The family of Amy Winehouse has put the late singer's London home up for sale for 2.7 million pounds ($4.2 million).

The three-bedroom property in the Camden neighborhood of northwest London had become a shrine of sorts for mourning fans who left flowers and tributes following Winehouse's death last July from alcohol poisoning.

Chris Goodman, a spokesman for the Winehouse family, said the family put the house on the market because they felt it would be inappropriate for any of them to live there and it was not practical to keep it empty while paying for its upkeep.

Goodman said in a statement Thursday that the Winehouse family reached the decision "with great regret."
