London, March 02 (ANI): Troubled pop star Amy Winehouse, who has just headed back to London after a two-month Caribbean holiday, is all set to shift to a new home in Barnet.

Winehouse's will be leaving her mansion in Camden in a bid to settle down in North London's Barnet.

As Camden holds multifarious bad memories for the 'Back to Black' hitmaker, her mother Janis bought a home in Barnet, while her daughter was away holidaying.

"Amy has had a wonderful two months living the high life in St Lucia and, of course, she's sad to be back to reality. But after getting her act together and staying off the drugs, she's determined to stay clean," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

"Camden holds a lot of bad memories - especially the time spent there with Blake. So while she was away her mum Janis went house-hunting on Amy's behalf, looking at pads near her own," the source added.

Winehouse's mother bought the mansion in Barnet in a bid to keep her daughter close to her, so that she could keep an eye on her.

"She found a Regency-style four-bedroom townhouse in a middle-class, suburban area in Barnet. At around £1.4million it wasn't cheap but Amy can afford it. Janis wants Amy close to her, so she can keep a strict eye on her daughter," the source said.

"The move is to ensure Amy stays out of harm's way and focuses on making great music," the source added.

Winehouse, who was busy writing songs during her holiday, has also been working on her 12-year-old goddaughter Dione's debut album.

Meanwhile, she has clearly declared that she is back in London for her god-daughter, and not for her estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

"I'm here for Dionne - not Blake," she said.

The duo's divorce is expected to be finalized early this summer. (ANI)
