    The family of Amy Winehouse is selling the late singer's home in London's Camden neighborhood.

    "It is with regret that we have to sell Amy's house in Camden Square," her father, Mitch, tweeted Thursday. "It is empty and costing a fortune to secure it."

    The property, where Amy lived until her death at home on July 23, 2011, has been a meeting ground for mourners and fans of the "Rehab" singer.

    "Amy and I both worked on the house and she loved it so much," her father added. "I hope a lovely family buys it as it is so full of love. Mitch."

    Amy's former home is currently on the market with an asking price of approximately $4.2 million.

    The three-bedroom house was originally earmarked as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up by her parents after her death to support causes close to her heart. Amy and her father originally purchased the house in April 2010 for approximately $2.79 million.

    However, family spokesman Chris Goodman said in a statement today that staying in the house now was neither practical nor appropriate.

    "It was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep," he said, adding that the family was leaving it "with great regret."
