Winehouse estate loses almost three quarters of a million on Camden house sale
However, after failing to secure a buyer and being inundated with requests from fans to view the property, the Winehouse family decided to put the house up for auction and took a £720,000 reduction on the original asking price.
The four-storey house, facing Camden Square in north London, sold to a couple in their 40s, for £1.98 million.
When the property went on the market, residential conveyancing experts had said that the property had not been given an excessive price tag and that any similar home would have probably been marketed in the same price bracket.
However, speculation has been rife that the association with the late singer, who died of alcohol poisoning at the home in July 2011, may have had a detrimental effect on the sales process and as the auctioneer ended the 10-minute auction he said that the final bid was “no-price for the house”.
Following the house sale, Mr Wine house said, “We are very sorry to see it go.”News
