The London home where Amy Winehouse died sold for $3.2 million at an auction. It sold after it failed to attract serious buyers on the real estate market.
The Camden Square house where Amy died last year had stayed empty since it was put up for sale in May, but the house did attract flocks of fans who wanted to pay tribute to Winehouse.
In November, her family decided to put the house up for auction after "the estate agency route didn't work". Media reports claimed the family had been overwhelmed with viewing requests from fans, but not real buyers.
The 2,500-square feet property features three bedrooms, a large dressing room, two bathrooms and a sound-proof music room and gym.
