LONDON, May 31 (UPI) -- The London house where singer Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning last summer is being sold for $4.2 million, the New York Post reported.

The listing for the property Winehouse bought in 2010 describes it as a "substantial and impressive three double bedroom, three reception room semi-detached period villa with well-proportioned private gardens."

"The Winehouses have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret," a family spokesman told the Post. "Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it. It was not practical to keep it empty while paying for its upkeep. It is a wonderful place and will be a happy family home for someone."

Winehouse was a Grammy Award-winning artist who died at the age of 27 after years of drug and alcohol addiction.
