Amy Winehouse returns from St Lucia to settle in the suburbs

3 MARCH 2009
A five-bedroom house in a quiet North London suburb is not where you'd expect to find wild child pop star Amy Winehouse. But that's where the 25-year-old has now set up home.

Arriving back in London on Sunday following a two-month Caribbean holiday, former Camden resident Amy headed to a 1.4 million house, complete with curved driveway and Hollywood Hills palm-tree garden in Barnet, Hertfordshire.

The gated property which it is thought the Back To Black star's mum Janis chose so Amy could be closer to her and her father Mick - is located a short distance from where Amy grew up in Southgate.

While her arrival in the leafy suburb has received a less-than-enthusiastic reception from some of the neighbours, Amy's extended break seems to have given her a renewed enthusiasm for the British capital. "I love London more than anywhere else," she says.
