £1million less than the original asking price after the singer's family were forced to sell it an auction.

The North London house was purchased by a couple, who are in their forties, for a total of £1.9million despite it origianlly being put on the market for £2.8million.

Amy's father, Mitch, made the decision to lower the price and hand it over to the auction which was held by McHugh & Co at BAFTA members club in Piccadilly, central London.

It is thought the family had trouble trying to sell the house following Amy's death there back in July 2011.

The musician was found in her home, having passed away due to alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.

Following her death, fans gathered outside the four-storey property which overlooks Camden Sqaure, and continued to do so for months.

Amy's family had initially considered using the property as the headquarters for The Amy Winehouse Foundation, but the constant attention from fans made it impossible to set up the charity there.

They were also inundated with "timewasters" who had no intentions of buying the house but were only interested in Amy's celebrity.

Today, Mitch admitted that he and his family were 'very sad to see it go.'

The new owners decided not to comment on their new purchase, with the man simply saying: "I'd rather not discuss it."
