The London residence where Amy Winehouse died can be yours--if the price is right.

After being put up for sale last May and failing to score any takers, the late Grammy-winning singer's Camden Square house will now be auctioned off to the highest bidder at a substantially reduced appraisal.

According to the U.K.'s Camden New Journal, property specialists McHugh &Co., who are handling the sale, plan to start the bidding at $2.8 million. That's quite a far cry from the $4.2 million Winehouse's father, Mitch, was hoping to get for the three-bedroom abode.

The home, which was originally set to be the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity he set up in her memory, became something of a shrine to the 27-year-old songstress following her death on July 23, 2011.

Per the auction catalogue, the estate consists of "a substantial semi-detached house" which has been "modernized to an exceptionally high standard" and features a video entry phone in the door, a gym and a music room with soundproofed walls.

The family expressed regret over having to sell the property, but the decision was necessary.

"It is empty and costing a fortune to secure it," tweeted Mitch at the time it was put on the market.
